The one problem I have with Dell now is that they're offshoring all 
their support options.  That's one reason why I would recommend Penguin 
Computing--the support is here, their boxes have gotten quite favorable 
reviews, and it's a good value for the money that you spend.

You can get a dual Opteron box that'll take at least 8GB, which should 
sufficiently address any IDE disk needs.  Mine has 4GB, serves 25 
clients, and runs like a top.
