Can you use two different processors speeds on a dual processing motherboard? ie 750MHz and 1GHz, or do they need to be equal speeds? Does it depend on the motherboard?

I never saw one that would run different speeds. They're often even sensitive to the stepping. You might be able to use a fast CPU with a slow one, but you'd have to slow down the fast one to the slower one's speed.

yep, all the dual proc machines I have seen require same speed and same stepping processors.
