That would be really nice, I think it load balances fairly well from what I have heard.

I still don't know what OS. I have a "trial" copy of vista ultimate 32 bit, but it will not support all my ram. I felt like buying 64 bit ultimate OEM, however it's expensive and Vista does not support my sound card.

I may just install XP 64bit.

Hopefully, you'll get the g0 stepping which is new, and supposedly runs cooler, than the earlier B3 stepping. its hit and miss which one your going to get at the moment.

Either way, you should be able to overclock quite well.

Friend managed to find a "very low cost" version of 64 bit Ultimate which should work.

I'll just go pickup a new soundcard for 150$ for my new rig.

Would a quad work on a standard 32bit Windows XP? I'm guessing it would...

Plus, is it possible to share cores with different programs, so that one processor doesn't run for example 4 programs you have running? I'm guessing Windows would sort this out mostly on its own.

just set affinity in the task manager. And yes, Windows XP supports only 1 socket processors, no matter how many cores on it.
