I do L3 technical support for many unix HW platforms (Sun, HP 9000, IBM, Etc) and I support thousands of machines so I have a vey wide perspective. Out of 20 HW  calls , 19 of them are on sun machines. And almost all of them need one or more parts replaced. 
It is my personal opinion that when you want your computer to work all the time you should not buy a sun box! The new sunfires are more breakable than the older enterprise series. And the sunfire boxes break in spectacular ways that have no solutions from even sun themsleves!

Either you've been exceptionally unlucky or I've been exceptionally
lucky 'cos I haven't had a single problem with CPU/mem boards or power
supplies. You do have a UPS don't you ?
