From the way things look, I will need to build another machine and give up my new xp2000 system to linux.
I was thinking of going with dual athlon setup, but dont have any experience with dual CPU machines.
I know that i will need to use MP athlons and a lot better PSU.
I am also planning on putting in a gig or so of memory. But i have no idea on what mobo to go with.

BTW I'm planning on using MP1600.

Would this give any performance as to getting a xp2700 or so.
I am mainly thinking that this is going to be a file/app server that crunches SETI in the spare time.
