    Need a new box, HELP!!

    I have outgrown my current box and I am in need of another one!!

    I am looking for a dual core box but am not sure who to try. My current host who is awesome, XTOWEB, has priced me a nice dual xeon box but its a hair out my price range.

    I am wondering if anyone can suggest a vendor with decent prices on dual xeon boxes. my requirments are pretty straight forward

    dual cpu's
    2+gb ram
    120gb or larger sata drive
    100mbps port
    2000gb bandwidth

    help is appreciated as I will be doing this next week, so the hunt begins

    Hi,

    How much is your budget? Managed or Unmanaged?

    Thanks

    Dual Core, or Dual CPUs?

    SoftLayer.com has both of them, although I'm not sure if it would fit into your budget. If not try LayeredTech.com

    You can get that price with LT if unmanaged is ok with you.

    LayeredTech
    LiquidWeb
    SoftLayer

    If SL is in your budget and they have what you need, I have yet to see a bad (or even neutral) review of them - they've all been very good. Give them a shot.

    I suggest LT for unmanaged or LW for managed.

    softlayer is an excellent provider. Although if you are happy with your current provider I would express your concerns about the high pricing and see if they can cut you some slack. It is hard enough finding a decent provider these days, see if you can stick by them if at all possible

    If it is a no go, Softlayer is an excellent company, I have had the pleasue of doing business with them for a few months now and they are great.

    Are you sure your current provider who you are happy with wont provide you a deal? Have you asked them yet?

    Rather than losing a customer I would think they would be willing to work with you a bit.
    Can't we all just get along
