I'm thinking about setting up an own torserver. I want to use a computer

much load should I expect on an average day? What hardware requirements
would you suggest for such a server?

My guess is that you will certainly not run into any problems. I run tor on 400 MHz AMD K6-II (a generation before AMD ATHLON), with 128 RAM and a 100 Mbit connection to the internet and it goes fine (Average load ~ 1.00). You must of course know in advance that the volume of traffic is huge! My server's in + out traffic is ~30 GB /day ! Of course if your server resides at a university's campus you won't have any problem with bandwidth usage...
