I did a quick search on the web for what it would take to build two  
systems.  Here is the initial SWAG.

SuperMicro CSE-825S2-R700LPV U2 Rackmountable eATX Case (700W PSU,  
Silver)		$750 x  2 = $1500
Sony DRU190A 20X DVD Rewritable Drive - 20x DVD±R								         $40  
x   2 =        80
Dynatron H53G 2U CPU Heatsink For Intel Xeon											 $50 x   4  
=      200
Memory  - 2GB DDR2 667 ECC Fully Buffered											 $80 x 16 =   1280
Disk -  Western Digital Caviar RE2 WD7500AYYS 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB  
Cache SATA		$200 x 4  =     800

Here is a SWAG at what we'd need to put two 8-core 16GB systems with  
logical mirroring 750GB storage.  The cost is $3860 from the above.   
I'd round up to $4000 for tax, shipping, etc.

We might be able to buy other systems for a lower  price point.  I've  
rounded to be conservative on cost.   I would Run Linux with Xen and 4  
VM's per server which would give us 8 server instances to work from.

Thoughts welcome.
