Which Server to go with?
Posted on 2006-10-31
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?
