Optimize wordpress sites (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I´m building 6 sites in wordpress:
    - A small local newspaper
    - A local magazina
    - A places directory
    - A simple blog
    - A buddypress comunity
    I want to optimize my sites all that i can without losing a lot of the features.
    I was thinking about getting a dedicated server to serve them.
    I estimate that i´m going to have around 40.000 unique visitor and around a 400.000 pageviews/month in total (all sites, not on a site).

    Will this server do?
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Dual Core
    RAM4 GB DDR2Hard disc2 x 400 GB SATA II

    I don´t know if there is some sort of calculation i could do to figure this out.

    I can post here a more specific details about my sites performance in terms of queries:

    Newspaper - Homepage: 128 Valid queries. None slow, none invalid - Memory: 36.6MB.
    Newspaper - Articles: 147 Valid queries. None slow, none invalid -Memory: 35.5MB.

    Magazine - Homepage: queries: 135, none defective, none > 0.500 sec. Memory: 28.7MB
    Magazine - Articles: queries: 130, none defective, none > 0.500 sec. Memory: 28.8MB

    Places directory - Homepage: DB queries: 471, 3 defective, 0 slow (> 0.500 sec) Memory: 37.3MB
    Places directory - Articles:DB queries: 220, 3 defective, 0 slow (> 0.500 sec) Memory: 34.2MB

    Buddypress:- DB queries: 191, 1 defective, 0 slow (> 0.500 sec) Memory: 28.9MB

    Thanks,

    Hi James,
    Thanks for the link, but it dosen't really answer my question.

    I already know about optimizing, queries, minify, and all that.
    I´m already running w3tc and caching everything i can. The sites get good grades in yslow but still need more optimization.
    I do intend on making my sites the best they can be in this areas, but...does this server work for what i want? To much power? Need more ram?
