Either will probably cost more than the computer is worth. Set up the 
6100 as is to see where the bottleneck is. If it's the network, 10Base-T 
tops out at about 60-70 MB/min. througput. If you're not getting close to 
that (I think we averaged about 40 MB/min. when we used a 6100 backup 
server), then a faster CPU might improve things -- but probably not 
enough to justify the expense for maybe one-third less time running 

The money spent on a faster processor or ethernet card might instead buy 
a much more capable backup computer on the used market.
