Asterisk hardware recommendations.

I was thinking of building a small asterisk machine for a non-profit.  I was reading the hardware requirements, and the site lists a pentium 4 3ghz with 512 megs ram on a 20 gig HD for an office that runs 60 did numbers, with 100 phones in two offices to handle all the call routing.

I want to run 10 phones, will a dual core 1.8 atom processor be enough to run it? is what I had in mind.  A small SSD, 4gb of ram, the 64 bit version of Asterisk.  End phones will most likely be cisco 5108G.

II have a similar box at home, it will run just fine those 10 devices. Not sure what you meant by cisco 5108G though. Can you please clarify.

Will you connect to the PSTN with ISDN or POTS circuits?

5108g are IP phones that will be used for this project.  SIP will be through SIPGate, so niether really.
