Hi, I'm looking for input on this new machine. I'm not gaming, I'm trading (futures). I will run two video cards to power 4 22" monitors, so I'll get two of the video cards. I think I'll get two of the hard drives and set it up as RAID 1. I'll be running xp for now, looking to upgrade when all the apps that I'll use are compliant.
I would appreciate input!

XW series is being fazed out soon for the new Z series (Z800). I have clients running XW 8400s with Dual Xeons and 4 gigs of RAM... REALLY fast!
Xeons have huge caches that are good for most finanial apps.
I'm thinking 6 gigs memory because I'm assuming that Ninja will upgrade to Vista/Windows 7 and then I'll have a decent amount and could also add more.
Additionally, with XP I can utilize 4 gigs and my understanding is that with this mobo/memory it needs to be installed in 3s...3 gigs/6gigs etc....is this not the case? So, if I have 6gigs, XP should be able to use 4 of them.
