I've been using mod_php for the longest time on all my servers mainly because they are low traffic and high resources so I've never run into a problem on performance. However now I'm looking at running a decent sized website (700,000 monthly impressions) on a small ~320 mb server. I think it will handle fine using mod_php but I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with both.

Although you might be able to pull it off with mod_php for this amount of requests (I can't say for sure since I left mod_php a long time ago). I'd suggest using fastcgi because that way you can a bunch of backends and have your frontend do some load balancing.
