RAM: 64gb (or 128gb for reasonable price)
1 HDD + a couple SSD disks (total capacity 768 Gb - 1 Tb)
Traffic doesn't matter. Need not more than 2-3 Tb/month so 100mb shared is ok
and <= $250 per month.
a reasonable Setup Fee isn't a problem.
Any ideas guys?
For 64GB, you'll need to look at the Xeon E5 series which are more expensive, as Xeon E3's and desktop processors only support up to 32GB of RAM. Or if you only have modest CPU requirements, the new atom CPU's pack a pretty good punch and support up to 64GB of RAM exactly.
If you only need the 1 CPU and smaller SSD's will do, your budget should be reasonable without a setup fee required.

Try the AMD CPUs instead of Intel, you can use the low end CPUs with 64+ GB of RAM and stay within your budget. A single 1 TB SSD will typically be cheaper than 2 x 512 GB SSDs.

Your budget should work just fine assuming you don't need management included. You should be able to find some fairly beefy configurations with 64GB in the dedicated offers section. The only thing that will really shoot up the price is the SSDs.
