    Thanks Andy.

    So if I buy the single cpu dual core, I should get at least the same or better performance than a dual cpu, right?

    Also, will it show two CPU's in task manager or one?

    The best way to think of dual core is Intel/AMD have taken to seperate chips and squezed them into one package.  So yes, dual core is almost idendical to two seperate single core chips.

    A basic dual core 1U server from dell should be in the <£1K range.
