Dedicated server for hosting videos, what to choose ?

Hi,
I have a website that gets like 50k hits on the posts. The posts are mainly video posts.
Currently I am hosting the videos on youtube, veoh and myspace.
I need to host my own videos on a separate dedicated server. I will put the videos on a server and embed them on the jwplayer on my current site.

I need to know what to look for on the new dedicated server. How much RAM ? Uplink 100Mbit or 1Gbit ? how much traffic and where would be the best host ?

I was thinking about worldstream.nl unmanaged servers, is it good and what about your ideas ?

Thank you for reading

Not too sure if 50k hits are for a month or a day. If those are Monthly hits then a Quad Core server with 4-8 GB RAM will be fine for handling the load. If that's the daily traffic, then a Hexa core or Dual Hexa Core server with 32-64 GB RAM will be the solution. 100 MBPS speed will be fine for the website. I won't recommend a Unmanaged Host. Its always recommended to look for a Managed Hosting provider who is available 24X7 to assist you in your Technical issues.

You also consider whether to choose managed or unmanaged dedicated server. I recommend you visit seekdotnet dotcom to find out if their services meet your requirements.

You Must need 16 GB RAM With 8 core XEON With 1GBPS Port.Otherwise its risky for you.But you can start with XEON 4 core with 8 Gb RAM With 1GBPS Port.
