Never know until you try but if it has two CPUs then only one will be detected.

I am a hardware guy not a software guy but i try to help.

"if it has two CPUs then only one will be detected"

Wrong, it depends on the OS. XP Pro supports 2, Win 7 Pro (or better) supports 2, Windows Serever supports 4, 8, 32, or 64, depending on the version.
