    RAID 5 is only not recommended due to the write speeds, it's not that it's unstable, just that with lots of users, the drives can take a beating.

    RAID 10 does seem to be the way to go, but I'd also go with a vast amount of memory too, server ram is very cheap right now, I'd suggest 16GB as a starting point (and a 64bit OS of course) and really just aim to fit the most that the system will take!
