I'm thinking about a couple of different deals, and as I'm not a hardware expert I wondered if anyone could help me out with this.

500 GB SATA 7200 133 RPM
Server 2 (the cheapest):
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Dual Core
6 GB DDR2 RAM
2 x 750 GB SATA II
Server 3 (medium price):
Core™2Duo 2x2,0 GHz
3 GB DDR2 RAM
2x320 GB SATA

That Core2Duo on 2GHz would be faster than the AMD in 95% of the benchmarks/tasks you run on it.
