Intel Xeon E5640 VS E5649 for VMWARE

Hello,

I am new to virtualization and working on getting a server for my lab to try out VMWARE. I am planning on getting a dual processor, 24GB, 1TB SAS, HP Proliant DL380 server. I have two options for the CPU. Intel Xeon E5640 (4 core) 2.66GHZ and Intel E5649 (6 core) 2.53GHZ. What would be better for virtualization? more cores or better clock speed?

Initially I will be installing lab Cisco Call manager on this server. Later I might add few more VMs.

Thank you

I would choose more core

Most of the time speed ins't an issue for lab

You just need to run more VMs
