In your opinion, would you go with lower clock speed quad cores, or higher clock speed dual cores?
Right now I'm doing the same thing with nginx (1) -> nginx myself. I might switch back to something else so I can do healthchecks and remove servers from the pool.
I'll probably stick with Linux for the clients as I am more comfortable with those. I won't need to do much work on the NFS server so that's fine keeping it FBSD...
I'd really appreciate your opinion though on the hardware.

Understood. I don't -want- to use NFS, but nobody else has given me any other options. I tried iSCSI+OCFS2, and that had some odd issues and I am not sure it was reliable enough for a low-latency web environment with millions of files.
We use the proxying in this case instead of NFS:
client > nginx (1) > nginx
On nginx (1) it's better to set "proxy_max_temp_file_size 0" for the proxied location.
I'm pretty OCD, I'd like all my machines to match, and I have the ability right now to get them synced up before I start using them.
Also, would FreeBSD or Linux be better for the dual or quad core? Last answer I got was nginx probably works better under FBSD. NFS works better under FBSD too. My NFS server is already FBSD...
Use OS that you know better. I think FreeBSD and Linux are both good for nginx.

As Igor suggested serving files directly from NFS will cause the workers to stall. You should be able to compensate by using more workers, perhaps 2 or 3 per physical CPU but it depends heavily on the setup of your NFS server, the network in between, etc.

yeah i shouldn't be hitting the SATA bottleneck. right now most is served via NFS,
