That's the processor I'm thinking about getting for a home server / development machine. Going for $80 as intel motherboard + dual core processor combo is a really tempting deal.
What I'm planning to do is ethernet/wifi sharing, rails development and some minor other tasks. Would this be a good choice as a platform to run XEN on? It doesn't support VT, but I'm not planning on using an OS that depends on it to run on XEN.
My question is, would this processor be capable as a light server machine to run XEN and aforementioned services. How powerful exactly are these little boys are?
If you have one, what's your experiences? If you don't, would you get this or search for some more powerful options (possibly Phenom X3?)
