High usage refers to games that consume an abnormally high amount of cpu cycles. Spearhead falls under this category, easily chewing through 50-70% of a 2ghz P4 server. These are charged at higher rates, as I have to to buy more expensive hardware and still run fewer instances per box.

Using a P4 in Linux? What are you smoking?!?! Dude you're die-hard AMD, so use the greater processing bandwidth!! I'll never put another Pentium in a server. Well, unless they double their processing bandwidth, considering how much faster at the core they are. But hey, does anybody else NOT see that comming in this lifetime? HAH!
