How does XP run with the six cores. Does it ignore five of them?

All XP versions will run as many cores as you have, if you use more than one physical CPU I believe you need to get the enterprise version.

One core limitation is for 98, XP can use up to 32 cores.

Socket 775 - ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA, Pentium E6500K, 4GB RAM, Radeon 9500@9700, ESS Solo-1, Win 98/XP
Socket A - ASRock K7S41GX, AMD Athlon XP 3000+, 512MB RAM, GeForce4 Ti4200, SB Live, Win 98

And on the topic does XP ignore 8gb out of 12gb of ram then? Or does the 12gb of ram cause problems for XP?

It's the same, like with 98 and multi core CPUs. XP just ignores anything above 4GB. I have dualboot XP/7 on my laptop with 12GB of RAM, and XP just see and can use only 4GB. There's no problems with excess amount of RAM in XP.

It sees all 6 cores and 12 threads

As for ram, xp only sees 2gb's while 7 sees all 12gb's

Have you had any compatibility issues with early 2000s games?

Only game so far was Planet of the Apes 2001, graphic issues.

That game runs fine on my 98 rig.

I threw a USB 3 card in here and took out the wifi card as it didn't support XP so I'm just using a USB one now. Now the front panel usb ports run at USB 3 speeds. Also threw quite a few more games on XP and 7.
