It probably doesn't matter. Either is fine. However, there isn't enough information in your original question to help make a recommendation. – ewwhite Jul 22 '12 at 15:27

The question is too open. The answer heavily depends on what you are doing. Just telling us which programs you are going to use is not enough.

E.g. mostly static pages with a few simple fields read from the SQL server would not require much. Which makes the cheapest CPU the best. Extensive joins or complex operations might be CPU bound. Serving lots of [large] files might be IO bound.

Given your focus on the CPU's I suspect that you already thought about it and that it will be CPU bound. It might be nice to expand on that part in your question.
