Best hardware spec for medium business web server RRS feed

  • Question

  • This question doesn't fit neatly into this form, but it seemed to be the best fit I could find.

    We have a need for web servers at remote sites which will connect to a central database. We have around 50 sites so we can't spend 20-30k on a server. File storage will be most likely on another server. There may be ~20-150 users at each site which I guess would equate to around 2-10 concurrent users. Performance is a major issue so we want the best/fastest hardware spec possible for the web servers around the $3000-6,000 price range.

    Is it just a matter of getting the fastest processor & disk speeds? What's best for a web server: dual / quad core? Other factors?
