I'm looking over a couple of used systems that I can get for less than 150USD. I can't seem to decide if I should splurge and get a 4x box for 25 dollars more than a 2x at a slightly higher clockspeed.

112952-001-B1-06        Proliant 6500 - 4xPIII Xeon500MHz/1MB, 256MB
100738-003-B1-06        Proliant 5500 - 2xPIIIXeon550MHz/512KB, 256MB

Any suggestions?

I read that domU's will be able to see multiple processors in a later version of Xen. Should I go for the 4x hoping that feature will be supported with 32bit chips? It seems a lot of development talk I've been reading recently is in the 64bit arena.
