I'm looking for a fairly cheap server to purchase and colocate in a canadian datacenter. It'll be running virtual machines ("Virtual Private Servers"), I need to run:

2x Mac OSx 

4x Windows (XP, 7, 8, SERVER)

8x Linux (Centos, opensuse, ubuntu, etc)

I am ideally looking for less then $3000 cost, any suggestions?

I don't have that for sale but off the top of my head if you run like ESXi on it that would be plenty for your needs!

Something to note, running OSX on anything but Apple hardware is against the EULA. It's also a pain in the butt to install and subsequently keep updated.

Not to be taken seriously, ever!

As said, if you want to keep it within the EULA then your options are limited.
