dear list,Make sure the stepping is identical.
buying two PIII for a dual system ... what do i have to pay attention to (besides the requirements of the M/B)? aka ... are all PIII SMP capable?
Some motherboards require Tualatin's to be able to run dual, others will happily run even Celeron CPU's in smp.
I personally run a Dell Poweredge 1500SC motherboard with two Tualatin 1.13GHz PIII's, and Ive had no problems at all with it. I also run a MSI 649D-Pro motherboard with two PIII 1Ghz (not Tualatin) which also works great, but performance wise it's no match for the dual Tualatin.
I would say Tualatin's are youre best bet, they are a little expensive but they work great in dual systems, thats what they are designed for. Just make sure your motherboard can handle Tualatins.
