Which should I choose
I have a Q. for you Guys.
Will Dual Xeon 2.8 GHz w/HT be better than Pentium 4 3.4GHZ DUAL CORE everything else being same.
Surely, Pentium4 3.4 GHZ DUAL CORE will be better because it has better productivity.
In technical terms (assuming Linux), the Xeon will act as if it were 2x Xeon 2.8Ghz CPUs whereas the P4 will act as if it were 2x 3.4Ghz CPUs. Therefore the P4 would be better.
Depends on price. But no doubt, I will hands down choose the Xeon, and because the Xeon has more cache.
I wouldn't pick either one: either go for woodcrest or get an opteron.
Thank You all for your comments, I will go with Pentium 4 3.4GHZ DUAL CORE as this one has more cache.
Pincy, does the xeon have 2 physical processors? If so, it will act like 4 due to the HT. I would definetely choose the xeon if this were the case.
Yes it has 2 physical processors, so I am confused now, I should go with Xeon?
2 Physical xeon processors both with HT will perform better than a single P4 W/ dual core. What are the prices for these two servers?

If the price difference isn't huge, the Xeon is what to go for
Thank You all, I went with Dual Xeon as price difference was minimal.
