All, First, I apologize for a repost, but I am unable to find what I need so far so I am turning to you guys for some assistance. My lab wants to get a kick-ass desktop PC that can run Windows XP 64 bit edition and take advantage of as much RAM and processing power as possible for 3-D modeling. I don't have too much experience with WinXP 64 bit edition, but I am wondering if any mac pro owners out there that have an updated box w/8 cores and lots of RAM do have WinXP 64 bit edition can answer my questions: 1. What is the bootcamp experience like (with regard to drivers, etc)? 2. Can WinXP take advantage of all 8 processors? 3. Can WinXP take advantage of up to 16GB of RAM? (I think the answer is yes...) Thanks in advance for your help.
