Hi, I recently got my hands on a Nec Powermate ML470 with a crappy older Core Duo, and I'd like to update the cpu, so that I can host a Minecraft server. I have a total of 8 gigs of ddr2 800mhz ram, and an SSD. Should I get the Q9500, which is a quad core, or the E8600, which runs at 3.3ghz, instead of the 2.83ghz of the Q9500, and scores about 300 point higher in single core, according to passmark's chart? [I don't think that OC is an option, with this motherboard that this machine have (MSI MS-7377 Rev. 1.2)]. I have read that a Minecraft Server does not utilize multiple threads very well, and I am wondering if the extra 2 cores would benefit it at all.
(The server will be having about 10 people, and will not be running any mods. My internet connection is 50down/5up)
