      Hi.

       

      I need a Xeon but I have some doubts regarding which one, I can spend up to $300. It's for a workstation, two important apps work only in 32-bit XP only. I intend to buy a Xeon E5405 2.0 GHz 12M L2 Cache 1333MHz FSB LGA771 Active Quad-Core or a Xeon X3360 2.83 Ghz 12M L2 Cache 1333MHz FSB LGA775 Quad-Core.

      Is MB cache as important as GHz? There is a E5506 Nehalem-EP 2.13GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 4MB L3 Cache, it's cheaper. More GHz but less Cache.

      Any suggestion up to $300 is very welcome.
