    Have you taken a look at dell or rackservers.com? Personally I always use dell as it suits what I need but it depends on what you are looking for really.

    they provide supermicro servers.

    We also buy from Dell when they have some interesting offers but those 2 shops allow you to order the solution you really want.
    (try to get AMD64 at dell..)

    Is it possible to get AMD64 at Dell?. I thought they only have Intel CPU in their servers/PC.

    Dell's service in the Netherlands is absolutely horrible. We are still waiting now 30+ days for them to come by and replace a power supply on a 38,000 Euro server.

    If you want to build your own server I recommend Chembro.

    Sorry to hear about that but have you called them directly?. I mean you have to call them every day or something like that to get some attention from them.

    Could you imagine if I told my customers they had to call me every day to get my attention? I think that when we choose to buy a Dell 6850, pay over the price of a luxury BMW, and receive a DOA server with a bad PSU, then are waiting over 30 days because the 'part is not available', that is unacceptable.

    Dell service is beyond ridiculous, this happened to us last year with a 2850 PSU we never even got the replacement part from Dell, we just sourced some spares from a dealer. Dell warranty is useless, good luck getting a floppy drive out of them much less anything else.

    We only buy IBM servers now. Dell is history, even if they're 30% cheaper, you get what you pay for in this world. We called IBM last month to come out and INVESTIGATE about a failed RAID system in a 2.5 yr old xSeries, they were on site the same day with controller, drives , motherboard, and even SCSI cables.

    He wasn't able to retrieve data as in fact 2 disks had failed however he was prepared for everything, and was willing to work. Dell won't do that, they'll just write you off if you call them for support.
