All the mentioned versions will work. The issue is the resources you'll need.
Depending on the number of processors and memory ammount you can choose one.

Agreed, it all depends on the amount of resources you think your websites are going to use. These consist of:

Application pool size and number of application pools.
Number of concurrent connections, (estimate).
