SCCM Server important are fast disks and a fast network connection.
Also keep in mind that a Primary Site, or Secondary Site server with Distribution Points stores are Package or the source files two or three times.
With Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL, MDT, WAIK, SCUP installed i've in use 80GB of my C:\ Partition. SCCM is installed on D:  - So better take bigger disks.
In your case we're talking about less than 500 Clients, right. I think the hardware should match those requirements. Also don't forget to calculate with a Client and User growth.

A Client can only be assinged to a Primary Site. So if you would configure the Secondary Site Site code in the Client Option it would mention that this is not possible. Clients can use Secondary Sites Management Point when the Client is within the configured IP Boundaries of an Secondary Site.
I use Management Point, Distribution Point, Software Update Point and PXE Service Point on my Secondary Site Server. Also you could install a State Migration Point

Thx,

That was the thing that was unclear to me.

so the clients are assigned to the Primary server and take there data from the secondary server.
