Neither.

If you can afford the Opteron, then you might as well get the Intel Xeon 5130 "Woodcrest" http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819117085

The Xeon 5130 is based on the Core 2 architecture (same as Conroe). If you don't know already, Core 2 is simply amazing. It blows everything out of the water. It will last a long time, and will be an awesome processor.

This is for a dedicated server, so if you know a dedicated server that is providing cpanel/whm/fantastico/rvskins/whmextra/whm reseller 2000 GB bandwidth 100mb/ps port for around $230 a month let me know.


Basically I am running vbulletin forums mainly, and have lots of people on the site, so if that helps in choosing which one would be better, let me know.

Thanks

My apologies. I thought you were building a dedicated box.

In that case, do you know anything more about the systems? If they are roughly the same, I would go with the Opty 170 box.

http://beachcomber.net/Dedicated-Dual-Core.shtml It's the one that is $239.99 a month but will be $229.99 a month after the discount.


They both are the same except for


AMD Opteron 170

Dual Core

(1mb Cache per core)

or

Dual Core 930 D
3.0Ghz
(2mb SuperFast Cache per core)


Why would you choose the Opty 170 box over the other one? (More info the better i suppose lol)

Thanks

What about the difference with the (1mb Cache per core) for the opty and 2mb for the other one.

Or is the opty cache better built or is it not much difference in that part of the specs.

It is much more efficient. ESPECIALLY in server environments, since that is what it was made for. The Pentium D is not a server processor. Quoting you, the Pentium D is, and always will be, the "other one".
