Hi Andreas,

I just wanted to follow this up with a quick couple of questions since
we're almost ready to  order the servers:

We've pretty much decided to go for Opterons. Our main concern is
figuring out which CPU-power to opt for. What CPUs did you have in that
machine of yours? 248 (2.2GHz), 250 (2.4GHz) or 252 (2.6GHz)? And how
much of a single CPU's processing power is used for a full 64-man server?

Simply put: Will the 248 give a really nice and smooth experience with
two 64-player servers on one machine, or do we need a 250 or even a 252?
