Right, here's the thing.
It costs $50 more per processor to run a dual Athlon system with Athlon MP, rather than Athlon XP processors. My question is: is it worth it? As far as I can tell, the difference is that MP processors are guaranteed to work, where as XP processors will probably work just as well. As I'm trying to squeeze as much performance out of my buck as I can right now, should I just go for XP processors and damn the consequences?
Anyone done any testing, or got any "a friend of a friend" horror stories for me?
