I want to know if I have to buy Atholon MP if I want to make a Dual CPU system or if I can use two XP CPUs instead. Also, Can any one recomend a good Dual MoBo to use?

hahahahaha, someone doesn't read posts before he answers.... ;)

Anyway, yes you can use XPs in a dual setup. You have to connect a bridge for it to work. The last L5 bridge i believe, but as moses said, check the SMP forum.
