Server Hardware Recommendations

Can anyone recommend physical hardware servers to buy from VMS applications? I know most VMS manufactures recommend and sell their own, but overall the majority are overpriced standard intel based servers.

Any recommendations on brands and models to use? Anything to look out for or keep in mind?
