    Hi,
    If it is going down then upgrading is not the only solution. We have to consider several factors before going for an upgradation.

    The Dual Woodcrest would be good but you might need to move the MySQL off to its own server as well if the CPU can't keep up

    How big is your forum? And what's the exact problem you're having?

    The dual Woodcrest server is a lot more powerful than your current box, but only in terms of CPU. If your problem is disk I/O or memory, it won't help at all.

    A SCSI drive with 10,000+ RPM would need for the SQL side of things on its own box maybe.

    Hi,
    The factors that you should consider before going for a server are
    1. NOC
    2. Admin Company
    3. Server Configuration

    My recommendations are planet or rackspace(NOC), slashome(admin company)

    Can you post you forum details?We can't recommend upgrade or just optimizer without your forum details
