I don't know very well Postgresql, but i can say something about Intel 
Be carefull on one thing, speed is not always linked to frequency.

Intel plateforme itself will have a big impact on performance too 
(memory speed, northbridge and soutbridge performance...).
Other thing, i think that Xéon quad core is "Core 2 Duo" based (most 
Dual core Xéon can be of differents modeles, wich modèles ? 5x00 ?

Exemple here :

A Core 2 duo at 2.4 Ghz is much better than an old pentium 4 at 3.73 Ghz !!
Xéon and Core / Pentium plateform are quite same thing, so you can have 
an idea.
