I think he is giong to need a Dual dual core Xeons or dual Quads which would be better. Then around 6GB of RAM would do (DDR 800). 4GB may run ok if it is 1.6 and not source.
One HDD would be good SAS if you can afford it but Enterprise SATA II drives would run well also. Do not get a desktop drive for a server that has 100 slots running or it will not last long.
RAID 0 would be great if you can afford it again but not needed but would help performance .
If you keep 60 slots on average during a 24 hour period your BW bill might be expensive so keep that in mind when pricing your servers out. I would do some research here or ask you provider if you have one how much BW your server uses a month or day or maybe they have a graph for you.
Hope this helps.
