What is there to suggest? What will you be doing with this server? Lots of memory, lots of storage, seems like you are set.

If it's just displaying html pages, & accessing mysql, I would buy something used. 1gb memory, hard drive size would depend on what you are storing, but 500gb, a 2nd for mirroring/backups.

I'm fond of older Sun servers, I have 2 Netra X1's installed in our local shop, & a V120 (for SCSI). One for our ticketing system, & a 2nd of our email server.

What you have listed in your 1st post is, in my opinion of what you have described, is extreme overkill. You could save a TON of money buying something much older, much lower stats, & used. I would suggest getting new hard drives.
