I'm thinking about renting a gaming server to go along with the one I built. I can get:

Dual Core Dual Xeon 5050, Dempsey 4x2mb Cache, 4 x 3.0Ghz Processors w/HT.


Dual Core Dual Xeon 5130, Woodcrest 4x2mb Cache, 4 x 2.0Ghz Processors.

Which is better? I hear great stuff about the woodcrests, but its a full 1ghz less on each core. What do you guys think?

Woodcrest. No contest.

The 2Ghz Woodcrest processor will almost outperform the 5050 by a factor of two in many server apps.
