I usually get loads of good help from this list, so here's an
We've got a client who needs us to select a server for him; he'll buy it
and we'll colo it for him.
In the past we've had a lot of success with what has now evolved to a
server with a 3.4GHz Intel D 945 processor.
But one of the people in a local club I belong to is recommending a
similar server (and similarly priced) with an Intel Core™2
Duo E6300 1.86GHz processor.
