Dual CPU Intel P4 LGA775 Motherboard?

I have 2 IBM machines with hyperthreaded 3.2 P4's in them. I want to take both processors out of them and find a motherboard to support TWO separate processors and has decent perfomance. I would be putting this MB in another homemade PC. I tried looking everywhere but only could find Dual Xeon boards. I'm not even sure they make a normal P4 dual processor MB but if someone knows of any, I'd appreciate some feedback.

Thanks in advance.

dual cpus.

Unfortunately what you want to do is not possible. The Intel P4 chips cannot be run together. They are made to run only 1 at a time, so you will never find a motherboard to support dual P4 chips.
