    That would depend.

    What sort of community are we talking about? If its an IRC or forum community, we might be talking of a lot more power than another sort of community.

    I understand. You might want to look into your budget a bit. What sort of prices are you looking to get. I would suggest, for the ammount of users you have said, at least a couple of servers or a dual server.

    What does your budget look like?

    For something like that consider a small server as the web server, with a large opteron dual 244 for the database. if you have the money check : www.rackspace.com
