    Reasonable Prices for Servers?

    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:

    i7 940
    12gb memory
    2x 300gb WD velociraptors
    100mbit port
    3000gb transfer

    Dual Xeon Quad Core 5335 or 5345 or equivilent
    16gb memory
    12 - 16x 500gb SATA-II HDDs
    100mbit port
    5000gb transfer

    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.

    These would be considered high end premium servers, plan on spending premium $$ for these.

    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 say about $400-$500~ more or less per month. When you get to those specs, its almost time to start thinking about colocation.

    About $300~$450 for the first, and about $800-$1200 for the 2nd.

    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..

    The servers with the such features are believed the ones from the last generation and as the reason they are very expensive and that is incomparable with your $250 budget
