The motherboard is TYAN Thunder n6650W (S2915), with 2x Opteron 2214HE. The newer machine has one C2Q 6600 CPU and some Gigabyte MB I bought over 3 years ago.

Thanks. Could you maybe provide a rough estimate of how bad things would turn out if I tried to actually play a game on the older machine? I'm going to try it myself, but it's a case of hoping for 24 additional hours in a day

purchasing additional stuff is not an option in this case, so this really is a question of either-or. VMs will not be running at the same time as games, and when it comes to games, I'm trying to find out whether with all other params being the same, the older monster can perform as well as the newer PC, when used for mid-range games. I basically want to be able to play COD or AC with no lags on medium gfx settings

I didn't mention the GFX card because it's the same card that will either go into one box or the other (NV 450GT or somesuch). I probably needed to be more clear on the exact use case - virtualization is going to happen every once in a while - when I need to bring up a Linux VM or 10, for a small demo cluster or to test a concept. So the main question here is whether, with all other params being the same, the older monster can perform as well as the newer PC, when used for mid-range games. I basically want to be able to play COD or AC with no lags on medium gfx settings
