    If this is Insight can you PM me a quote number or something so I have that to play with?

    Re: Find me a server

    With such a low budget, I would recommend looking at Dell or looking at unbranded machines.

    Otherwise you will end up with a machine that will not be up to the task in too short a time.

    The disks for the hp one are http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpr...6K%3D%26M%3DHP http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpr...6K%3D%26M%3DHP etc...

    HP Proliant Dl360: £1307.83

    http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpr...%26200259v%3D2

    Processor £745 (rebated afterwards)

    3 x HDD drives drives @£135: 405
    upgrade to 4GB Ram: 170

    total cost: £1882.83

    for a 2x Dual core 3GHz, 4GB ram, 3x 72.8GB drives

    Not a bad deal.

    I just had a fiddle with the Dell server site and specced up a 1950 with 2 x Dual core 5130 Xeon processors, 2GB Ram, 4 x 73Gb Hdd's, silver support (next business day onsite) for £2291. You would likely be able to get this much lower direct or via a reseller rather than the website.

    Nope, this was via CSE (and a very similar quote via European Electronique). I always find the prices on Insight to be about 15% higher than both of these other suppliers.

    .
    We just got a dell with 2x dual core xeon 5310 with 4gb ram, 4x 130ish SAS hdd, dual psu, raid 5, 3yr warrenty etc etc etc. Basically as above but about 1.5 times better for about £2500. As i said, its *extreamly* difficult to beat dell for price.

    Yeah just phone them up, we managed to get about 1/3 off doing this, which equated to around £1000 so not to be sniffed at!

    Re: Find me a server

    Last month I got 2 DL380's 2x3GHz Dual Core, 4GB Ram, 3x 72.8GB,Raid 5, 3yr warranty for £2337; and 3 DL360s (same spec) for £1900.

    I swear by HP at the moment. They've got some great quality machines. Not really a fan of Dell.
