DB Site overloaded

im running big DBMan based site, with about 30.000 daily visitors and +500 simultaneus users at peak times. Server load go very high and crashes server a lot.

Specs: Dual P3 1Ghz, with 1GB RAM and 18GB SCSI-5 10k Drive, full dedicated to this site.

DB size is about 260kb for index file, with 40Mb of external text files that are included on queries.

Should convert site to PHP + MySQL? C compiled Scripts?

For that type of traffic and file sizes, you'd definitely want to be looking into MySQL instaed of flat file.
