Hi all I have just got a second hand server its an AMD optiron 2.1 quad core and I want to know if its better than the pc I currently use is an AMD athlon 64 x2 dual core at 2.6.

Now I know ARMA2 server dont make use of more then one core (Boooooo) so I am still thinking the higher clock speed of my old one would be better but I dont know for sure.

Any ideas.

P.S

This is assuming every thing is the same eg same amount of ram etc etc I just want to know about the CPU`s.

Thanks

bumpy bump bump.

Any one please I think I know he answer but I would like some one that may have a pc along the same lines.

I wonder if the extra cach on the quad core would help more?.

doesn't sound like either one is going to be strong enough to run some of the larger and more resource hungry missions...but if youre going to run smaller type missions then i guess it's ok...but regardless, at this point id probably just go with the Quad core...its already been proven to run the game better than dual cores.
