Need to purchase new server for our environment?

hi guys,

we've got a remote site where there are around 50 users. They currently have an AD server and a file/print server. The total size of the file server is 200gb. It's not a heavy user site and in terms of expandability, they don't need something out of this world. Enough to manage file storage and AD activity.

We need to renew these servers to better onessoon.

I was thinking of getting a semi-decent server which can then have the Esxi hypervisor installed and creating two VM's on there?

Or possibly having two separate rack mounted servers?

Thanks
Yashy

Any suggestions at all on hardware etc?
