Moving from VB 5

#1
Hi,
i'm about to get xenforo and I was wondering what kind of server specs do i need ?
This are my VB 5 forum stats,

Topics: 24,175 Posts: 642,119 Members: 3,723 Active Members: 1,295

Its running on the follow specs ,

Brand and Model Dell - R210-2
Processor 1x Intel Quad-Core Xeon E3-1270V2 [ 4 Core(s) ]
RAM 8 GB
HDD 2x1 TB SATA

And who can i approach to do the conversion service ?

Thanks, have approached a few members for their service, can't wait to move out of VB5 .
Can I downgrade the server specs ? As I find its an overkill now.

In general, feedback we have received suggests that fewer server resources are required for XF so you may be able to get away with a lower spec.

Staff might be able to recommend vB5 to MyBB to XF as MyBB is working on a vB5 importer as one user there gave them his/her database. vBulletin 5 is reportedly very complex in regards to the DB, so maybe that is a reason why xF does not have an importer. Probably, just as well as there is not a huge demand for it. I wonder why IB (who owns vB) not use it on their own sites, but rather use vB3 and vB4.
