More information than it's worth collecting and analyzing for, as you say,
a "low traffic application".  If you really want to do a thorough capacity
projection for this application, plan to spend at least a day on it.  It's
a lot more than I'm looking to do on a Saturday night in my spare time.

Personally, I feel it's overkill for how you described the expected load of
the system.  You can pretty much spend as much time as you've got analyzing
your capacity needs.  But, with a hardware budget of $1200, you probably
shouldn't.  :-)
