SQL Server Hardware Setup

I have a SQL Server 2000 database that I will need to take from
development and put into production. Currently the database is on a
workstation running Windows 2K Server for development purposes. The
database will have dozens of users with data entry capability and
hundreds of users with viewing/querying capability. The users will
have a web front end to the database. I need to know the best possible
hardware setup I will need to purchase to support this user scenario.
Money is no object but the cost must still be within reason. Can
anybody give me any recommendations or point me to some websites that
have hardware specs for SQL Server?

You need to analyse the transactions within your application and then
you can calculte cpu, memory and I/O depending on projected number of
users, amount of data, required response time etc. I found it very
useful, quite a lot of work to do it properly though.

Hope this helps
