Performance Question

Alright, this is probably a silly question, but I do not necessarily know the answer.  

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 (yes, ancient, I know) with 2 E5405 Intel Xeon Processors (2 ghz) and 12 GB of RAM running Windows 2012 R2.  

I also have a Dell Optiplex 330 (obviously, it, too is ancient) with a Core2 Quad Q9550 (2.83 ghz) processor and 8 GB of RAM running Windows 7 64-bit.  

I need to stream video with one of these two machines.  Which one is better?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Optiplex ... processor is better, RAM is cheaper, can be upgraded with graphics cards.
