I am new to the site and am looking for a recommendation on a processor for new workstations. They will primarily be used for Pro Engineer and Microsoft Office. I am leaning towards the Opteron 152 or the Opteron 252, but I don't really understand the difference bewteen the two. I see that the 200 series offers two capability, but I really don't know what that means.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. I will need to also figure out what motherboard to use with the processor.

These are 940 pin commercial style processors. The 152 (standalone) WON'T work in concert with another processor to multiply your power BUT the 252 will work with another 252 in the same dual processor motherboard. To use these processors, you will need commercial style motherboards made by Tyan, Micron, and others ...
