  1. Please don't laugh at this stupid question but im just trying the possiblility. Is there anyway to connect two motherboards to combine the prossessing power and memory?? If so is this at all affordable with a $200 budget.
    thanks.

    Well there are such system used for computer farms & big computing clusters. The hardware used in such projects generally start with prices around the thousands of dollars. It has absolutely no use for a home user & probably would end up being a lot more expensive for such a user then getting a dual-CPU system.

    nice

    thats a nice motherboard, and clean wirering mine are everywhere. How much would a pretty good motherboard cost that would support duel processers and does it add the processers together or just go alittle faster?

    It is a very extensive subject & there's quite a lot of information available on it. A good read is the official SMP FAQ @ 2cpu.com.

    If you ever need more information you can have a look at their other articles or even venture in the forums (make sure to use the Search feature before you ask something that has been asked & answered many times before).
