Moving from SQL 2005-2008 (required by SIMS b4 Oct 2010)
In view of the move to SQL 2008 this year, what sort of increase in resources is SQL 2008 going to need over SQL 2005?

Have a look at the new hardware spec... www.sims.co.uk/hardware, should give you an idea. Generally this is the perfect excuse to get a shinny new server.
As for actually comparing them, have a look at the MS requirements
Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2008

Can you make it clearer in your title that this only affects SIMS please?

Surely everyone should be moving away from SQL2005?

I'll change it just for clarity.
For general reference see here:

Until Microsoft stops making money, we'll keep updating SQL even though there is a newer, better, uber version on the way - or so Mr Microsoft wants us to think
