I am looking at a couple different systems from various providers, I was wondering if you could tell me about what I should be expecting to pay for these types of systems:
2x 300gb WD velociraptors
Dual Xeon Quad Core 5335 or 5345 or equivilent
12 - 16x 500gb SATA-II HDDs
I am thinking something like $250 or something a month for the i7? I see a lot of 920's going for around $200 a month, but they typically have 6gb of memory with a single hard drive, or 7200rpm drives vs the 10k velociraptors
For the other system i've seen anywhere from say $500 to $1200 a month or so.
I've checked around, most offers are around $400+ per month. Why would you want to use dedicated box for this? I think buying one system with this config and finance it then colo it would be a good option.
At least you'll get to own the system after you've paid it off

I would be also interested if you could find any good deal on this. If I had somebody who would take care of the server I would definitively go with colo.. However since I'm a developer (no server admin) I need to have some reliable server support.
So I can understand that you're looking for some reasonable price to cover that too. However I didn't find anything like this under $400 so far..
