Proliant 1600R 6/550 Non Compaq CPU Question

I have a single 550 PIII Processor in my 1600R and was considering buying another PIII 550. I saw that a Compaq Certified PIII550 was 500 dollars. I can pick up a PIII 100FSB 512 cache processor for 75 bucks. BIG DIFFERENCE.... I just wanted to see if this 75 dollar processor would work?

Thanks for your help
Mike

It will work. You will more than likely receive a message that the performance might degrade to the lesser of the two processors, because it will recognize that they are both not exactly the same. (O/S message)
