  1. I'm new to building my own PC. I've taken a really bland class on Computer Architecture, so I know the basics of the basics.

    I just guess I have a question that I'm begging to be answered. :dead:

    So does anyone know if there's conflicts with the idea of Dual Core Proc. in a Dual Proc. Motherboard?

    And of course, is it worth it?

    No there will not be any conflict. If the motherboard has a BIOS that supports dual-core processsors, it will use both cores present on each processor.

    That's I have planned and what I'm going to do in summer.

    buy a mobo with that supports 4 physical CPUs

    and then buy all Duel-core

    So I will have 8 logical procs
