Do you require 24*7 availability?
Is the client base in-house or over the internet?
Did you develop the application with VS2008 Pro or VS2008 Team version? If the latter then you can simulate 200 concurrent users.
Without such testing, it is impossible to give anything other a general estimate. You should look at a minimum of:
What are the disk space requirements of your application?

Since 24*7 is required, you should consider having twin servers with a load balancing router. Unless you opt for sticky session, it will require you to use an AspState database. Alternatively you can cluster two IIS servers as either Active-Active or Active-Passive.
Exactly how big a box is required is impossible to say, however adequete RAM and provision to add more if required is essential.
Since you have used VS2008 Express, you will not have had access to load testing tools. You will therefore need to get as many people as possible to concerrently use your test server and extrapolate from there. In particular you should measure the peak CPU
usage and the peak RAM usage. From the number of users and the usage, estimate likely RAM and CPU usage when live.
