Intel Core 2 Duo or Intel Dual Xeon?
Which is better, the Xeon or the Core 2 Duo. I had a Core 2 Duo E7200 (originally 2.53GHz) but the whole computer fried and I lost the motherboard and cpu (possibly more too) so I thought that I would just buy a cheapish PC off ebay and upgrade it a little, or buy a new motherboard for my custom build and get a Xeon. I found a Dell Precision 530 with a 2.8GHz Dual Xeon, so how would that compare to my Core 2 Duo? thanks.
