Then you have also choosed the Operating System i.e. Windows 2000 .... in
facts W98 is NOT able to manage multi-CPU systems.
If W2000 would do it in a appropriate way ... ;-) ... this is questionable.
Or are you thinking to Unix / Linux OS ? ... this manages far better than
Windows either the multi-threaded applications either the PCU either all the
other resources , but as far as I know it doesn't work with Photoshop.
Also , be sure to have EXTREMELY FAST I/O System or you will have payed for
a lot of CPU power and left that money/power always waiting for the data .
I strongly prefer more balanced systems because the throughput is made by
the combination (like a matrix) of the performances and the power deployed
and not by a single element ... as the single producers desperately want
(often they succeed) to convince the market to sell their products with
extra profit (added value ?) .
my 2cents :-)
