Hello Rahulja,

first of all, with the Nexus 5000 you may need a fabric extender to be able to connect GE server NICs

in short Nexus provides greater 10GE port density in comparison to C6500

a WS 6748 with appropriate DFC is a good linecard for a server farm and it is targeted to this use.

Hope to help
