What bus speeds?
533MHz on the 32-bit Intel will give you about 4.2Gbps of IO throughput...
I think the Sun will be 150MHz, 64bit is 2.4Gbps of IO. Correct me if i am wrong.

	We are looking into Sun V210 (2 x 1 GHz cpu, 2 gig ram, 5.8Os) vs. Dell 1750
	(2 x 2.4 GHz xeon, 2 gig ram, RH3.0). database will mostly be
	write intensive and disks will be on raid 10. Wondering if 64bit 1 GHz to
	32bit 2.4 GHz make a big difference here.

	One thing this very much depends on is what you're trying to do.
	Suns have a reputation for greater reliability.  While my own
	experience with Sun hardware has been rather shy of sterling, I _can_
	say that it stands head and shoulders above a lot of the x86 gear you
	can get.
	If you're planning to use Solaris on x86, don't bother.  Solaris is a
	slow, bloated pig compared to Linux, at least when it comes to
	managing the largish number of processes that Postgres requires.
	If pure speed is what you're after, I have found that 2-way, 32 bit
	Linux on P-IIIs compares very favourably to 4 way 64 bit Ultra SPARC

	TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
