    That's a pretty blanket statement. It depends on the processor speed and RAM. An opteron 2.0 with 1GB RAM won't hold a candle to a Woodcrest 2.3 w/4 GB RAM. It all depends on the exact setup. However, if you are looking at Dempsey vs. Woodcrest and they both have the same speed, then the Woodcrest is better. It has a faster FSB.

    even a single Woodcrest 5130 will be better than a Dual Opteron 250 or a single Opteron 170

    a single woodcrest 5130 is about 35% faster than a single Opteron 170.

    I wouldn't pay more than 35% more for it, unless you have other differentiating factors.

    most places are within that price structure, and when you consider the 170 is 2x1mb cache and the woodcrest is 1x4mb , its even better :-)
