I am needing to build a new TS for work. The old TS is on its way out and the guy that set this unit up before is long gone. I have never built a TS before, It will be running server 2k8 and I am leaning towards Intel Xenons. It will be supporting roughtly 60-75 clients at a time. Any ideas
Hey look, buddy, I'm an Engineer. That means I solve problems. Not problems like 'what is beauty?', because that would fall within the purview of your conundrums of philosophy. I solve practical problems.

it i was you i would try and downgrade it to windows 2003 and run office 2003 save a massive amount on cals

For that many clients i wouldn't use just one server i would use 1 server per 10/20 clients depending on the services they require you maybe be able to get away with a higher ratio. 1 box for data and 1 box for data bases

If you list the services required i could help you some more but 10 users can smash a few gigs of ram pretty quick
