depends on what brand you want. AMD or Intel, and if you want AMD do you want to use the X2 or the AM2 line of processors?

You cant use any A64 or 1xx opterons in a dually. Why? Because they only have one HTT link between them. In a dually setup you need 2 for two processors, 4 for four and so on. Those are more aimed toward workstations and servers, so they are higher priced because of binning and stability testing.

ohhh. so if i wanted to build a system with two single processors instead of one dual, what would i need to do for that? becuase i was just reading this site that compared dual processors to two single processors.
