I just picked up an old p3 server(compaq proliant 570) upgraded to 5gb of ram, yes 5gb. it also included 6 18.2 gb scsi drives, but only 1 p3 700 mhz. all for 40 bucks.
my question is I found a lot of 4 p3s pulled from similar machines on ebay for 10 bucks, do they have to be *matched* to run togather? how are matched cpus different anyway.

thanks
cheese

btw ram is 8*512 + 8*128

They have to all be the same processor model and preferably stepping (just check the S-Spec on the chip and make sure they all match).

They should be fine as long as they are the same model. Like error says, same stepping would be ideal, but not really necessary.
