"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Well ideally fiber optic but since we dont all have loads of cash to toss around 100Base-T ethernet will do the trick quite nicely. Yes, you can run all of the servers on one computer but the cpu load (especially with lots of users) is significant enough to decrease the performance of the servers. Its best to distribute the servers onto different computers.
