I'm no 'xen hardware expert', but the quad-core Core 2 Quadro's are looking very attractive indeed. As a matter of fact, their price is falling dramatically (especially during August when AMD are due to release their own competing quad-core offerings)...

I am planning to use an E6600 quad in each of my new Xen boxes (along with 8GB of RAM and raid 5) - pick whatever motherboard you hear good experiences for. (I cannot name any off the top of my head - sorry!)

But basically, with HVM and some very sharp prices, Intel is where you should be looking right now.

I am looking for recommendations on a good server for Xen.  I will be setting up Debian installs for many clients.  I understand about the requirements of ram and disk space, but am a bit confused about what cpu / motherboard to look for.  I will be using the latest version of Xen and want something in the $1500 - $2000 range.  What is the best Xen hardware for the money at the moment?
