I was over looking some old IBM netfinity manuals from 2001 and saw these dual pentium iii mobo cpu's, it got me thinking does any home users still build these dual physical cpu computers, and is there any advantage to say, two xeon's or two amd-64's [specifically curious about the amd's] ?

 

I did some digging and found that windows 7 will support dual cpu's (according to a question/answer site)

 

Any chance anyone on the board has a recent setup and would like to discuss how they like theirs?

Personally i would be putting ESXi on it, i believe its free now for ^ 32 GIG of ram but it might be single CPU licence only. Could give it a try but dual CPU is more for computations.
