that motherboard is for the 8000 series opterons, not the 2000 series ones 
you quote. The cheapest 8000 series is $1610 each.

According to 
the 2000 series can have 2 processors per motherboard, the 8000 can have 
from 4 to 8, so if you can cool it you can run 48 cores on a single motherboard
... but clearly that is way beyond the $5k target.
