  1. Out of those, here's the order I would rank them in based purely on their performance on multithreaded applications:

    Dual E5520s
    i7-870
    Q9650 = X3370
    E8600
  2. Out of those, for what you are doing, get the least expensive.

    For a web server and database usage, there can be fairly high load. It all depends on what amount of usage is expected.
