I am a dev. and have written basic app. which will be used by customers this app. Basically, I present them screen to select their excel file which has some billing info. we are analyzing this billing info and presenting overcharged columns and then they can export this sheet back to their machine.

Since I am primarily familiar with SQL Server, I propose the 2008 R2.

THere is one main large table which holds pricing info. about 56mb. there might be a smaller product table but not sure yet we are tring to get the billers to provide some info like product category.

We would need a users table. this is about it. We are not saving the users sheets although that is always possible.

What sort of checklist would i need to go through in order to properly size which server I would need?

I am not experienced at all, very little sql server just dev background.

Have you considered SQL Server 2012 as that will be out very shortly? –  Martin Smith Mar 19 '12 at 16:48
