Default I need your professional opinion

I am setting up a web server and am not sure which one would be the best so your thoughts and experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Server 1
Core 2 Quad Q6600
- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
- Supermicro X7SBE
- 4 GB
- 250 GB SATA II

Server 2
Dual Xeon Professional
- Intel Xeon 3.0 GHz (w/HTT)
- Intel Xeon 3.0 GHz (w/HTT)
- Supermicro X6DVL-EG2
- 4 GB
- 250 GB SATA II

Both servers after my coupon will cost just about the same with only a few dollars difference.

For a web hosting environment which server would you choose? This question is based on performance would one be better than the other?

Thanks.

Server 1. With a quad-core you can create virtual servers/clusters to improve efficiency.

Thanks for the help after all I ended up with another choice.

@jervin32189 I was looking at dedicated servers from a company and finally opted for the one below the costs are $199 per month

Dell DQC
2 x Intel Xeon 5320
2 GB RAM
1 x 500 GB SATA II HD

I will be updating the RAM to 4GB

I think we need to know what kind of Xeons these are before we make a decision.
