Obviously we will start off with a lot of disk space and RAID controller. I guess the main question that I do not know the answer to is whether RAM or CPU has a greater effect on user experience. Since RAM is cheap we will probably get as much as possible, but would it be worthwhile to get a dual CPU box, or would the system not benefit from SMP?
I am guessing that the next step would be to eventually graduate to a dedicated database server. For starters, though, we just want to make sure to get something that will not grind to a halt.
Thanks in advance.
