If I combine several Visual FoxPro tables onto one PC, will performance be faster, slower or similar

We have an in-house system developed in Visual FoxPro, and all the tables are distributed in different PC's, we are trying to put them together, in one same PC's with a big HD and fast processor. Do you think the performance will be faster, slower or similar?

I would buy an application server like Windows 2000 Server and configure Terminal Server. This will allow you to run dual CPU's and faster SCSI drives. Of course, you should also beef it up with memory. All the processing will be on the Server, which will greatly improve client performance. Windows 2000 Server costs around $750 and requires client access licenses as well as Terminal server licenses but should be cheaper than buying all new PC's.
