    Memory and CPU speed. I don't think any of those servers are multi-threaded, but I could be wrong.

    The best way to figure it out for your needs, though, is just to work backwards from the slowest component on a server(the HDD) and work up to the fastest(the memory) and decide where you want to spend the money.

    You don't want Pentium D. You want the Core 2 Duo CPU or Xeon 3000 series (they are actually the same exact chip). Pentium D is runs very hot and has very poor performance compared to Core 2 Duo.
