a rate of 27.6 vs 19.2
So the dual will be 40% faster in the absolute best possible case, possibly achievable with some rendering workload.
Otherwise it will be slower. Worse case is with 1 to 6 thread running. Where the single cpu solution will be 40% faster.
I also been wanting to build an Intel Core i7-3930K based PC, but I'm waiting for a price drop. Cant justify $600 for a CPU

But i do not even know if they make a dual cpu 1155 board. If they do i wonder what the fastest cpu you could get??? 2600k workstation equivalent ? Sure as hell would use a lot less power then a dual 2011 board.
I do know the 3.1ghz 8 core 2011 server chip with HT/16 threads and i think 30mb cache, costs around 1600$ just for the 150watt tdp cpu
