Solved: DO I NEED A new Server?
My current server Windows 2003 R2.
Intel Xenon CPU
X3370 @ 3.0 GHZ
3.00GHz, 4GB of Ram

It's a Dell Server with about 750GB of RAM.

----------
We have about 40 computers in the office now. We run almost everything remotely through RDC (remote desktop connection) through the local machine. The server hands out policies. The server also is a print server, and handles as a backup to about 2 computers (the ones with quickbooks on them and some faxes and scans). We don't run any applications off of the server. Everything is the local machine. All they do is run the RDC, go on the internet, and some printing. There is no email either.
-----------
Please compare the system above (Dell) to the one Below (Dell) and help me justify to the management if we need a new server or if we don't.

I'm confused. Where is the server that the users remote into?

If you are doing all of that on that old server it must be slow, is it not the reason why this has come about? I would not have thought you would need to justify it if there are performance issues.
