[bf1942] P4 or Athlon for server platform?

The general feeling ive had when trying to run 24+ player servers is
laggyness on anything around/below athlon xp 1800. I have heard reports
of it running nicer on the t bred 2200+'s or above, but personally
havent used a 2200 yet, so it may run that much better...

Er, are you sure about those numbers? The servers run by Nvidia are XP 
2600 machines, with the nForce 2 chipset, and they happily support 64 
players without any particular lag.
