In your opinion, would there be a performance advantage to using a dual processor system with 300 or 350 Mhz PIIs versus a single processor system with a 450 Mhz PII?  Running Windows NT server,
Front Page 98, Office Pro 97, doing web design work.

Thanks.

Based on what you've said you're doing, spend the money on the 450 PII.  Since none of the apps you've mentioned really have much opportunity speed their work by running threads in the background, they won't gain much from the dual processor setup.
