This is just something I've been pondering and I haven't ASKED a non-admin question in 4 years.
- So it's my turn. . [I hope my pleasant nature hasn't pissed EVERYONE off....]

I have need of PCI-X (PCI-X, not PCI-E) slots for a variety of systems.
I prefer USB2 without using a card and Intel CPU's - WITH PINS!
That pretty much leaves my choices as P4 socket 478 and Xeon socket 604.
- Comparable chipset.
- Same FSB speed.
- Same CPU cache and Frequency.
- A single CPU configuration. [ONE CPU]
- Single core CPUs.
- Same amount/type of memory.
In other words the only significant difference is P4 vs Xeon....

What are the pros and cons of using one vs the other?

Xeon is better at .....
P4 is better at ....

Is there even any difference?
