processors compare to a processor with multi threading?

Yes, see review of AMD dual core processors and comparison to Intel
equivalent http://www1.tomshardware.com/cpu/20050509/index.html

Server boards available now,most have 2 processors,the boards are quite
fast,even installing xp,or any software,one will notice the diffrence.The
biggest
problem,cost of board,processors,and the pci and agp slots use a diffrent
type
of pin configuration,the two are'nt compatable,as is memory,not compatable.
