    Probably the AMD due to the HW RAID card, but what the heck are you going to be hosting if I may be so bold as to ask?

    Do you really need that much capacity? There may be better ways to configure a proper system. Are you just maxing things out? or does it have a specific purpose?

    You have chosen two providers that serve a very specific market segment...


    Why not post the prices as well.

    I don't need huge capacity, it's just that those servers fit in my budget. And I wan't them in a Germany data center.

    I'm hosting a few flash games websites (those will consume much of the resources) and the rest (for a total of 33 websites) are just normal websites, with low traffic for now.

    The monthly prices are: Serverloft Perfect Server XL 129Euro and Hetzner Q9 - 99Euro (149euro setup fee)

    I would reccomend the Hetzner's Q9 as i prefer Intel and if your going to use the server it has more RAM as well as a RAID 5 for better write speeds. I am not a big fan of software RAID but not the worse. AS far as Hyper-Threading it makes a single processor behave like multiple logical processors allowing the processor to execute multiple threads simultaneously so you will get use out of it as a single quad core.

    I would choose the:

    Intel® Core™ i7-975 Quadcore
    incl. Hyper-Threading Technology
    RAM 12 GB DDR3 RAM
    Hard disk 3 x 1500 GB SATA-II HDD (Software-RAID 5)

    It has hyper-threading and more RAM.
