You are licensed per physical socket and not by cores per cpu.

Are you planning to use a sound card in this rig? And will you ever upgrade to SLI? Because if you do upgrade to SLI and want to use a sound card in this rig, it's going to be very difficult to get the PCI sound card fit into the PCI slots that are wedged between the two PCI express 16x slots.

Not a major deal, but something you just might want to consider.
Also, if you're not going to USE SLI, then don't bother with the ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe as it's a MOBO that has been designed specifically for that use. Don't get me wrong it can be used without SLI, but why spend an extra $75 to $100 dollars?
And I am going to see how I like it with one card and then I might add one more card if i want to.

And about windows XP, i am going to need to get professional in order run with dual core?

ok that's pretty sick BUT. why didnt they test the eVGA card against it also? maximum PC should do that VS the X1800X. since they said the benchies were only 1000 points apart? a 10 FPS difference is pretty good. also look at the test system. not many people have that.

most people don't have an FX-55 though, they should have testd it on a little above avg CPU like a San diego 3700+ or 4000+.
