I am currently working in development of ASP.NET project with framework 3.5, plus some additional open source components such as AJAX Tool Kits, iTextSharp and MSChart.exe (from Microsoft), and connecting to MS SQL 2008 Enterprise Edition. Both of the development
machine (IIS and SQL Server) are running on Windows 2003 32-bits.
Now, moving into "live" server, since the requirement is having 8GB of RAM on both server, may I know if there is any impact for this? What I need to take note? And if I have no choice to downgrade it to 4 GB, will it be sufficient for my application to
run? Note that this is only an Intranet web-based application, used by aroung 50 users (not concurrently) - maybe 25 - 30 users at one time. Data shown in the system most of the time is text-based, but there is also graph display.
Hope to get some repsonse, advise or comment here..

That kind of application would absolutely fly along on a server configured in the way you describe. I normally answer questions like this with "how can we know enough to be able to answer", but this one's a no-brainer (assuming you aren't going to be running
Exchange Server for 500 people or something similar on the same box). I had sites with a million page views + pa (16 of them) running with Access databases on a Windows 2003 Web Edition Server with 512MB of RAM without problem for a few years.
I'm also assuming you have followed general Best Practice - ensure connections are opened and closed properly, session data is minimised, file handles and other unmanaged resources are released properly etc?
