I can't give you an exact reason that dual processor is preferable, but we
used a simple 'off the shelf' Dell "pizza box" dual P4-1.3GHz w/ 1GB + 3 x
18Gb hdd's while testing our app and database.  Finally when the testing was
complete we rolled it out on to our monster server.  Maybe a Dell server
would suit you fine until you find your feet...
