Usually RAM is the primary bottleneck. Second comes the I/O speed of the harddrives (although there is plenty of that available too - we simply make sure of that).

Surely anyone could just say that, but we have a good reason to actually make sure that that's true: if our VPS's would lag because of things like that, our customers wouldn't be happy and leave elsewhere. We obviously wouldn't want that to happen. Moreover; I can assure you that our customers are happy with our services.

The only way to find out about the speed is to give it a shot really (you can just get the free trial account and see what it's like).
