i have 2 quad q9550 i just came across with the AMD FX-4130 and just wondering how big of a difference there is ?
dedicated server with this amd cpu 16Gb ram and 2TB memory worth about 200$?

The difference in performance is very small. So keep your Core 2 quad or upgrade to something better like the FX 6300.

The FX4130 is slightly better but you'll need a new mobo. It's not worth the switch.

If you are looking at an upgrade, forget AMD. Period. They don't offer anything, in 2014, much better than Intel's Core 2 Quads from 2008.

Get an Intel i5, or even i3 based system. Pair it with a cheap $50 H81 motherboard, buy some DDR3 RAM, reinstall Windows, and you just majorly upgraded your system. That's what i'd do.

Hope that helps!

Yeah that's a good deal, but don't expect a whole lot of performance out of it.

FX 4130 is $80-100 new. 16GB of ram is $100-120 and 2TB HDD is $80. You still have to add cost of mobo, case and psu.

Oh yeah. The E3-1230v2 is MILES beyond the FX-4130. That CPU is essentially an Ivy Bridge i7.

The FX is about 2% better... which may not seem much of a difference, but you'll have to add other components and consider old against new technology, and new most always wins.

Find the Passmark CPU Mark number to compare CPUs

Then go with the Xeon for sure. You will need a dedicated GPU to go with it, but any PCI-E gpu will work for that.
