Well, at Hetzner in Nuernberg you can rent an EQ8 for EUR89/month. It
comes with bandwidth, 1.5Tb software RAID, 24Gb RAM and a EUR149 setup
cost.  That's an Intel Core i7, so 2.6GHz quad core plus
hyper-threading, meaning 4 to 8 concurrent processes. 

I've got four of the slightly smaller EQ4 running as backend mailservers
handling up to about 3000 concurrent SMTP connections per box. Is that
what you call a popular level?
