Most of mine I got through a Sun reseller. Some of mine I got off of
Ebay.  You should be able to get them a lot cheaper than than retail web

However, even full retail seems like it was a hell of a lot cheaper for
a v40z than a DL585. :)

That's true :) One of the reasons the compaq's are expensive
is they supposedly use a quad board, even for the dual machine.
Which means a different opteron chip as well.

I don't know this for a fact, it is just what one of their
"ahem" sales guys told me.

The IBM machines are seem reasonable though.

Consider Sun's new line of Opterons. They've been around for a couple of
years under the Newisys name. I'm using dozens of them for web servers
and PG servers and so far both the v20z and v40z have been excellent
performers with solid reliability.  The pricing was also competitive
since Sun is looking to break into the market.

Really? I am not being sarcastic, but I found their prices pretty sad.
Did you go direct or web purchase? I have thought about using them
several times but....

A lot of people have been having a devilish time with Dell hardware lately. It seems like the quality control just isn't there on the Dell servers.

Thing is, some companies are required to use 1st-tier or at least 2nd-tier vendors for hardware; they won't home-build. For those people, what vendors do others on this list recommend? What have been your good/bad experiences?
