Dual CPU systems don't really help you much currently. Windows 98/ME are not even threaded to take advantage of the second processor in SMP setups. So the application has to be specially coded to take advantage of the second CPU. Even in Windows 2000, as I understand it, the second CPU rarely comes in to play. So basically the first CPU does most of the work, while the second just sits there idling away most of the time.

Windows NT supports dual processors..i know thsi for a fact cause i have a huge big freakin book that says windows NT is more stable than other OS also..u can set windows NT to use ceartain apps on which pocessor...either have one app use just one processor or have it use both....I havent gotin NT yet but i dont care that it kinda outdated...it doesnt limit FPS like 2000..which might i add was made from part of the NT structure as i was told but this may not be true...but i belive it is..but that my opinion..so far anyway....anyway NT does support Dual Processors....why 2000 doesnt im not sure but there should be some way if it was made from NT...but then again that may point out that it wasnt made from NT.....just my 2 cents.....also 2000 may be more stable but who knows
