    Ditto to what all the "heavy iron" geeks have said in this thread.

    The next BIG issue you need to carefully consider when you shop is your bandwidth allowance and consumption.

    I'm going to guess at your consumtion: 200 gigs a month

    Since I don't have any first hand experience at this level it's an educated guess Others can help pin it down for you.

    Finally, your back up procedure is? Those little dumps can get really big. Were talking gigs so where will you put the back up and how will you get it? Tape, Raid, rsync, another box in a different data center, a very long download when you are sleeping. </joke>

    P4's are best for graphics and video editing etc. beacuse of the way they transfer large datablocks very quickly. But in a server environment they don't perform as well( I have multiple Athatlon and P4 servers, so I've done tests) As mentioned before, stick with a P3 or definately an Athatlon MP. If you need more info about this lmk!

    Why do pentium 4's suck? I just bought one.

    Pentium 4's do suck. Stay with 3's or Athlon MP's.

    from what i read of P4s for web server = they sux

    i haven't personally experienced P4s for web server or desktops..

    anyway in less than 2 weeks both Intel and AMD have price cuts on their cpus and XP box retail specials

    for 300 concurrent users you need a well configured and optimised

    single Pentium 3, 1ghz better if you can get a tualatin P3 with 512k L2 cache
    1 to 1.5gb ram
    2x scsi 10,000 rpm hdd (1 for web/os files and 1 just for mysql data files)
    runing 2.4.x kernel
    php 4.1.2 + php accelerator
    mysql 3.23.49a

    that would be a tight squeeze if you plan for your vB growth

    you'd be looking at dual p3 1ghz and above for a more comfortable ride and growth

    I would say NO. I would say 800mhz with 768MB of ram would be just nice.

    I knew of a board with 250 ++ online user MAX and it is running on Pentium 3 1 ghz with 512 MB of ram. As the rule of thumb, RAM will speed a lot of things up And ask Eva for the optimum config of MySQL, a wrong config can put your server in hell

    Recommedations are welcome, but I'd like to know first how much power is necessary for this load, before I begin to shop.
