If You Build It, Give Me One

Here are the builds for the workstations I mentioned below.  Prices are US, from Newegg.  I did the Australian pricing at Techbuy - a lot more expensive for the memory, but quite good otherwise.

The Opteron config is more expensive - and slower - but includes 16GB of memory instead of the 12GB on the Xeon.

Xeon Build $2304

Asus 7ZS motherboard $499
2 x Xeon E5410 (quad-core 2.33GHz) $550
3 x A-Data 4GB FB-DIMM kit $420
Lian-Li V1010A case $270
Corsair 750W power supply $130
2 x Seagate 750GB SATA drive $240
Sapphire 4850 512MB video card $195

Xeon Build w/24GB $3264

Substitute 6 x Kingston 4GB FB-DIMM $1380

Xeon Build w/32GB $3085

Substitute Tyan S5397AG2NRF motherboard $440
Substitute 8 x A-Data 4GB FB-DIMM kit $1120
Substitute Corsair 1000W power supply $270


Opteron Build $2322

Asus KFN5-D SLI motherboard $299
2 x Opteron 2352 (quad-core 2.1GHz) $628

1 Just out of curiosity, what are you storing your just-under-1TB of blogs on? (I was just over at the mee.nu site) Some RAID array, I would think.

Also: what sort of server layout? Rack-mount, stand-alone?

2 That's 1TB of bandwidth, not 1TB of stored data, fortunately!

Between mu.nu and mee.nu, we do more than 2.5TB a month in traffic, but there's less than 100GB of data in total.

We have two quad-core Xeon servers, each with 8GB of memory and a bunch of disks.  Rackmount servers housed at Softlayer.
