Question Replacing PC hardware with PS2 stuff

I have some old desktop just sitting in my room, it has some old files and such and some junky hardware.

There is a rumor of a super computer that has 2000 ps2 processors.

So I was thinking maybe I could take my old PS2, take the processor out and maybe some other things that could be useful and replace my PC parts with some Ps2 parts.

But there is a problem.

I don't know how.

So pretty much I'm wondering if it is possible to replace PC parts with PS2 parts.

And maybe you take me to link that shows how I can.

No. The computer you are talking about is just like the huge PS3 Folding cluster that used to be used until video cards could run GPGPU. They are just linked together.

The CPU in the PS2 is a 300MHz chip, and running x86 probably slower than a Pentium 1. Whatever you have in the junk computer is most likely (more than likely) going to be faster in the end.
