It really depends on the size of your network, number of users, and how 
complicated your content delivery scenario is.  The most important thing is 
to make sure your postgresql database is vacumed properly and frequently.

ISF's server is a 1.8GHz (or so) intel xeon with 4GB of ram (of which we use 
less than 1 for wifidog) and sata disks.
