Hi, Kevin.  Thanks for your advice, but I think you're
misunderstanding the situation I'm in.  I'm not installing Bugzilla
for the first time.  We already have over 100 users and 50,000 bugs.
I want to migrate it to a larger system, and I wanted to know where to
direct our investment.

If we could get a dual processor machine with each processor being
faster than the single processor we have now plus much more RAM plus a
bigger, faster, RAID system, then I know that the new system would be
faster, but I also know we'd be spending a lot of money that could
more usefully be spent elsewhere.  But where should the money be spent?
I was trying to figure that out.
