best print server solution


I have a client which is an architectural company, they have 3 plotters and several network printers. I also have an old server that act as a print server (windows 2000), i need to replace this server and i would like to know what would be the best choice, i need a server or device that allow me to share the printers (like a print server) but that is able to handle heavy duty printing. If what i need is to buy a server with windows 2000 what is the most important part, RAM? CPU? Hard DRIVE?

I hope my question is clear

HP JetDirect would be a more cost effective solution than the server route - also make sure that the connection is high bandwith - ideally 100Mb network connection as a minimum, if the connection is slow, nothing will improve performance, failing that try a RIP box - these are expensive, but have the performance - they are used a lot by printing and graphic design firms - the JetDirect would be the best starting point tho.
