Re: [K12OSN] CPU vs. RAM for two users

Athlons are considerably faster than P4's, clock for clock. I'd say, of your two choices, go with the Athlon in this case.

Thanks for the tip, Terrell, I knew they were about the same speed-wise
(I looked up the 1.8 ghz speed after I posted). You guys who do this on
a larger scale will know more abt the CPU's than I.
One thing I forgot to mention, the I/O and disks will remain basically
the same, just basically changing MOBO/CPU beneath it. Since the
existing one is 4.4.x this would be an excellent time to upgrade as
well! I have spare disks, so I will probably set up the new one, create
the basic users and then copy the /home and custom configs to the new

With only 2-3 users, you should be fine with 768MB DRAM.  Obviously,
more is better, but an AMD 1.8GHz chip (the "2200") will handily
out-run any Pentium-4 of similar clock speed
