Laptop to Desktop server Migration

I am currently running a Dell Laptop with a Pentium M 2.0ghz with 2gb ram as my server. I need to free up my laptop so I need a new processor to throw in with my spare desktop parts laying around. I run Mandriva 2006 web server. I already have the mobo, ram, psu, case, fans, etc but I need a new processor. I dont want to spend more than 200 bucks on a new processor. My question is, would you go with a low end Opteron (IE. AMD Opteron 148 Venus Core) or something like a AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego Core. It has to be socket 939.

No problem. I was weighing my options between AMD 3800 + X2 and AMD 4000 + and Opteron 165 Denmark. While the Opteron 165 is the best choice (it has the 2meg lvl 2 cache) It was a little out of my price range so that was out. I threw out the 4000+ as well, I decided I would get more for my money with the dual core option, IMO dual-core is the way to go when running a server. So my choice wsa the 3800+ X2. For under 170 dollars at newegg you cant beat the price.
