And can you also estimate how many slots each one can hold all together?
If yer just running a CS server, any of those will do fine. What's more important the server connection and the type of content you'll be providing (custom maps, map uploading, textures, sounds, ect.)
In the end, though, you just have to fire things up and see what happens. Start with about 20 slots, and if things are really smooth, bump it up (if you want that many shmucks on yer box). If things are laggy, get rid of some slots and try again. It also depends on how you like to run your CS games.
When I ran a CS server, I only put up 12 slots during normal times, because 6vs6 felt like good teams to me, even though my server could support 24 easily. My DoD box ran all 32 slots well, and I kept it at 32 for most games because DoD is great with lots of people. It's up to you.
