I'd go with Intel if it's a dual the 512kb chips are pretty good. If it was a 1ghz server - go with a duron - had one of those running with a very good load for the best part of a year - no problem at all.

Yeah, but when RackShack offered their AMD Duron's with 1GHz, they stopped offering more since they were over-heating. I know this myself since I e-mailed them AGES back when they only had Plesk and they said this, so it looks like even the big boys think Intel is better?
Everyone has problems - Look at NAC, dednow, burst - they used to have good reviews, then they had problems. I've been there 18 months now at DV2 - we have problems but the service is damn good for the price, and they are very helpful. I have built up a great business relationship with them.
