That is not remotely true

AMD had the performance crown until Intel released C2D

Opterons are > Pentium D's
And are still very good chip, especially for a server. And especially since he has 2 on hand. The only deterrant is if he has to pay a premium for a old dual cpu mb.

I'd buy a AMD x4 + mb + memory instead of paying for mb + ram at the old tech prices. If you have the mb + memory or can get them cheap then its a good choice.

AMD K62 > P2
AMD XP > P3
AMD A64 > P4
X2 / Opteron > PD

lol. I love how people still try to say that they thought somebody is talking about pentium when they say PII.

ok, p2's have been out of the technology loop for a very long time, so any time somebody says pII now and isn't talking about old tech, they are talking about phenom II chips.
