SQL 2008 R2 can be purchased as per CPU licensing at around $7000, to maximize the performance of the server I would like to pick the best single CPU that can get the most power before I need to add additional CPU and then pay another $7000 per CPU license. What is the best CPU that would give me the best performance and to stay under $10,000 (lic + CPU)?
