Actually we have the Dell one:

That could be one option.

And the other would be to see if HP would sponsor a server with atleast
the same specs or better.

So 1-2 Quad cpu, 16GB RAM (or more), 1-2 2TB disks (preferably raid 1
for system and storage (multiple isos), raid0 for build data, maybe a
SSD for the ISO build if possible, and preferably a iLO card

the thing about lots of ram, is so we could build some on tmpfs, and
then I guess we wouldn't need ssd.
