    Will using only one Xeon CPU on a dual socket mobo work like a single socket system?

      Hi all,


      Just a thought. Lets say i want to end up with a dual Xeon system but i can only afford one cpu now and save up for the other one later. Would the performance be about the same if i set up a system with a dual socket mobo like the Intel S5520SC or Supermicro X8DAi compared to the single slot ASUS P6T SE or P6T Deluxe mobo's?
