We are planning to purchase a new Dell PE2950 Server.  My question is:

Will Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition support 2 x Intel Xeon Quad Core (X5355) Processors ?  I was under the impresssion that windows would look at this as 8 (or 16 if hyperthreading is enabled) processors.  Will we required Enterprise Edition to support this?
