Hardware and Experience

I am looking to gain some insite as to what others are using and how well it performs.
The reason I ask is because I'm getting ready to upgrad my last server from v4.x to v5.x.
My first control/scanner is a dual Xeon 2.8Ghz/2Gb and it works great.
My second scanner I installed on a quad Xeon PIII 700Mhz/1Gb os on a raid1 data on raid5. It works fine for about 10-15min then mail flow stops due to connection timeout. Also conduit and filterhub consume about 100% for a few minutes and then returns to normal and after a few minutes its back to 100% again. If I telnet into the server from that server I can send myself a email but its very sluggish. I do know that the minimum requirement calls for a P4 but I thought this server should be able to handle it as it does nothing else currently.
I have one more scanner to upgrade and it's a single P4 1.8G/2G ram with everything on a raid1 but hesitate because of the problem encountered with the 2nd scanner.
Thanks for the feedback.
