My experience is RAM is most important, followed by disk speed/reliability.

If you have frequent tape backups, don't worry about disk so much.  If you 
don't have frequent backups, hardware RAID that mirrors the disk(s) may be a 
good idea in case a disk blows out.  Otherwise, you will lose all ticket 
data, new or handled, since the last backup.
