    You don't :) You wait for intel or AMD to build cpu's with more cores on them :)

    Actually, you can. It's called a Beowulf Cluster. The motherboards are connected through their gigabit Ethernet. But you would need identical computers, special software, and other things. You can read here for more info.

    Er, yes, but I believe that he wants 4 cpu's going through one Mobo, not 4 full cpu's linked together ;)
