Thanx for the input. I did not know the TPC website, that's very helpful. Ans also the Opteron option i will look at. I am convinced that you should not use that kind of " rule of thumbs" and more important, my colleague is now too...

I believe HP hasa line of servers with this chip. Very fast with Oracle. JaredFWIW I ran Kevin Closson's "silly little benchmark" on some Opteron 8218XE's and Xeon L5320's a couple months ago -- and the Opterons cleaned house. Kevin had a series about the Opterons too. I completely agree that they're very good processors.-- Jeremy Schneider Chicago, IL http://www.ardentperf.com/category/technical
