Does someone make a dual P4 motherboard?

Also it needs to be something that is upgradable and
can support a Canopus DV Storm2 Card

No. Multiprocessor Intel cpu motherboards use a special chipset and a special version of the P4 called Xeon.

Tyan and others make a Dual Processor mother board. I have a board for PIII and i am currently running Dual 700's. I saw the one for the Xeon but they only go up to a 2.1MHZ processor and I want the fastest out there...

So what is out there or is the Xeon 2.1 the same speed as the P4 hyperthreading CPU.

The Xeon is usually one step behind the latest Pentium core. If you buy a hyperthreading Pentium4, you actually will have similar performance to a dual Xeon system with an OS and applications that support it, like Windows XP Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro. XP Pro wil actually report that you have a dual processor system, since you do have two independent integer units with the HT P4. I'd go with the single fast P4 myself.

I concur.

if large file IO and serious multitasking (ADD issues, anyone?) are your thing, the dual proc Mobos can have better bus throughput via PCI-X, scsi u320, gigalan, etc. Then it's worth serious consideration of a building a 24x7 workstation (dual).

Toms hardware did a recent review of "dual xeons" - but they didn't show the real-world benefits of IO and multitasking. Just single app comparisons, which were only marginally better. so I agree P4 with memory and drives to support will do great for most applications.
