Thanks at first.

Would any one give me the advice as reference?

I will purchase  ArcGIS 10.1 Desktop Advanced version and Maritime charting solution, and I need the hardware and software spec. required for that it works well.

1. How many cpus for my database system should I have?
2. How large should the minimum RAM be in the server?
3. I will install MS Windows Server and SQL Server.  They must be English version? Or I could install Chinese version?
    Do operation system and database software system work well in Chinese environment(Server and client)?
    Does Chinese environment affect any database operating?
4. In the past thread I posted, does the problem I met caused from Chinese environment?
5. If I install SQL server 2012, what version should I have? Standard or Enterprise?

The higher in my office will make the decision if giving me the budget to buy ArcGIS 10.1, according to my report.
Before 15th, Mar.
Would any expert leave me the answer to my question? I really appreciate.
Thanks anyway!!
