Add second CPU to ML330 G3

Hi,

I have seen conflicting advice regarding adding a second CPU to a server such as the ML330 G3.

I have a single 2.8ghz CPU currently and need to increase this to a dual CPU server. What is the best option for someone on a budget?

a. Install second CPU as long as the stepping, frequency etc. are the same

b. Get a matched pair of 604 socket 533mhz CPU's (was thinking eBay here)

c. ??

thanks for any help.
