Hi. I'm building a new computer and have a question about how ardour runs with processors. If a had two processors, would ardour recognize them both and split the tasks, or am I better off with one larger processor?

Two is better than one. Ardour will not split the "DSP" (actual audio signal processing) between processors, but it will split up this and disk I/O, the GUI, MIDI I/O, an other tasks.
