    Dual 5310 versus Single 5320

    Which would be a better setup in the real world.

    Single 5320 $x

    Dual 5310 $x + $20 / month

    Will the Dual be worth the extra $20 / month? Yes it's a good deal but will there be a real world difference?

    Oh yes.


    8 (x) 1.6GHz

    4 (x) 1.86GHz


    The 8 cores will help you a lot, but only buy the dual proc if you'll use it.

    Do you need 8 cores ? If you will never use 8 cores then save $20 and get a better CPU. If you see yourself needing 8 cores go with the 8 cores for $20 more.

    Will run Cent OS 64 bit. Is that enough to go with Dual? Still cannot decide!

    What's your current usage on your server? Do you expect to use 8 cores? It's *really* hard to use 8 cores.

    Current usage is not that high with our single mid-level Dual core now. That was what I was wondering. Maybe a single 5320 is better than dual 5310 and just save the $20?

    Save yourself the $20, if later down the road you need 8 cores the provider can just swap the CPU out for the Dual 5310. They are on the same mobo anyways.

    Right, good point about the same motherboard issue!
