Opterons are very good, plus they have the NX stuff.
Transtec sells nice Opteron-based servers:
OpenBSD runs fine on them even with SMP, *except* if you have more than 4 Gb
RAM (the kernel panics, saying that it can't find the end of the RAM... I
had to physically remove RAM in order to have it boot).
