    Pentium D 945 vs Core 2 Duo E6300

    Building a mid-tower server to be colocated in L.A.

    Need to know which CPU you would choose out of:

    Intel Pentium D 945 Presler 3.4GHz 2 x 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz 2M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor

    OR would you choose something different out of the Presler / Conroe CPUs? I'm on a budget ;/

    Server uses:

    1 larger vB site (million posts a year on avg)
    2 smaller vB sites
    the rest are just plain sites with no databases

    Future use:
    A large Wiki site

    I myself was asking the same question.

    But I decided ebay was the best option, i was looking at Pentium D's

    Just pick up a dual xeon 2.4 with 2gb ram on ebay for $600 cant go wrong
