    The one with RAID1, duh!

    The dual e5560 will blow the i7 away with performance though.

    I could care less about the processor, a server with a Raid system is definitely a lot better than 1 which is without. LOL.

    I would go for the one with HW raid. - Dedicated & virtual servers - Colocation

    Month-to-month contract - No setup fees - High quality servers and network

    The first one should do the job just fine, the advantage is the RAID1.
    The second server is faster, CPU-wise, you can always upgrade to that one once the current server can't handle it anymore. - Online in no time
