I am proposing a server for a customer of mine.  The OS will be Win 2K3 and the application will be using SQL Svr 2K5.   Here are the choices:

1.  Dell PowerEdge 2900 Dual Core Xeon Processor 5110 4MB Cache, 1.60GHz, 1066MHz FSB (2 Processors)

2.  Dell PowerEdge 1800 Intel Xeon Processor, 3.0GHz/2MB Cache, 800MHz FSB (2 Processors)

All of the other specs are the same:  2 GB RAM, 3 x 73GB HDD RAID 5.

Which should I go with 1 or 2?

Thanks,

I would go with the 5110, since Woodcrests are very powerful and it provides an easy upgrade path to the 5160: http://www.anandtech.com/IT/showdoc.aspx?i=2772&p=11 .  The 5110 uses less power and has a faster bus.
