DL580 G1 Upgrades

We have a DL580 G1 with Dual Xeon 700s.

I am looking to upgrade it to 4 processors, and
I know that it has the ability to use an upgraded Xeon processor as well, IIRC the 900 1Mb cache. I would buy the 4 and then use the extra 2 procs in 2 other DL580s that only have a single proc.

Does anyone know where I can find information on these? Prices, etc. I had found a lot of info 6 months ago, but now I can't find where it was.

Thanks,

Ken,
Here is a link to the quickspecs:

The P3 Xeo 900Mhz (2MB cache) processor is HP# 222627-B21

As far as where to get, you will need to find a refurbed dealer. I have used a company by the name of ChestnutMicro out of Dallas (www.chestnutmicro.com) with much success.

Call and speak to KT and tell him what you are looking for.

P.s. please be kind and assign points to those that help you out.

Just a quick check on eBay and I produced a bunch of results, one of which is a set of 4 from a ML350 for $150. Item number: 270116334168, End time: May-06-07 10:49:54 PDT.
Remember these cpus have no demand right now and should be cheap.
