You can't fit a 15k RPM SCSI solution into $7K ;) Some of us are on a budget!
I just bought a pair of Dual Opteron, 4GB RAM, LSI 320-2X RAID dual channel with 8 36GB 15kRPM seagate drives. Each one of these boxes set me back just over $7k, including onsite warrantee.
They totally blow away the Dell Dual XEON with external 14 disk RAID (also 15kRPM drives, manufacturer unknown) which also has 4GB RAM and a Dell PERC 3/DC controller, the whole of which set me back over $15k.
