Intel Xeon 3450 (Dual Core) or Intel Xeon 3040 (Dual Core)

Intel Xeon 3450 (Dual Core) or Intel Xeon 3040 (Dual Core)

Would it make a big difference which processor I used on my dedicated server: The Intel Xeon 3450 (Dual Core) 1 GB DDR2 Memory or the Intel Xeon 3040 (Dual Core) 8 GB DDR2 Memory for my website http://www.ilovecheaptravel.com ? My site has really slowed down since I switched to a VPS hosting plan with 256mb of RAM.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

AFAIK web servers are RAM sensitive (for stuff like caching pages and databases). However, a faster CPU might help if you enable compression to minimize page size during transmission. But I would say go with the greater amount of RAM.
