I'm looking at 2 Dell servers to run SBS 2008, one has the E3-1220 and the other has the X3440 and theyre about the same price. I know the Sandy Bridge chipset is the latest and greatest but the 1220 doesnt have hyper-threading. which chip is better for SBS 2008 or SBS 2011? Any ideas?
thanks, i appreciate it, ill pitch the 1240 and if they want it cut back cost wise, ill go with the 1230. 8GB Memory (2x4GB), 1333MHz, Dual Ranked UDIMM sound ok? or would 4x2 gb sims work better? or would it matter?
