    Which servers would you go with?

    I run a network of proxies that are quickly outgrowing their hosting situation..

    I have the option of buying (for a similar price)

    Slightly Cheaper Option 1:
    ONE AMD Dual Core Dual Opteron 865 - 8 x 1.8GHz Processors - 8 x 1MB Cache with 4GB of RAM.


    Slightly More Expensive Option 2:
    TWO Intel Dual Core Dual Xeon Dempsey 5050 - 4 x 3.0GHz Processors with HT - 4 x 2MB Cache each with 2GB of RAM each.


    If you were running high traffic (10mil+ pageviews per month) proxies, which option would you go with?

    Thanks for any and all help

    Looks like they are as he later states the number of processors and says "with 2GB of RAM each."
    Back to the original post...
    I would pick the 2 dual xeon servers, more overall cpu power.

    Yes, either one server or two servers, sorry I should have clarified.

    iBold, I may have mis-read your original post. For the xeon server, are there 2cpus per server or 4 per server?

    Get the Dempseys. We've been selling the heck out of them lately; they're awesome performers.

    Definitely the 2 servers, it just helps spread the overall load around. Dempseys are pretty good, but they have nothing on the woodcrest.
