Does anyone recommend any reliable online companies regarding the purchasing of high quality servers at fair and reasonable prices?

thanks

RackmountsEtc: sales@rackmountsetc.com or 'rackmountsetc' on AIM. (Ignore their website; it's still under construction.)

I'll second both Mfjp's and Erica's. I've purchased many thousand of dollars worth of hardware in the past from rackmountsetc (not for dinix) as well as from dell. Both were great relationships.

supermicro all the way. beats the heck out of dells and generics. they only sell cases and motherboards though, so you will have to find a company that builds supermicro boxes <wink> =]

I would suggest racklogic.com Not only are there prices great, but they have a design by which two servers can fit into 1U space. Drop them an e-mail.. they are always very helpful i think.

That's a supermicro case, anyone who sells supermicro has that same design

My vote is for Dell.

If you buy at the end of a fiscal quarter you can get very good deals. Just today I got free processor upgrades, $300.00 in rebates, 20% off the servers and a free unmanaged switch. You have to call and get a sales rep though--they can beat the online deals.

I'm sure Dell is trying to get rid of some inventory. Intel just cut chip prices by up to 35%, so Dell's probably selling the old stuff at rock-bottom prices in order to make way for the new chips.

Well, I wouldn't call what I bought old stuff but that is the reason why they are offering processing upgrades...you can get the higher end processors for cheaper prices everywhere because of the introduction of new chips. Here is the new price list:

Having used Supermicro products almost exclusively, I can't recommend them highly enough.
