    Please help decide the right server configuration

      Hello,

       

      Pls pardon my ignorance. The office wants to purchase a Xeon Quadcore server.

       

      I would like to know the difference between the E5472 and X5492 processors. All I can notice is the difference in power. One is 80W and the other 150 W. What is the significance of this?

       

      Intel® Server Board S5000PAL
      Or  Intel® Server Board S5000PSL

       

      Again what are the plus minus of the boards.

       

      The guys want to rig up a server to develop mobile applications mainly. They would also like to set up a web server.

       

      Any other configuration which you feel will do this?

       

      Appreciate your tolerance to and help with these issues

       

      Thanks
