I'm looking for a dedicated server provider who can provide the following:
2GB ECC Ram
2x 250GB SATAII HD
1000GB + Monthly Transfer
At least 2 Tier1 Providers, and a minimum of 1 other either Tier1 or Tier2 provider.
Additonally, the key component I need is for the above to have a setup fee of $100-300 with a monthly fee below $110. Anybody have an idea? Preferably Chicago or New York.
Have you looked in the advertising forums? With that budget, I am certain there are more than a few hosts out there. Not sure about the high setup fee and low monthly fee but if you talk to them directly, I'm sure they're willing to work out a deal.
My vote for Chicago goes to Steadfast and New York, voxel/voxrox.

I think it is possible to get the server in that price, but you will need to have at least 2 or 3 year contract. I think that the best to contact web hosting company in the area you are interested in and ask for 2 or 3 year contract with such monthly payments. I think that it must work for you.
Like ServerPoint says, a big contract term will help you for a company to set up with that monthly price a server for you. Also thinks maybe in 1 year you will need to upgrade hardware for better performance thats can be the worst of the 3 years contract.
