    The Core2Quad is a desktop CPU, but the benchmarks comparing it vs. the Xeon are well enough in favor of the Q9550. Q9550 for sure in this case.

    Q9550 is best choice

    I really don't think a Core Quad beats a Xeon. Xeons will support much more tasks/high loads in a server enviroment.

    In a common linux box, you can bring a QC Xeon to load avg of 50 with no problems, while a Core Quad will stop working at 10-15.

    Please explain how it will handle more tasks and high loads...

    btw Q9550 all day long.

    This is based in our experience. I don't know technically how the CPU structure does this.

    What I can say is that Xeon QC handles much more. BTW, if you ask me about an old Xeon, then yes, a Q9550 would be better.

    A question for you experienced people. Since your talking about load of 50 I am guessing its common for servers to be under EXTREME load? I have a dual core server and I worry if it hits 2 load

    IMHO it's a very very personal thing. Each company/individual has a different plan/opinion about load average.

    There are companies who push the maximum out of a server (it may result in HDD crashes and other performance problems as well)

    There are companies who control the load avg, hiring more servers when it reaches some considerable value (google, for instance... they have lots of non-expensive servers.. I said lots )

    And some companies who hire powerful servers and push some CPU till a reasonable limit. This may be worthy, all depends on the company, the use for the server, etc.... Very personal thing

    There is no maximum load-average.. It's not a general rule.. Each processor, each use has a maximum value..

    Obviously a Quad Core Xeon can push a higher load than a Dual Core or a normal Quad Core. Xeon have better queueing/caching strategies, as it's made for a more intensive enviroment.

    Core2 Quad is also a good processor, I like it. But my vote is for a QC Xeon

    Q9550 for game servers, that much I can vouch for, but I do like your guys reasoning behind the Xeon, nice information
