    I'm intending to study my MCSE through self study, so had a couple of questions...

    1) Is it wise to study this through a virtual network as I really dont have the space for a physical network.

    2) Would this machine be good enough to run 5-6 virtual machines off?

    1) Yes :)

    2) Yes :D

    One point to note is that as it comes without an Operating system, I'd install a 64bit version of Vista to use that 4GB of memory. A 32bit version can only address roughly 3GB. Have fun

    The problem with installing Vista is that it's a bit of a resource hog. I would if you can either get a copy of XP 64 bit or install Linux 64 bit and run Virtual Box or VMWare on it.
