    openSuse 10.3 or more. It will be used for vmware, web and file
    I need compatibility informations about this new configuration i'm
    making :
    What do you think about this configuration ? This will work ?
    The power supply is correct for the motherboard ?

    Power supply = 24 + 8 power connectors (on W0116)
    Motherboard = 24 + 8 + 4 power connectors

    The power supply lacks an additional 4 pin (2x2) power connector.

    Something like this might work. 24 + 8 + 4, 6 SATA, 8 Molex, 1 Floppy, 4 PCI Express

    For the memory configuration, there are a couple options of interest.
    First of all, installing two DIMMs on a processor, can result in dual
    channel operation on that processor. Second, there are a couple
    installation options. You can put equal memory on each processor
    (4x1GB, two sticks per processor), or you could install 2x2GB on
    one processor, and zero memory on the other processor. This article,
    while a bit old, should still provide some comments on the subject.

    You can use a cheap adapter Molex -> 4 PIN ( +12V/GND ) if you already
    bought the PSU and didn't care about the connectors :-(
