I believe this is the same board on the 'Egg:

Also, do note that the 7950GX2 works a little different with the video RAM. It's not one card with 1GB, but two cards with 512MB each. Thus, this video RAM will be used in a different way than with a single card.

What is your idea about data security. I assume you don't want to have over a Terabyte of data on that thing and suddenly loose it all. How quickly you think you can fill up 2TB? I might recommend to get four 750GB drives and put them in RAID0+1 or RAID10. RAID5 could be an option also, but is not as easy to restore as RAID10 or RAID0+1 and generally has abysmal writing performance with onboard SATA controllers (although I don't know that last comment holds true for servers)
i think i would put the 6 drives i said in raid 5 i have heard great things about the raid 5 on this board

i like that board much more so i think i will go with that one

Why Two Xeon's for $2,600 when you could go for Two Core 2 Quad Extreme's for $2,000? The Extreme's probably have more pure Silicon anyway.

i wish they made a dual socket 775 board because i would probably get that instead

You find him a mobo for the two Core 2 Quads

And I dare argue that the Xeon is the better CPU anyways. Again, those things are made for stability and performance!

Objections:

You choose an Extended ATX MoBo. Get a case in which that thing actually fits (thus, a server case).

Display: why not two separate 20" monitors?

OS: It's likely better to get 64Bit, given your amount of RAM. Windows 32-bit ain't to happy addressing 4GB of RAM. Do look into availability of drivers for all your parts though (should not be a problem though).

EDIT: I'd probably still stick with the server hardware, given your goals with this. Also, you might consider getting one of the quad core Xeons for now, since you'll need to buy software, which can be pricey also.

the case i chose said it supported extended ATX
Quote:
Micro ATX, ATX, Extend ATX, BTX
i agree with you on the 64 bit OS

EDIT: the 64 bit XP is the same price

can you have only one CPU in a dual socket motherboard? or do you have to have them both filled. if you can have only one in then i might want to hold off on the second one although i am not sure that we would get the money for a second one if we don't just get both at time (church politics lol)

I would recomend that you contact the makers of the software you want to run and have then give you a guarantee that their software will run on the operating system you chose. I know that I have run into several incompatibility problems while running software under Windows XP X64 Edition even while the software is listed as supporting that version of Windows. Perhaps you should look into Windows Server 2003?

EDIT: I would go with both CPUs now. Makes life much simpler, and you dont have to worry about getting approval for the expenditure later down the road.
