I have been thinking of leaving this as a completly seperate server
and purchasing new equiptment for running Xen on. I have been looking
at IBM xSeries 446 rack gear with dual 3.0Ghz Xeon 'Irwindale'

In looking at new gear? What would be the best processors to concider?

installed for a day or so - just to play with).
