What do you think of this?

I think this is a pretty fair price...

Not really, you can build better setups for cheaper, just because its dual doesnt make it all that great, your applications would run better on a single p4, then on a dual xeon.

It is a good deal if you wanted a cheap midgrade database server.

Seems kinda expensive IMO for what it is. I agree with Cruz, you might be better served with a single processor system. What are you going to use it for?

Well, they look to be p4 Xeon's. So it's not really a bad price ... but like others have said, unless you really need the extra horsepower (ie: have programs that are going to make use of it), then you'd be better off, configuring a 3ghz single p4, for less money, and more usable horsepower.

If the programs you're going to use don't have multithreading support, they'll only use one processor, while the other will essentially sit idle. So you'd be running at 2.4ghz, not the equivalent of 4.8ghz, if that's what you were hoping on accomplishing.
