My System Specs

Default Quick Operating System Question

Hey guys,

Quick question about Operating Systems for folding. Would I be able to run 32 bit WinXP Pro/Home with the Notfred (or whatever the other one is) VM and utilize all 8 cores of an i7?
I'm sure windows reporting on the CPU temp would only be the first processor (#0) - just wondering if I can run a base 32 bit OS (since I have a few legit copies lying around)

That, and I want to put 3x EVGA 260s in it. I'm guessing WinXP would handle that ok?


I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
