My initial thought:
Caching servers, e.g. varnish
CDN to host static assets
Powerful DB/MySQL Servers (optimised)
Somewhat powerful HTTP servers
Potentially even load balancers.

At the moment, we are running on two dedicated PHP servers and a dedicated Master and Slave MySQL server.
We ran into limits today, and haven't really reassessed our infrastructure in a while. So we are looking into this, to try to make it more efficient.
We do use a CDN, use Varnish for the front page. Varnish on the forums is a little trickier, because it affects user counts which everyone loves.

I see, that makes sense. Do you have issues on big days like yesterday with users posting as soon as an announcement hits?
I run a college football board and on NSD we had 2,000 last year and the site went down when an announcement came because everyone decided to respond as soon as it came down. I should be good this year as I have invested in upgrades and optimization.
Thank for the info!
