Re: Can i dual hook up two desktop computer base units?
The only thing you can do with the other machine is what you suggest. use it for parts *IF* it has better specs than the one your using now. (I.E. - Better/more ram, better CPU, power supply, etc...) but to link them together and make them run as one unit, is not an option.
