I'm now very courious with double system processors... I have money to spend and I definately going to buy a new system, so I'm thinking wether to spend the extra bucks for a double processor system. I have $2500-3000. I know that in games theres not a preformance improvement, or just a little one. But I don't care, because games run perfect if I put a Radeon 9800. I'm more interested in the performance working in windows, with various applications running, the ones I work with wich include (they are open simoultaneously noramlly): - MS SQL Enterprise Manager - MS SQL QueryAnalyzer - MS Visual Studio.Net - Macromedia DW, FW and FLASH - Lot's of internet explorers - 1 VNC connected to linux and 2 windows remote desktops. - Of course, Winamp - Corel Draw 11, sometimes I have a lcd panel and a crt monitor connected to the pc, so I work quite intensively with those apps, and some times there are moments where I know that not waiting for the processor to do it's job could save me time, and most important I would be comfortable with the work. Could I have a reasonable performance upgrage that would justify the extra cost of the MP system. Also what's the best approach, Athlon MP, Intel P4 Xeon or AMD Opteron. In the double system I would include 2x the memory and a IDE Raid to gain a bit of speed disk.
