Recommended hardware and software

Hello dear WRF users! My first post. I'm planning to install WRF for first time, for operational usage over Adriatic/Croatian region. I have few questions:

1.) If you can choose between Intel and AMD platform, which would you prefer for WRF?

2.) If you can choose between Core2Duo E8400 (3GHz, 6MB cache, FSB 1333MHz) and Core2Quad Q9300 (2.5GHz, 6MB cache, FSB 1333MHz) which one would you prefer? Will WRF benefit more from quad cores or higher frequency in C2Duo?

3.) What OS do you prefere? Linux, FreeBSD or something else? Must be free though. If Linux, what distribution will give least problems with installation and running WRF? I'm relatively familiar with lot of Linux distros and BSD.

Thanks a lot for every answer,
Ivan Toman
