I'm about to rent a dedicated server and have narrowed it down to the following two. They are both the same price. Which in your understanding is more powerful, faster, and efficient and hence the better choice?
Server Option One:
Processor: AMD Opteron 1216 CPU Speed: 2x2.40GHz Bus Speed: 1000MHz Cache: 2x1MB RAM: 2GB DDR2 667 ECC
Server Option Two:
Processor: Intel Xeon 3060 CPU Speed: 2x2.40GHz Bus Speed: 1066MHz Cache: 1x4MB RAM: 2GB DDR2 667 ECC
Sorry for not being specific enough. The website I'm about to launch is expected to have very high traffic, 250-300,000 in the near term. It is based on WordPress so it does use a database though all files are cached to static html pages once every hour.
As for the OS it's going to be CentOS. I have been told to go with the 32 bit version since I am getting 2GB of ram with this server. Should I really go with 64bit with only 2GB of RAM?
