I have a need for a dedicated server for my blogs...

There are a total of 11 blogs and 1 forum.

All in all they get around 20,000 uniques per day.

Right now they are all over the place in different hosting accounts and I am spending $60 per month in total, so I am thinking of moving to a server.

What processor, and memory would I need for the new server- is a high-end celeron good enough, or a P4? I have no clue how to estimate how fast a processor or how much memory I will need.

Any advice from expert webmasters/admins is very welcome :)

Although you haven't given us much information to go on (what blogging software, for example?) I'd guess that a dedicated server is way overkill.

Go for VPS account if you really have very good spare money to spend then go for dedicated

You can always shift from VPS to dedicated if you are not satisfied with its performance
