Anyone know where one is or how to build a multi-processor system. I don't mean like an X2 lol. I mean like a couple Pentium 2s for a Linuz box or a few P3s for a quake 3 box or something. Any information is welcomed Thank You.
All you have to do is search in google. Google has everything needed to know about anything lol.
I know what your talking about the dual or quad processor systems, not the dual core. Its easy to build a dual Processor opteron or xeon. You just have to buy 2 chips and they should be the same chip for both of them. Get them at the same company/website online of course. Dual pentium 3's exist still and you might be able to build one extremely cheap if your looking for a linux box or your own server firewall system..

List a budget and Ill see what I can do. Just for quake 3 you say? That game really doesnt take alot of resources unless you get alot of people on a server.

The socket 370 dual cpu motherboard is $230 at directron. The cpu's are pretty cheap. I doubt you can get all that under your budget because the motherboard is mainly the most expensive part. They are hard to find. LOL not worth getting it for that price as you can get a sempron+mobo for that price right now. There is no way you can get the stuff for $100. $300 maybe for the 2 cpus and memory and if you find a mobo somewhere that is cheap.
Id rather get a sempron+mobo combo as you can find them cheap. No purpose in getting a dual cpu pentium 3 or 2 as those chips have seen their days and expired. Sempron would be better overall and do what you wanted it to do.
The cpu's are cheap at directron for the socket 370's but I wouldnt touch them.

Actually, I have 2 P4 boxes. Can I run them in tandjum? I heard about it somewhere.
No, pentium 4 is not made to be ran in a dual cpu motherboard. They dont have a motherboard that will support the chip or the socket of the dual pentium4's on a motherboard.
Xeons are the ones that are supported by a motherboard for xeons..

Ok, so guess I'll just have to use my spare POS P4 for the server then.
Haha, what cpu is that particular pentium 4?
The pentium 4 will be faster than two pentium 3's or two pentium 2's anyday.

Are you looking for a real server chip, motherboard and 512mb to 1gb of memory under $400?
