The optimal hardware setup depends on the usage scenario for the server. For which services shall the server be used?

The Bottleneck on most hosting systems is the harddisk performance and not the CPU. So for hosting systems that run cms systems with large mysql databases it can be better to invest the money in a fast ssd disk and use a cheaper cpu instead.
