I am again trying to find the best horse for VT, I do not have good experience with AMD (personal heater), that is why I am thinking about the Intel...

Could anybody show me the way or just tell me own experience and workstation's configuration...

Thank you

As far as heat goes.. just get a good case. AMDs are hotter but if you have proper case ventelation you should be find.

I just set up a 64 bit system with the dual core proc. Wow.. so fast!

Go with dual multicore system, but I would wait to see if there are any compadibility problems.

I would also wait for dual dual-core, in either brand, they can't be that far away.

My experience has been that the AMD's are much cooler than Intels (with the exception of some Athlons). Dual Core Opterons are the way to go, Intel isn't going to have anything comparable this year. I'll post some benchmarks when I get some time.
