    I just purchased a new Dell Four core processor with 4GB RAM and a high end graphics card to run Vista. I should get it next week. I also intend to dual-boot the computer to also run Windows 2003 server.

    Wow, dual boot sounds exciting.

    got to have the biggest toy on the block

    Instead of dual-booting have you thought about virtualizing one server using VMWare/Virtual Server? I use VMWare on a linux box at home to develop against SQL servers running...

    Makes life much easier and if you've got quad dual-cores coming, you'll have pleeeeenty of horsepower for virtualization to perform well.

[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-2.gif' alt=':D' />] Those disks gotta be sucking up a lotta juice monthly.<br /><br />I remember when our engineers were all excited seeing big servers for sale on eBay. I remember them saying "Hey, I'll buy this big old quad-cpu box and put in at home, it'll be killer!" until I pointed out the dual 1500w power supplies. They got a little less happy then... [^]
