What size server is best for my upgrade?

I am looking at upgrading my application server. I currently run Win2000 server with dual 866 MHz P4 processors and 2.7 GB RAM and 6 + 9 GB hard drives in a RAID 5. My main application is Solomon IV. I have approximately 90 users, 20 of which access the network remotely on a terminal server. My current database in on SQL Server 7 and is approximately 36 GB. What size server would you recommend we move to? Thanks.
I'd recommend contacting the Solomon vendor and asking them. Otherwise, buy the best box you can afford. You can save some money by purchasing one to two generations of processor speeds behind the current high-speed cutting edge. So, if 2.4 GHz is the fastest, go with a 2.0 GHz.
