consuminghate @ 04:58 pm: New server recommendations
I recently acquired 1U of datacenter rackspace and I was looking to buy a box to run my web/mail server (currently colo'd).

I'm not hosting anything crazy, just a couple medium traffic web sites (apache/php), a cvs, mailserver (qmail) with a few users, snort, sql, etc. I'm hoping to stay under a grand (with drives). Raid would be nice.

Any vendor/configuration suggestions?

I was actually looking at the 8676 but hadn't ever used them (Only IBM servers we've had were AS400s).

Thanks for the rec., I'll give the xSeries more attention.

Yeah, they're Good Stuff. PCI-X, lots of storage bandwith, lots of memory bandwith... pretty hard to beat. I've been pretty happy with 'em, in fact, thinking of replacing my personal server (Dell PowerEdge 600SC) with a x336 running OBSD4.
