Recommended Hardware - EV Store and SQL Server

I am in the process of planning our EV environment.

The Performance Guide recommends a SQL server with 8GB of RAM for medium or large environments. I do not think we qualify as medium or large, but am curious what other users of EV recommend based on their experience.
We have 300 mailboxes, approx 50,000 messages a day to journal and then archive.

Based on our mail volume, I'd also like to know what y'all recommend for the EV Store server. 4GB - 8GB of RAM......Windows Server x64(using WOW64)?

Thanks in advance.

 If you are running SQL on

 If you are running SQL on the same server as EV then Yes 8GB is recommended.

I'm guessing you will be installing the latest version of EV which is Version 8, this version is not supported in a 64Bit environment so yes to installing it in x64 using WOW

One more thing to consider please...

We will be running the Compliance Accelerator on the same box as the EV.  I am expecting the Compliance and Legal dept sto perform CA searches multiple times a day.  Does this affect the recommendation of 4GB?

 It depends on how hard you

 It depends on how hard you will be hitting the server.

If you expect CA to not be a heavy hitter then you should be OK. In saying that it is better to have them seperate
