When using a high efficiency PSU (90%), It is a good idea to use one PSU to power two motherboards.
Because those high efficiency PSU are very expensive and also high power ( > 800 Watts).
A normal Intel I5 or I7 plus MB consume only about 200Watts, or maybe 300watts(with a high end graphics card).

An article about one PSU power two MBs:

Doh! I had left the ending slash off when I pasted the link.

I guess
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/Components,1/Power-Supplies,6
is not the same as
