Hi! I'm doing my practical at IT support in an non-profit organisation. /ph34r.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='ph34r.gif' /> We have here about 25 machines (or atleast 25 licences). And my boss wants to upgrade our server. It is mainly now as fileserver, where is common files (like docs) etc. Maybe some account info too. I was thinking is it enough to buy AMD Athlon 3800+ or do we need Opteron if we want that we dont have to upgrade again soon. The machine is running NT now, but we think of upgrading to 2000 or 2003. I personally think Athlon would be enough, since we dont have too much money, but then again i dont want to be blamed for recommending too slow machine... So which do we go?
And whats the difference anyway (exept price) ? /wacko.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wacko.gif' />

if you can find an opteron 165, it would actually be cheaper, and its a dual core opteron.

provided by 3800 you meant the dual core version?
