can be. but as always `it depends'. the op wants to run game servers,
each to a cpu. okay that sounds fine, but what if a cpu dies, should the
associated game die too? if it's been bound to a single cpu that's what
will happen. most likely a quad cpu system running four game servers will
likely have one server per processor purely due to the normal scheduling.
(if the hardware is *then the whole system will probably die anyway so
perhaps it's not a bad thing to force the affinities.)
