Hi Sebastian,

In terms of CPU power, any modern multi-core processor will perform 
absolutely fine. Make sure that you have plenty of RAM for caching (more 
than 4Gb) with nice fast disks to boot.

As long as the majority of your queries don't return more than a few 
hundred rows then I think you will be fine.
