I build computers for people and until now I've never had a request for a computer using an Athlon MP processor. The client wants a single processor Athlon MP system. All the motherboards I see are designed for dual processors. Will an Athlon XP motherboard work?
I feel like a complete idiot for not knowing this. Thanks in advance for your help.
I see no real advantages for only using 1 CPU. In gaming, most games will only support 1 CPU anyway. But if the client wants to use only 1 Athlon MP, than I would suggest that he goes with an Athlon XP. They are cheaper and are more compatible with motherboards. Also if he wants to use the computer as a server, than it would be to his benefit to have dual CPU's.
