OPTERON 254 ?? should i buy this?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking to upgrade and i have just seen a good deal on 2X second hand opteron 254's

2 opterons 254 (2.8 Ghz.)
BOX version OSA254FAA5BL - AABYE 0518 WPMW

i know next to nothing about new cpu's so i dont know if these are any good. I am building a phase change system so will these processors overclock well? are these good versions of these processors (stepping etc). Can i use these side by side on a dual motherboard or use 1 sell 1? Are there any better opterons than this? Is this stepping good or not? How much should these be selling for second hand? Im in UK btw. any comments or suggestions greatly received.

A 2xx is a two-way processor, so it must be socket940. They are server CPUs only, they require ECC registered RAM and aren't for normal home use.
