max bandwidth consumption of php/mysql 1.7 server?

p4 1.8 512mb ram ide drive
or
athlon 1700 512mb ram ide drive

if a site is entirely php/mysql like a forum (in my case its a bunch of test scripts and user profile pages), what do you think is the max bandwidth it could consume with the above specs per month?

I don't think the MySQL/PHP affects bandwidth so much as it affects system resources.

I have only one server with Intel Celeron CPU (300MHz), and 128MB RAM, it has 2sites on it. The sites are getting very good traffic, and all the sites are php/MySQL.

Doing 4GB per day average, and server load is usually under .20

MySQL has no effect on external bandwidth. The information is piped between Apache/PHP and the MySQL server running on that system, which only consumes RAM and CPU resources. It's difficult to say without knowing the amount of traffic you'll be receiving, but I would estimate that it wouldn't be overly large unless you're serving massive page views.

www.surebaby.com used to be html. Frontpage, I think. When we changed it over to PHP, the bandwidth dropped like a rock. It now does something like 1/4 of what it was doing, with more total pageviews.

As everyone said bandwidth would be totally dependant upon the number of pages accessed and the size of each page.

Given the choice of the two sets of specs you list I would go with the one that was cheaper as they are both basicly equivlent.
