    Hi all

    (sorry if the question was already asked
    i tried a search but couldnt find any)

    my friend has a MacPro 3.1 mono processor
    i've been upgrading MacPro 1.1 to 2x QuadCore

    would it be possible to upgrade a mono processor machine to a duo processors ?
    i know he ll need to buy an extra heatsink & a second processor

    but will the mac start up normally ? no bios/firmware needed ?

    he uses his mac for web development & image processing
    no video editing nor sound mixing
    will it be a faster machine since only Photoshop is using multiprocessing tasks ?

    thanx for your advice
