How to best use a new server for Colffusion 9 performance boost.

I have Coldfusion 9 running on Server "A" and it uses MS SQL 2008 R2 which is running on Server "B". I just got a new server, we will call that Server "C". What is the best way to utilize this new server to improve performance of my Coldfusion 9 application?
I am using CF 9 Standard edition but would consider using the Enterprise in the future if necessary.

Tell us the specs of each server. Depending on the Specs you might be better off using the new server for SQL.

Also how many websites and what is their volume like?   (number of hits?)

Do you already have a development server?   If not, that would be a good use for one of them so you are not building on the production server

Sorry, I also have another server which is my Domain Controller. I guess we can called the Server D. Here are the specs

CF Server: Intel Quad Core with 8 GB RAM 640GB 7200rpm HD
SQL Server: Intel Quad Core with 8 GB RAM 640GB 7200rpm HD
DC server: Intel Dual Core with 4GB or RAM
New Server: Intel Dual Core with 8GB RAM

I use the DC Server as the development server.

Right now there is one application which is not finished yet. We will have about 20 users. However I anticipate adding additional applications and users within the next few months. I just want to get a jump start of the performance.
I think the new server will not help you at all. I would stick with a single server for now and if you want to use some kind of clustering in the future you should build your application with that in mind.

The new server is not even close in performance to the CF server now.  
What about using the new server to improve up-time if there should be a failure on the CF Server?
...or failure on SQL server.

Tomarsell1,
Now that you know the specs of the new server do you still feel I can benefit from a multi-instance, clustered server approach?
