I'm a bit of an IT noob, and i'm wondering if the following machine would be able to handle dual-boxing?
Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm especially wondering if i should switch to the Geforece 8800 GT, but as i've read a lot of problems with Eve and Graphical cards and they say the 8800 GT will be quite hot on it's own, i decided against it.

More than enough.

You'll probably need/want to run one client Premium (the other Classic), or both Classic. But other than that.

My machine is fairly similar to yours.

most notable difference: my videocard is a OCZ geforce 8800 GTX, and I don't have raid.

I can run 2 clients with premium graphics (every thing turned on) without much problems on a 1600*1024 resolution

my system:
corsair HX 620 watt power supply
antec B180 case <= quiet!
some nice ASUS motherboard with lots of letters and numbers in the type
core2duo 6700 processor
2GB DDR 800 RAM
geforce 8800 GTX
vista home premium <= really happy with it, best operating system ever for a lazy computer n00b like me
320 GB S-Ata harddrive.

so far this pc has run everything I've thrown at it smooth as silk. (the witcher, world in conflict, double trinity eve client)

Yeah, I give a supporting vote to the Antec cases. Had three now and they are v.quiet.
