I'm trying to decide on a CPU for web servers. Do I go with the slightly higher GHz on the 4 core or just more cores? All these servers are doing is IIS in a clustered config.
I've also been looking at this which may be the best bang for the buck. Slower, but still 6 cores and 12 threads. The X5600 series may be overkill for web servers.

If anyone has any bench marks that would be great, or just your own experience. Thanks!
