Well, the E450 and U80 top out at 4GB.  An E3500 can hold 4GB per system
board.  I think that's the smallest system you4d be able to use.  The
same is probably true of the E3000, but the E3500 has yummy
firbe-channel goodness.

Unfortunately, to get that much memory, you're going to need to buy a
lot of CPU capability, as well.  That is, unless you want to run
Solaris/x86, in which case some of the larger Dells would work for you.
