Impossible to say based on only these numbers.

Concurrent visitors is a much better number to estimate the server needed.

I suggest you post in the vBulletin.com Server Configuration (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=14) forum. Make sure to include the information requested in [Server Optimisation]: Required info for optimisation requests [January 15, 2007] (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70117)

Well the 'best' solution would be a large server farm that pays for itself....one can dream. :)

We run a dedicated box for two forums at the moment...no way we could do this with shared hosting. Neither forum is considered a "big board" although given another year one of them will probably be there stat wise. Regardless we have our share of server problems due to the load because one of the forums has an very active "turbo posting" user base. They also have a few modifications installed that I could personally do without (I yanked their shout box ages ago ;)).

As you can see our main problem is concurrent users (as Marco pointed out in his post above). We aren't to the point where we need new hardware yet..but it'll be soon if we don't get our server loads down.

You have close to 2,000,000 posts and you're on a shared or a VPS?

What is your page load times?

I normally have 200-300 users logged in at any given time. My server sends out 10,000 emails a day for email notification of PMs and thread subscriptions. I need a dedicated just for that alone..

How are you managing this?

I'd say it's the only solution. You may need more than one box if it's growing at a fast pace.

If so, I'd really like to move my site to his host, because they're obviously excellent.
