You want a high-end server CPU like a xeon, and prererably more than one.
You should invest in an actual server pc, its better build quality and more reliable

Something like a HP/Compaq server

you are going to host 200 different websites? for that you'll need a dedicated server probably. actually 200 sites without too much computation on the serverside, like forums or simple portals and blogs, can be hosted on a pentium 3 pc with 512 memory. but if you want to be serious about it and go the extra mile, either buy a normal rack server, something like Dell PE1435SC should be anough, and Dell PE1950 should be really grand for this.
or just rent a server on a farm somewhere - you'll have it up and ready for you with all your needs inside already.

Yeah, you need 515 minium for any database.

Get a brand name server, a dell or hp/compaq - unless space is in short supply, get the tower model, not the rack one as its easier to replace/upgrade the components in them and they are cheaper

Xeon is the way to go, and you probably want 2 to 4GB. I wouldn't get a rack server unless I was planning on adding more.

yeah, dont use 3b though, as windows will waste it, either use 2gb, which i tcan handkle iout of the box, or 4gb, which it can handle either by using 64 bit, or the /3gb and /pae boot options
