So you are looking for a dedicated server, and realize oh jeez I don’t know a whole lot about managing a dedicated server.

It seems that with each new release of Windows system administrators have the world’s worst time migrating from the previous operating system release to the latest.

E2200 versus the E6320, which is better? Which processor is better depends a lot on your definition of better. The E2200 is clocked at 2.2GHz and slightly outperforms the E6320 which is clocked at 1.86GHZ. This slight performance boost does come at a price though.
