    My VB site have about:
    400 user online

    I think in:

    Single Intel Woodcrest 5130 Dual Core
    250GB SATA Hard Drive
    2048 MB RAM

    it's a good choice or i need more cpu or ram

    Can help me to chose the OS?
    CentOS Enterprise Linux, Version 4
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Version 5

    best OS x64?

    That server seems like a good start, but if it needs more spice always go for RAM, what was your previous plan? I would recommend CentOs 32bit.

      Maybe you can get an smaller 15k RPM HD or a SCSI for about the same price too.

        I can chose 146GB, 10K RPM SCSI/SAS Hard Drive for only 10$ more. It's a good idea.

        Actualy, I have:
        Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz+
        IDE 80GB Hard Drive
        CentOS Enterprise Linux, Version 4
        1024 MB RAM

        and I have problems with CPU usage

          Definitely you need a high end server as you have huge forum with lot of posts and users. Its nice to see you are looking for a high end server

            That CPU performs really well under stress, a single cpu (it is dual core anway) will do just fine. 2GB ram is recommended, and perhaps even 4, especially if you go 64bit os. Which I don't recommend at this point. But that choice is yours. 250gb hdd is enough, but I rather see you use two separate drives, so you can store or run the mysql database / server from one drive and the web server and files from the other. This way you can load balance internally over 2 drives and have less wait queue perhaps. A high VPS account might do the trick, but seeing it are 400 online users and 1200 posts per day a dedicated solution is def. recommended.

            I'd go check out steadfast, theplanet, softlayer, or any of the other well known and 'long in the business of hosting dedicated servers' over any newcoming company, if not only to ensure you of experienced staff for both setting things up, support and endurance of your community experience.

            These stats, are they daily? If so, perhaps it is worth considering to get 2 web servers, and have the database and stored files on one, and cross backup between the two. A bit more, but better and smoother experience.
