Web Design/sever needs


I want to run a Wordpress+buddypress social networking site for a community of 3000 people with 75000 hits per months.  What should be the server requirement ? Please specify how much RAM. Processor  and HD such a server needs?
What measures should I take to use less computer resources?


I would get at least a dedicated server with 32gb of ram, but the bandwidth is your real issue. Make sure to have at least 3000gb per month of upload/ download transfer rate. That way your site won't shut down when people keep using it. As for HD space, that really fepend on what people will be uploading to your site and hosting there as opposed to somewhere else.
