RAM: 4 x 1GB Micron Reg ECC
HDD1: WD1500ADFD

"Videocard: Asus 7900GT (does it have dual-link DVI-D?) "

Yes, it does....

I believe dual DVI type card is required, in fact, to run even a single Dell 3007 monitor at 2560x1600 res....

Does Asus 7900GT have both DVI connectors dual-link or only one?

I need one dual-link and another can be single-link (I think 2001FP needs single-link anyway), but if both are dual-link - its a bonus, as I might upgrade 2001FP for the second 3007WFP or 2407WFP.

Hey 486! I am looking at getting the SuperMicro H8DCE as an upgrade from my Tyan S2885 (and AGP board) and am reaching out for any advice, input, opinions, and thoughts about the H8DCE. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
