  • 1 proc dual core or 2 proc one core?

    I need to upgrade from my server (one proc. one core piv 3.6 ) to a new.

    That it is better?, one server with one procesor dual core (Single Intel Woodcrest 5130 Dual Core) or with two procesors one core (Intel Dual Xeon 3.2GHz Processor) ?

    I have only one page with vBulletin with about 10.000 users.

    PD: Sorry for my english

    I don't think a dedicated server is needed for only 10,000 users I have owned and see other forums running on shared environments supporting 10,000 users unless you truely beleive it is needed.

    I would personally go for dual core, but it comes down to a lot of things like RAM, etc..

      We have a lot of proc uses to resizing photos, etc., and a lot of BD queries, we have more than 10.000 visits by day with average of 250 users online, posting, searching, uploading photos (resizing, create thumb, etc.).

      The server have 2GB of Ram, and 2 sata HD

        You're not comparing apples to apples with those two systems. The Core-based 5130 is going to stomp the Netburst-based 3.2GHz processors (the architecture for which is going on 8 years old).
