XEON Virgin Needs Help

Hello all,

This thread may get long so I will start off slowly.

I need to upgrade our existing file & print server (ML570 G3 single core XEON) to something with a bit more power and more importantly, storage capacity.

Two questions to start off with:-

1) I have been looking at the DL380 G5.
Will a dual core XEON 5160 3GHz provide better performance than a quad core E5335 2GHz CPU?
Future proofing is of upmost importance.

2) I am planning on bolting on a SmartArray 60 (MSA60) to this server. Will I need to purchase an additional P800 card for use with this array or can I use the inbuilt P400 card?
I only ask as I saw an HP compatibility matrix which stated that this server had P800 on board but my suppliers stated it was a P400
