If someone says "pentium pro" enough in a thread, I get summoned.
I need to answer those 2 points:
A) if you are stuck on a firm date - I'd go with the pentium 2. PPro is amazing but TECHNICALLY P2 is the "best" in 1997.
B) if you are deadset on a dual board, you're going to spend a big premium unless you get lucky. I personally dont know why prices have gotten so high in the last few years. I blame LGR.
There is only ONE dual ppro board on ebay right now that is useable. its also $300. I didn't do an extensive search, but still. processors are another $100 EASY.
there is currently more selection in the dual slot-1 department.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
