We have pretty close to the same specs on our server. We upgraded last February. This was our first time with CentOS 5.0. We love it. I have not rebooted my server since February and it is fast as ever! It seems to manage memory really well and it cleans up after itself and bad processes well.
I agree with the others on managing one of these boxes in your office. A headache I'd gladly pay someone else to do. =)
Brett - Do you use any caching solutions like memcache? We found it can pretty much double to triple the server's capacity if implemented properly.
