well considering what you're doing, a dual processor system would do more for you than for most others
the Opteron processors are really good for multimedia, the 200 series being 2 way meaning it processes 2 things at a time, so it is basically 2 processors in 1
the 800 series is 8-way, so it is basically 8 processors in 1!
and there is the 100 series, which is 1 way, 1 processor in 1 (hehe)
a dual Opteron would do very well, but even a single Opteron would act as multiple processors most of the time
how much are you planning to spend on the upgrades?
