I am busy to configure the components for a new high-end graphic werkstation. The main application will be Adobe PhotoShop CS2, and a little Frontpage and Flash for webdesign. For the most choices I have already made a decision. Such as the graphic adapter and the HD-configuration. I am going to use a version of Microsoft's Windows XP x64-bits. In my opininion, for what is worth Vista gives to much incompatiblesproblems.
But not for the motherboard, i.c. the CPU. I am sure about the brand, Intel. But not for the type, I reduce the question to two types:
1. An Intel D975XBX2 with one Core 2 Extreme QX6800, with 8 Gb RAM or,
2. An Intel S5000XVNSATA with two Xeon 5355, with the possiblity to go up to 16 Gb RAM.
Have anyone an answer to the question if PhotoShop CS2 can use two CPU's?
What choice will result in the fastested system?
