I'm building my new system with:

Phenom 9950 Black Edition
MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum mobo
2 x 2GB DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
2 x EVGA nVidia 9800 GT

I've seen various posts here about people having difficulty with XP 64 and MSI mobos. I'd love to run the 64 version, but I don't want to back myself into a corner with this.

Any advice out there?

You will be just fine. You can download the latest drivers for server 2003 x64 off AMD website. XP X64 and server 2003 x64 are one in the same. I prefer my xp x64 over my vista x64 20 to 1 my self.

Excellent. Thanks, Adam. I will be reporting back shortly on my progress.

BTW, I will be building yet another system some time in early 2009 as the new FX chips come out. Although, I'm a bit concerned about the support and availability for AM3 sockets, as they are probably doomed to disappear soon after appearing.

Thanks again.
