Can you help me with my capacity planning?
I am going to make an Internet project. The sizes of it I don't know now. But I want to ask some questions. :
1. What database system is better? ( MySql or other )
2. What is more useful CPU or RAM?
3. What server is better for database server ( i5-2500 (4 x 3.2Ghz) and 16 GB Ram or Xeon E5330 (8 x 2.1Ghz) and 8 GB Ram )?
I think that read queries will be more then input/update and of course with joins.
