Is this worth the upgrade?
Im currently jointly renting a Windows 2003 based dedicated server from a GSP in the UK. The specs are:

AMD x2 4800+ Dual core @ 2.4ghz
2GB PC3200 DDR Ram
Sata Raptor 74GB 10,000 16MB cache hard drive

£115 per month for the box

However, in a few weeks, the GSP will be rolling some Conroe boxes (and they are upgrading their routers and switches to highest spec Cisco systems. the new switch for example will be Cisco Catalyst 3750G-24TS-S)

The new conroe specs will be as follows:

Core 2 DUO E6600
WD Raptor HD 16MB cache at 10000RPM.

The price will be £120-£125.

The clan which i belong to at the moment is increasing its popularity and wish to run more player slots on a powerful machine without any significant decrease in server FPS.

Would a conroe setup be worth the extra £10-£15 on paper?
From how you put it it'd really be 5-10 not 10-15 anyways, i guess it depends on how many slots you wanna add. im sure the AMD will handle it, but if you wanna be on the safe side then upgrade to the conroe.
