I am looking for a decent linux server dedicated with 8GB+ RAM and comparable CPU Spec. There are too many webhosts out there, any recommendation on a cheap but decent host? turnkey seems cheap, but is it good?

Once you're over a gig or two in RAM, it's probably more cost-effective to buy a cheap server and colocate it. Slicehost, for example, is a great host that I highly recommend, but their 8GB servers cost $450/month - and that's pretty inline with what I've seen elsewhere.
Considering reputable companies in my city let you colocate a 1U server in a good datacenter for ~100/month, you'd pay for your server very quickly with the monthly savings.
