That is a Motherboard for Intel's Xeon series of processors. These are targeted for the server market. Thus, for us enthusiasts, these boards have the disadvantage that they normally don't have any OC options. Also, it is for Xeon CPUs only. Your pentium 4 will not fit.

Yes, you can run dual CPUs in one PC with these and other similar board (AMD version is dual Opterons). However, you'll need quite some powerful software to notice advantages.

The newest Dual Core CPUs (intel 8xx, 9xx series, AMD Athlon X2 and some newer Opterons) basically contain two CPUs in one (at least the cores of two CPUs).

These boards are rarely used by us enthusiasts. We prefer a high end single processor board.

If you looking to upgrade, give us a budget and some thigns you wish, and we can help out.

i have a PHOENIX BIOS and there is a FSB option..
im sorry im kinda new to theis BIOS thing sooo..
what does FSB mean and if I raise the speed what will happen?
and if it is used to OC my cpu what is the recommended level I raise it to?

The FSB is the Front Side Bus, which is basically the frequency on which the motherboard processes information (easiest explanation). Common values are 100MHz (older Pentium 4), 133MHz (lower P4, Celeron) and 200MHz (most modern P4 and pentium D). The CPU is so-called Quad Pumped, meaning that the FSB of the CPU is four times that of the motherboard, thus: 400MHz, 533MHz, and 800MHz. RAM runs often Double Data, hence DDR, at 400MHz.

The CPU has, a mostly always fixed, multiplier. Thus, a CPU with a multiplier of 14 on a FSB of 200MHz (motherboard), runs at 2,800Mhz, or 2.8GHz.

If you raise the FSB, everything on your motherboard runs faster: an FSB of 210 results in a CPU speed of 2.94GHz (14x).

HOWEVER: you DO NOT want to increase the speed of the AGP/PCI bus. This increases the risk of serious damage to AGP / PCI components (esp. video card). A MoBo with only the option of increasing CPU/AGP/PCI FSB simulateously is not a good solution for serious overclockign. A mild increase will be ok (5% or so), but I would not go much higher. A motherboard with options to change the FSP for the CPU/AGP/PCI buses separately is highly preferable.

YEs, you can increase the clock. but you will increase the speed of the AGP/PCI bus also. This is something you don't want. Increasing AGP bus can damage your video card.
