Let’s look at this combination:

  1. Samsung SATA CD/DVD Burner $20 (+ $8 shipping)
  2. HP ProLiant ML150 G6 E5506 $850(+$43 shipping)
  3. RocketRAID 2300 PCIe 4x SATA $120 (+$8 shipping)
  4. Crucial 3x2G ECC DDR3-1333 $191 (+ $6 shipping)

Total price in cart: $1178.97 + $42.90 shipping = $1,221.87

So the premium for the Supermicro is about $220.

Is the hotswap worth the $220?

Oh, and the Supermicro will need a video card: VisionTek VTK Rad7K 64P Radeon 7000 64MB for $35. So really, it is a $250 premium for hot swap.
