    Totally depends on what you are using the server for. Eg, if you do filehosting, take 2 times the athlon 2800+, you'll have more datatraffic, but in other situations the Opteron server can be a better choice.

    Hello,

    when choosing the 2 smaller servers you will have all in all a better performance and more power.
    Best regards !

    Is that 2800 an Athlon XP or Athlon 64 first of all?

    If it is an Athlon 64 then the 2x 2800's will be better than a single processor 246.

    If your running low on power then go for a Dual Opteron 246 with 2gigs of ram.

    Yea, I would second that, a secon server on a VLAN, this way you would have one web server and one db server

    reducing point of failure - look at redundnacy factors or clustering options... makes things a bit more stable having multiple platforms instead of one
