comment Gigabit switch - Brand names or other magic cost components
Cheers. The client would probably balk at it being a "desktop" switch, sadly. Can I say, though, I want one for my lab!

Thanks. Yeah, I get that, I guess that's the heart of the question: Are there major features there that the simple scenario in question really justifies the cost of?

Cheers! Do you happen to have a link to that model (or a similar one)?

Thanks! That probably should have been a corrolary to the question, I think I'll add it -- basically, what kit would people recommend for the simple scenario in question? :-)

The Crucial memory I linked to is ECC. Specifically, it's "DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Single Ranked • Registered • ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 72"

@John: Thanks. The Crucial RAM I linked to is indeed registered, and they do have a money-back policy.

Thanks. The supplier isn't HP, but they may well be buying through some HP-approved intermediary (hence the cost). Technically the machines are under some kind of service agreement, but I don't know that it's HP's any more (they're over five years old).

My bad, the question read "PC-3200" when it should have read "PC2-3200". Just caught that. Fixed.

See, this is exactly the kind of thing I was thinking might be the case. But the ProLiant's spec sheet says it has DDR2 slots, not DDR slots, and the overview page says "PC2-3200R DDR2". Just added that to the question.

comment who is responsible for server monitoring?
This is at least two separate questions, both of which (IMV) belong over on serverfault.com. It's also a "how long is a piece of string" question.
