Which would make the best cpu for a server, serving as Server 2008 R2 domain controller and hyper-v for 3 virtuals with these roles:
1. Windows Distribution services (Server 2008)
2. web server (Linux)
3. MySQL (Linux)
The choices are:
1. dual core with 1MB L2 cache and 6MB L3 cache
2. quad core with 1MB L2 cache and no L3 cache
This is a personal machine with only one user for experimental code development and a learning experience. Currently, I have an Athlon X2 6400+ as the cpu and am looking at upgrades. I have 6GB of DDR2-800 memory. I likely will move to an AM2+ board and reuse the existing memory.
