    Certainly go with E3-1230v2. Its benchmark is better than E3-1240, however if you have E3-1240v2 or v3 available, definitely go with them.

    you can compare them yourself obiusly the v2 is beter is a newer processor and it has more memory banwith but if you have and aplication needing more ram them go with the package that has more ram it depends on your needs buddy

    Ok let us consider two situations,one for creating open vz vps and the other shared hosting.

  8. #8
    well for open vz you would take the one with more ram because you can create more vps or create vps with lots of ram for hosting ur ok with 16 gb of ram and the v2

    I'd recommend going with whatever you are more comfortable with. Unless the motherboard is limited to 2 memory slots you can always upgrade the memory when you need to.

    If it is limited to 2 slots then go with the E3-1240.

    If you ever want to expand beyond 32 gigabyte ram, you might want to take a look at the E5-16xx series CPU. They do not provide the speed per core like the E3 series but there are E5-16xx CPU's with more then 4 cores and the CPU supports up to 256GB ram (vs 32GB on the E3).

    Everything depends on your needs.
    RAM is a cheap resource and you can add it anytime. You will not be able to change processor anytime.

    RAM pricing does fluctuates a lot, going up & down continuously depending on supply&demand. I would not call RAM a cheap resource at this moment.
    The choice of CPU can limit the amount of RAM a server can be upgraded to. E3 XEON is limited to 32 gigabyte max, while a E5 Xeon supports up to 256GB ram (however most mainboards limit it to 128GB).

    My recommendation would be to go with the E3-1230v2

    Although the RAM is lower, you have the option to upgrade upto 32GB

    Would be worth getting a quote from your potential provider to upgrade the 1230 to 32Gb RAM first before making a decision.
