I am building a new MySQL server and I have choice between these two processors:
Intel Xeon 5675
AMD Opteron 4284
I don't know which one should I choose? The load on the server will be an average of 80 millions insert/month. There is a huge difference between the price of each processor, but everything else will be the same concerning disk and ram. So I am not sure choosing for the price with AMD or will I really loose a lot of performance not going with Intel.
