    In my experience running large Mysql driven site, CPU, RAM and Disk were most important. But again if bandwith sucks nothing will makes the page load faster. They all important.
    When dataset is not that big and you don't need to cache much data, you can do without much memory. But then you would be ralying more on CPU and fast IO.
    On the other hand caching more data in memory will allow you to get by with slower CPU and IO. So they all important but final configuration depends on specific of the project.

    Yeah, I always look at CPU, RAM, HDD size and type. And also what speed connection. Be sure to get a 1 Gbps connection. If its going to have lots of traffic make sure it will give you enough bandwith too. Some are only 10TB some are un-metered.

    Get a high frequency CPU, with a large amount of RAM, SSD Disk's will also help

    if you have large Mysql and slower vps due to high I/O we will suggest a SSD based server to increase speed and reduce disk I/O

    You will need a large number of simultaneous connections or if I call nodes. In shared web hosting, the # of nodes is around 20 which means 20 max connections per second can be made. In your case, that # will be huge.... Everything huge will be required. more ram, more CPU, more bandwidth...

    How much traffic /day you getting?
