How do these prices sound?

Hi there,

I was wondering how do these prices for dedicated servers sound?

Dual Intel Xeon
Dual 2.4GHz Processor
Dual Seagate 73gb SCSI 10,000rpm hard-drive
2048mb ECC DDR RAM
RedHat Linux 9
Either cPanel/Plesk/DirectAdmin
700GB Quality Hurricane Electric Bandwidth
Semi+ Managed Services

For $199 per month with a $249.99 setup fee.
How does this pricing sound for the above server?
*Eg: Is it too cheap? Should I offer a P4 3.06Ghz instead?

Also how long do you think it'll take to sell 42 of these servers?

Thanks for all comments.

hmm, maybe try lowering setup fee or make it so setup fee is lower if paid yearly?

Yeah. I was planning to get have actually $0 setup fee until I'd sold 42 servers, and then start charging a low one. I think you're right, $249.99 is a bit high, maybe only $99 setup - and also have it so you pay a tad more but no setup fee? What do you think of this?

Although, about the control panel I'm not sure. cPanel is expensive, until I have over 2,000 licenses, when it becomes only $20, otherwise anything from 10 to 88 licenses and it is $42.50 per license per month. Plesk is also pricey, which I don't like too much. I like Direct Admin due to their pricing, and I can offer Direct Admin totally free. Ensim Pro and Plesk are both the same price actually.

Any comments on the issue about the control panel and setup fee anyone?
