We moved from vB 4.x to xF 2.x last year and the performance difference between the two is like night and day (why didn't we move to xF earlier???).

We're very happy with our performance and our host with the exception of the cost. What I'm looking for is some feedback on hardware specs for hosting. We don't want to have a performance drop but we feel like what we have may be overkill.
