i am about to purchase a server
i have been offered 2 deals in my budget that sound good but i do not know which is the better option.
either a quad MB with 4 2.0ghz xeon processos or a dual MB with 2 3.4xeon processors
the rest should be mostly the same with
2x 36gb 15000rpm HDD
3x 72gb 15000rpm HDD
it is purley for counting millions of records on an SQL SERVER 2000 database
which would be fastest?
