Ram: 4 GB DDR3 Registered 1333
Operating System: CentOS 5 (64 bit),

sounds like you are getting a downgrade not an upgrade.

Stick with the xeon.

Yup, I'd stick with the quad core all the way with those specs. I'm running a dual quad core machine myself and it's very nice :)

If there's a big price difference and you're just cutting costs the spec on the dual core isn't bad, but 40K visitors/day should have dual quads IMO just to remain snappy.

That old server shouldn't even breath hard with that load. At best you should look at more RAM, you appear to have enough CPU power.

Hi Guys, Thanks for the suggestions. I've to do Cost-cut and meet with similar server performance.

instead of Intel i3 - Dual Core - 3.06Ghz H/T can i go with Core 2 Quad 2.66GHz ?
