How would processor performace compare assuming the harddrives were the same and the amount of ram was the same? For example, how would a system with older dual xeon 2.4 or 2.8 cpus compare to Intel Core2 Duo E4300 socket 775, 2x 1.8Ghz/1M L2 system?
I am guessing that the Intel Core2 Duo would win, but by how much? I am sure this is hard to compare since ram speeds are different as well, but hopefully someone can make an estimate.
There are a lot of changes in the naming convention Duo Core Quad Core, Core2Dual, Core2Quad. I wonder for Dual Core Xeon 3Ghz (which we called previously) would would be its equivalent or better now than is easily found on the market?
Does anyone have an opinion on the Intel Dual Xeon Quad Core Clovertown versus the AMD Dual Core Dual Opteron? I'm assuming the Xeon is better. I recently put in an order for one, and I'm hoping I made the right decision (Yes I know it would have made more sense to ask before ordering but that's not how I roll) .
I'm trying to figure out for sure which is best. Which would you do? The second is a bit older technology, I guess, but it seems to me that two discreet older Xeons would be better than one dual core newer Xeon.

different speed between Quadcore Q6600 2.4Ghz and Xeon 3060 Dual core 2.4Ghz? Typically i can tell the Q6600 is faster than Xeon 3060 but i am not sure which one is faster and more stable for dedicated server.
Our website/forum curently on Intel P4 2.8Ghz with 2GB RAM( cPanel) server @ TP. $120/Mon mostly for php forum usage and a bit heavy load with Karaoke database from our members share via forum. Play online/ Download. Daily visitors: 500 around
Recently I saw this deal @ TP. But 'm confusing..because our budget is kinda low.. Please help us with some suggestion. Should we upgrade to this Dual Xeon? Is it really a good deal?
Intel Dual Xeon 2.8 - IDE 2x80GB SATA Hard Drives 2048MB RAM 2500GB Bandwidth NOW ONLY $147/mo with cPanel which is $172/month.
how to get the best "bang for my buck" for a dedicated server; I don't have specific requirements, just have training videos (flash) to play on the site, traffic isn't high now but I want to be ready...
Looking at ThePlanet as an example, what do the choices mean:
1) Xeon 3060, vs Dual Xeon, vs Pentium 4
2) IDE Drive, vs SCSI, vs SATA drive
I know I want 2-4 GB Ram, but beyond that, I don't know what components matter and are worth paying for.
