    Which quad core and for what purpose?

    Unless it's a single threaded application, I would say quad core, and even if it is single-threaded, there are quad cores faster than 2.4GHz out there.

    We would need more info about that Quad-Cores processor.

    I once had a Xeon 3060 Conroe server that performed sub-par due to the SATA chipset on the motherboard not having an optimized driver (none available). Thus it's very difficult to give a recommendation without knowing all the details *AND* running some benchmarks.

    Xeon 3060 should be fine for most applications. Quad core servers usually have a slower clock rate than similarly priced dual core servers. If you're not running a lot of parallel processes, then dual core is better.

    Tip: Do "./Run 16" if your server has 8 cores.

    ... The lowest Quad it could be is a Kentsfield with 4 x 2.4GHz and 8MB cache. Which is FASTER than 2 Xeon 3060s in a multi socket system. So the Quad would win it on every task, because a single Core of the Quad > Core of the 3060
