Hey guys really been appreciating the help lately!

Any way just put together a new pc and wanted to get the most out of it...

Case: Cooler master with room for HUGE GFX cards.
CPU: XEON 3440 stock speed 65*C may need thermal paste/cooler...
Ram: 8 GB DDR3 from G. Skill
MB: GB P55-UD4 w/ 2 PCI-e slots
VGA: ATI 5770
OS: Vista 32bit currently - have windows 7 64 bit ready to switch over

Right now I'm running 3 Linux VM wares which runs 75% of my CPU power and 80% of my available 3.5 GB ram (wanted some left over for browsing)
Just wanted to get the most of my system. PSU is a Rosewill 1000w BTW :p

Get VMware Player 3.0.0 and run one 8 core VM. You'll need about 1200 MB of ram to run normal a2 WUs. If you really want the most out of it, run -bigadv WUs, after you get a decent HSF.
