In many situations, the difference in resource consumption will be too
small to worry about. As the number of simultaneous connections grows,
Superserver becomes more and more efficient compared with Classic. But
Classic has multiprocessor support. This may be a good reason to go
for Classic; just make sure you install 1.5.1 or higher - "plain" 1.5
Classic is not 100% mature in all respects, especially on Windows.

There's a comparison table in the Quick Start Guide:

and go to the "Classic or Superserver" section)

But if you want to be absolutely sure, you have to run tests with both
Classic and Super, on the configuration(s) your software will run on.
