Barton3000 or P4 2.8 (800 FSB)?
I am about to order myself a dedicated server at Layeredtech and I'm hesitating between the two (Barton3000 or P4 2.8 (800 FSB)?).
Intended use: database. Many many many mysql requests.
I'm also not sure about the OS: I'm looking for stability and compatibility and need to choose between Redhat 9, Fedora Core 2, FreeBSD 4.x?
Thank you all for your help!
I would go with the P4 800FSB personally. The in and out is much quicker and there are fewer cooling issues with busy P4 chips than AMD.
News and papers have been reported that Intel has hit the heat limit/barrier problem. Their latest CPU produce very high heat.

From my personal experiences, p4's have gotten 10-15c hotter then a Athlon-XP
OS-wise I'd got for FreeBSD. A lot of my friends are having problems with managment using Redhat and Fedora. We're running FreeBSD and it's been really great.
Thank you all very much for the advice!
The 2.8E is actually pretty darn hot in comparison to other Intels. I had one hit 205 F during initial testing once (chucked that one and found better cooling next time around ).
