    Hello capote,

    Welcome to WHT! In my opinion you should consider these few things before you make a decision.

    Firstly, looking at your requirement (~200 hits an hour) , do you really need a dedicated server? If yes, then is it commercial or personal websites that you are running?

    In either case, if you have decided to go for a dedicated server, I would recommend LT-P4-3.6 for your needs. Later on when you need more resources, the existing config + more RAM should get you going for a little longer before you might need to change the entire configuration.

    Hi ipower, thanks for your reply. We have more than 150 websites. Lot of them have 2000-4000 uniques daily, other 1000-2000 uniques daily, other around 500, ...........
    We would use more than 800 GB Data transfer / month.

    a basic celeron could hold your requirements fine on the hardware side.

    In my opinion, LT-P4-3.6 is what you should pick from whatever you mentioned above. Later on when things change for you in terms of more stress on the server you can simply add another 1g of ram and things should be smooth before a major upgrade might be required.

    Thx!

    I'd pick the AMD 64 3800 if I were you. That AMD machine will blow out a P4 3.x GHz any day of the week.

    Add a gig of RAM as suggested once you see a need.

    The AMD system will perform better than the Intel system.

    I would be considering dual processor/core, though.

    If properly configured, the LT-AMD-3700 should be fine. If things get rough, upgrade the memory.

    Why get that when the 3800 with SATA drives is cheaper?

    The AMD 3700 has a 120GB hard drive. The 3800 has a 80GB hard drive.

    SATA doesn't increase drive performance. You're always going to be limited by the physical characteristics of the platters.
