I've been looking at servers and lately I've been thinking about everything I'll be running on my server and what my requirements really are before I just go out and buy something.
I don't really have the budget for multiple servers so here is everything that needs to be crammed on the box.
Apache, MySQL, Scalix, SVN, DNS, and Mongrel.
I do a lot of free hosting for other developers and I have about 20 sites or so. No one really uses a lot of space, its mostly just to test scripts or do demos for clients, school, whatever.
The SVN gets hit the most with everyone checking their projects in and crap. It doesn't take up a lot of space, but it does use a lot of bandwidth.
I was thinking something around this range.
Core 2 Duo, 1 or 2gb ram, 100mb port, 2x160gig HD, ~1TB/month running either CentOS or Ubuntu (I'm still not sure).
As far as hosts go I was looking at one of the following.
Gigenet, Superbservers, and Wiredtree.
I'm looking in the ~150 range I guess. I don't make any money from this box so price does come into play. I almost went with two corenetworks boxes but they never replied to my email so they went out the window real quick.
Check out www.Netdepot.com as well. They are owned by Gnax and we have been with them for a few years now. Their support is there and the network is very solid. They have a Duo Core 3.4Ghz for $159/mo I believe. But right now, they are running a special when you can get that same Duo Core for $105/mo if you pay a setup fee of maybe $150. Which is definitely worth it.

From the options given by OP. The BIGGEST advantage GIGE has is there mitigation Capability against DDOS> As well as they customer support. Wiredtree i dont know. SUperb Network is good they will KILL YOU on support
So from your choice i will go for GIGE
