Yes, but it's not the best choice.

And you can use multiple video cards together to share the rendering load on a single screen.

For ATI this technology is called Crossfire and for Nvidia it's called SLI.

Finally, EDIT YOUR FREAKING POSTS instead of double posting...

Why just one card when you can have two for an amazing price? They work together to own everything out. In the general opinion around these forums, and pretty much everywhere else, ATI has taken this round. Technically, for pure performance (not factoring in price) the Nvidia GTX280 is the fastest but that doesn't make it worth it. Get 2 4870's, or a 4870 X2 when it comes out and you will have amazing performance for a much better price.

Listen to Vernong and Aspire, they know what they are talking about. Both the builds they have given you are awesome rigs. Trust them

Get Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I have the system builders one, its the OEM version basically. It is the same exact software just you don't get tech support but who needs that.

Vista is just newer, its a better OS now. I'm sure some programs perform better in Vista now that they are being tested on it. Basic is more for the internet surfing, emailing, person, its self explanatory, its basic. Premium will have all of the features you will want most likely. It has the media center stuff and a whole bunch of other things that I can't exactly name off the top of my head.

64-bit will fully support that 4 gigs of ram. If you have 32 bit, you won't be able to utilize all of your ram.
