Multi-processor Edit Suite Help

Hi all,

Well it's time to put my intel BadAxeII edit suite to rest. It's great for SD but just can't deal with multiple tracks of HD video.

I would like to put together a dual or quad cpu system (for a total of 8 - 16 cores) with the option of running dual Nvidia cards in SLI. It will be a windows XP / 7 system that I want to be able to do a dual boot Win/Mac setup (i.e. hackintosh). I use CS4 on the pc side of things and Final Cut Pro on the hackintosh side in my curent setup.

I am basically looking to build an HD video crunching edit suite that will let me work on multiple layers of HD footage in real time! I have a raid subsystem setup and waiting for the right cpu, video and motherboard combination. I'm trying to do this on the cheap otherwise I'd go out and buy a mac server.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
