To answer Richard

There are about 7 unique sites that, ideally, I would put on the same host.
But if push comes to shove, there is only 1 of them that is really the
resource hog. It isn't too bad with bandwidth (25 GB/month was the heaviest)
but on a shared virtual server at the existing hosting company it was eating
up more than 10% of the CPU/RAM so it got moved to it's own VPS.

Unfortunately, I've been trying to get specific numbers on the CPU and RAM
usage but have not found anything concrete as yet.

Thanks to everyone for suggestions thus far; they've been a great help. I'm
going over them one at a time now...
