I have a 2000 user base in Exchange 2007, with 6 databases, the biggest one is 300GB. In our ccr environment, we have 2 MB, 2 HT, and 2 CAS servers. What would be the hardware recommendation for this setup?? How much memory and CPU's should each server have for optimal performance?  Thanks in advance!

Mailbox database size isn't so much of an issue apart from backup recovery times, but as you have a CCR cluster hopefully you'll not need to fo a full database restore, I presume that the servers don't share a common UPS or other critical infrastructure.
