I'll second that. The cache makes a big difference, and Intel
pushed decent cache only on today's expensive high-end CPUs
"for servers".

It was only a few months ago that I retired my circa 1996 dual
PPro 200 system that I'd used as my main PC. I replaced it with
a dual 1.2 Athlon on a Tyan S2462 Thunder K7 with 512M of Corsair DDR.
Multiprocessing is great, and the new system is much faster,
but that P6DNF was nice.

I've got two quad-capable PPro Compaq Proliant 7000s waiting
in the machine room for tinkering. If I harvest the CPUs
from my old MB and scavenge the other Proliant, I can try
quad SMP.
