Hi Doug,

It's hard to advise specific hardware without knowing the scale or mechanism
of the application you want to run on it. Additionally other hardware
options may also depend on any SLA you have with a customer you are
providing (i.e what level of uptime are they expecting etc).

Personally if the most important factor is that the server is cheap, I'd go
with an entry level HP server with 3 years warranty as suggested in my
earlier post, although as I say, you 'get what you pay for' in terms of no
proper hardware RAID, non-swappable SATA drives, no redundant PSU etc.
