Hardware Suggestions?

We are currently running an sql database for our ecommerce operations and would like to migrate it up to a fallover cluster. What hardware is recommended for this.. We are trying to keep the budget in the 5 -> 10k range? We have access to alot of used quipment as well so if there is something out there that is a few years old that would handle this job please let me know as well.. As I understand we will need 2 identical servers, and then a external storage array, with raid 5 configurations, etc. Any additional info or points in the right direction would be great! Thanks! >SM
Could you inform about:
1) Database size.
2) Number of user. and any other relevant performance information. Luis Martin

There are 2 databases. one is currently 318.44mb and the other is 358.75mb They are basicly just shells right now until we make the application live.. At which time the users will go from currently about 4 up to 100+ and keep growing from there.. Thanks. >SM
