Alright so it's time to open into the Dedicated market. All equipment is owned, and I'm looking at moving 20-40 servers to start but before I finalize anything, I'm interested: What would you pay for the following (monthly?)

Dual Xeon L5420

16GB RAM

1TB Hard drive (options to upgrade/add more drives)

100Mbit Unmetered

Location: Jacksonville, FL

Purely interested in gauging overall interest for the 5420's. Is this something people would be interested in if the price is right?

I assume GoRACK? and yeah no more than $70. The power these things pull wont make it economical imo
Yessir Gorack. I'm confident I can make it work for $70/m on my end. It's a matter of people buying I'd think.

The only problem is there is a ton of these machines coming off lease, hence the market getting quite flooded with them!

Any other benefits included with the server?

I'd be more interested if the amount of ram was a lot higher.  I've seen a couple of high-ram offers in the past week which just seemed astounding.  That said, I don't have an immediate need for it.  I would have jumped on it a few years ago when I was doing stuff that wanted it.  I'd also be interested in seeing prices for storage expansion.  Currently I have an OVH SP1 and will probably get another one when I need more capacity.

Double disks would be great 
Yes, good point, I didn't bother mentioning this because the original post said that more disks would be an option, but of course the pricing is relevant too.  I'd almost never want a server with no RAID, i.e. multiple disks.  I do find it annoying that OVH has no economy storage servers: they have a 4x2tb box for the same price as two 2x2tb boxes.  Above that level, Hetzner has some more attractive plans, but I'd probably want to colo instead.

No kidding. I've seen them as low as under $40/mo these days loaded to the brim with RAM. They make for a good machine, as long as you don't need high CPU power bursts.

Well I would go a little bit lower, from $45 to $60. At this time, 100Mbps just isn't enough, even though it's unmetered.

As far as hard drives, we'd be able to offer upgrades to multiple 1tb drives in software raid, possibly 2tb drives as well -- running numbers to see where we could realistically sit at 2x1tb drives as a default configuration, but it's def an easy addon to run.

Native IPv6 is something we would be able to offer if there is enough interest in it as a bonus.

Appreciate the feedback! Definately taking into consideration feedback, so keep it coming :D
