So he priced up one of those big web servers for RoBs database to sit on as well as one of the Quadcores to run apache. He discounted me what I've paid so far (thank god) against the new server, the spec for those interested is:
Two quad core 2.13GHz processors, 24GB of RAM, 4x73GB 2.5 inch 10,000rpm SAS disks in hardware RAID10
As you can see a lot more power, and allows a lot growth and MUCH FASTER PAGE VIEWS, which is my main concern. It's going to be installed in 2-3 weeks, and I'm really looking forward to it.
As for cost, let's just say it cost me quite a few thousand dollars to get and will be that to run each year. So I appreciate anyone helping out by buying VIP/plasma and entering the current competition.
