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 ;/

2 smaller vB sites
the rest are just plain sites with no databases

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
well, you could buy a set of E6300 (1066fsb) dual-core on Intel made socket 775 board w/2G DDR2-533 installed for under $500, and it's going to beat a hell out of dual Xeon 2.4 (533fsb) w/2G DDR266 RAM with half of power consumption.
thanks, this really helps me out a lot
