I just can tell you that AMD has proofen their reliability in a lot of server 
environments of my friends and since everything after 
coppermine/tualatin/M/dothan... INTELs do consume at least the same power and 
with the northwood core much more power than performance equivalent AMDs.
So in my opinion these are all ineligible for servers but that's another 
I'd take the AMD and reinvest the saved money in very good coolers
And of corse there is the bright new 64-bit world......
No long-term behaviour nor productive environment experiences but I only hear 
positive stories...
