    Need help with new server.

    I currently have a server that runs intensive Java and a MySQL databases. Server specs are:
    Dual Xeon with HT 2.67GHz (non EMT64)
    2GB of DDR reg ecc (PC2100)
    2 SATAII hard drives
    32bit Windows 2003 server
    Average CPU usage 15-50%
    Average Memory usage 1.5gigs, 1.5gig page file.

    System I am looking to get:
    Dual Opteron or dual core opteron (2.2GHz)
    4GB of DDR reg ecc (PC3200)
    2 SATAII drives (or maybe 2 raptors)
    64bit Windows 2003 server
    Will be going with Softlayer.

    Question is, will the dual opteron be worth the upgrade in terms of performance? Its nice have the 4 threads on the Xeon but the Opterons should still perform better. Also, would I get a noticalbe boost in Java and MySQL performance in 64bit over 32bit?

    Be sure this,

    MYSQL and PHP applications run BETTER than Pentium on AMD (on Opteron 242 or better CPUs)
    These were tested on too many web pages before.

    The server will be more intensive in the Java and MySQL area doing around 50-150 queries per second. Would using 64bit version of windows 2003 run them with a noticable increase in performance?

    Since i couldnt edit my first post i had to make another. I just saw i could get a Dual Xeon dual core with HT for around the same price, so in the end having 8 threads instead of the 2 from AMD, or would the AMD setup still out perform it?
