I have never had any dealing's with multi processors, so I may sound ignorant with this question.
Is it possible to assign a particular task to a CPU? Eg, I have a PCI Video Input card which effectively renders my PC useless for other task's at the same time, could I have one CPU working the card and s/w (running in background) and the other CPU for my current list of task's.
Or would I be better with my current line of thought, Buy a whole new computer just to run the PCI card!!!
