New computer spec

Due to continuing problems with my present setup I am about to build another one, I would like to outline my specification to see what feedback I get
I use the computer for Graphics I.E Autocad, Video editing, Photography, web camera, TV, etc the spec I have been looking at is as follows
Antec Sonata Case
AsusM3N-HT Delux motherboard
AMD Phenom Quad core 9950 processor
WD WD500AAKS Sata HDD
Blueray DVDCD
4GB DDR2 Ram
Vista Ultimate (I will dual boot this with XP Prof)
everything else I have already
I think the motherboard has onboard graphics but if not I will use an NVIDIA 800.. Graphics card

Re: New computer spec

Can your Windows applications use 4 cores simultaneously?
If not, then 2 cores are plenty.
