Big load average Dell PowerEdge 6850 and MySQL 5.0.88-ius-log Distributed by The IUS Community Project

Hello.

Few days ago, I launch server Dell PowerEdge 6850 (4xIntel(R) Xeon(TM) MP CPU 3.66GHz (8 cores), Memory 8x2GB, HDD 4x73GB - server A102 inner name). Server used for hosting the site (more than 1 million hits per day).
On server I use httpd, nginx and MySQL. Then it's start to work I see big load average: 14.50, 18.58, 21.70 and more. This time pages loading very slow.

Before I use two servers: Dell PowerEdge 1750 2xIntel(R) Xeon(TM) MP CPU 3.00GHz (4 cores) - inner name A100, Memory 6GB, HDD 140GB; nonbrand server Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 2.40GHz (4 cores) - server inner name A101, Memory 6GB, HDD 280GB. In this configuration Dell used for httpd, php and etc (with load average: 1.55, 1.68, 1.73) and A101 server used for MySQL (load average: 3.26, 3.91, 4.78).

My question is:
why on Dell PowerEdge 6850 (A102) so big la? It contains 8 cores on server A102 and 8 cores in summary on servers A100 and A101.
Maby somebody can help me to fix config file or some hard fixes (if it's because of 8 cores) for server A102.

All data was checked at highest loads.
My my.cnf files at bottom.

A102 - MySQL version 5.0.88-ius-log Distributed by The IUS Community Project
A101 - MySQL version 5.0.86-log Source distribution

Also I test database by query result time:
-------------------
SELECT t1.*, t4.name AS name1, t4.name AS name2, t3.name AS name3, t3.shortname AS name4, t5.name AS name5, t5.shortname AS name6, t5.bigname AS name7, t2.name AS name8, t2.shortname AS name9
FROM table1 AS t1
LEFT JOIN table2 AS t2 ON t2.pid = t1.id
LEFT JOIN table3 AS t3 ON t3.id = t1.pid
LEFT JOIN table4 AS t4 ON t4.id = t3.pid
LEFT JOIN table5 AS t5 ON t5.id = t1.pid
WHERE t1.enable = 1
ORDER BY t1.datetime DESC
LIMIT 0,50

server - onload first - onload second - without load
A102 - 110.1307 - 118.0584 - 0.7104
A101 - 1.0192 - 0.5303 - 0.6743
-------------------

Best regards.
