A friend of mine is starting a Grand theft auto: San andreas server, and there are two hosts that we can choose from.
Either:
Linux, Intel Core2Quad Q9450 12Mb Cache, 8Gb Ram DDR2
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=33923&processor=Q9450&spec-codes=SLAWR
or:
Linux, AMD Phenom II QuadCore 955 8Mb Cache, 8Gb Ram DDR2
http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/processors/phenom-ii/Pages/phenom-ii-model-number-comparison.aspx

Any Ideas on which one is better?

if he's going to buy a $1000.00+ server tower, to host a grand theft auto san andreas server.... tell him I've got snake oil that cures cancer.

Look at this realistically, say the server tower costs $1500, which is still really low for a new server tower.. He's not going to want to host it for the rest of his life, and he's probably not going to need it for anything in the future (with those specs).

He'll lose interest after a year, and be stuck with a 1500+ dollar server tower that he bought to host an almost 10 year old game on.

Now the flip side..

Hosting for a decent server costs roughly 20-50 dollars a month.. Let's use the 50 dollars a month package for this example..

Let's also use the 1 year "I wanna host this server" thought. 1 year = 12 months, 12 x $50 = 600 dollars.

Either your friend has too much money, or not enough brain cells.

I know that hosting a server is difficult! He has enough money, but That still doesnt answer my question of which one is better...

I'm not even going to answer it because it's stupid to buy a new server tower if you're just going to run a san andreas server on it. That'd be like me buying a server tower to run only a Terraria server on.

If I didn't buy all my computer stuff already, I would have bought that stuff from David. The processor alone is worth that price!
