Quickbooks File Server Build

We are looking for a fast server to host our company files for Quickbooks.  The server would also be used as a general file server in our domain.

We were looking a Dell Servers and would like a fast RAID array.

The office is smaller with just 5 people accessing the Quickbooks files.  The primary concern is speed.

We were looking at the H710p Raid controller with SAS drives on a PowerEdge T620 server.

SSD would be nice but they are really expensive.

With just 5 users any of the Dell servers should be fine. No need for SSD.

Quickbooks itself is NOT a fast program.  Doesn't matter how fast you make the server, you won't be happy with Quickbooks performance (in my opinion).

For 5 users, as stated ANY server should be fine.  You also need to keep in mind the network hardware you use, the files you're accessing and the programs you're using - these (and other factors) will ALL affect your overall system performance.
