If I were doing a lot of projects like these, I would definitely want something much more powerful.

I think this is more targeted towards workstation users. It'd be overkill for any server.

A P4 with Server '08 would handle this quite nicely. What Program are you using to stream the media?

Even if I got it for free...where am I going to fork all the cash for all the rest?

Oh and...8x4=32, and with HT technology, it's 64...shown in the screenshot...but please...tell me...what the fugle are you going to to with that? File transfer? Game Server? Notepad fun?

Only thing I'd see this good fur is folding@home...providing it takes all "64" cores...

Does movie editing really take advantage of the 32 multithreaded cores? (Which why I typed "64").
