i was given a dual p3 board w/scsi capabilities, but is running 10gb ide drive. in another system i was given, i have two scsi drives. i would like to combine the two. my first question is, can i runn the two scsi drives and the ide drives? and second, would a dual p3 450mhz make a decent game server for a small lan?

...and i would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for you meddling kids...

thanks crash, i have one more question though. the board is an asus P28-DS and im trying to oc it. the multiplier is at 3.5 right now and when i bump it up to 4 and even 4.5 it is still being reported as P3 450's. i am running nt server right now. am i doing something wrong to your knowledge?

The multiplier in permanently internally locked at 4.5x. Which gives you 4.5x100=450. You need to raise you bus speed in order to overclock. I hear reports that Asus's latest BIOS has FSB adjustment in it for up to 133, even though jumpers only support up to 112MHz (better to adjust in BIOS anyway).
