Celerin is probably fine, I assume you don't have a lot of DNS  
traffic. Usually NS2 is on another network...

If its a 64-bit Xeon, AMD would be the right choice. Last gen Xeons  
and before... I386. 7.0 has a lot of SMP improvements besides all the  
other fixes, features and improvements... Why are you shy about using  
it like it costs more than 6? :)
