DL380 G5 - Dual Quad & WS2003 SE

Awaiting 3 new G5 performance servers, they are onfigured with 4GB memory and Dual Processors (Quad Core), will 'Windows Server 2003' Standard Edition work in this configuration ?? Or will I need the Enterprise edition to be able to utilize both Quad processors ??

Thx

Windows Server 2003 Standard supports up to 4 processors. Windows Server 2003 enterprise edition supports up to 8 processors.

In your situation 2 x Quad-core processors will make it 8 processors, I'd say, go for Enterprise edition.

Here is link from Microsoft with the Hardware requirements:
