I try to repost my query which wasn´t much frequented in the Processor Section:
At the moment I´m building a Fileserver for approx. 5 users, so far the system looks like this:
4x1GB DDR2 ECC Micron
main purpose is fileserving, backups and encryption via Truecrypt.
As Truecrypt multithreads very well I´m looking for a decent Quad-Core for enough troughput. I´m pondering now between the Intel Xeon X3330
(2,66 Ghz / 6MB / 1333FSB) and the X3350 / X3360 ( with 12MB L2 Cache)
Would the difference between 6 and 12MB L2 Cache be noticeable? The price premium for the 12MB L2 model would be around ~ 70€ , so it is a big difference (almost 50% more expensive than the 6MB model)
I appreciate any help.
