Then you will have to plan out how much space you will need.

Nice idea, but warranty and standards are really why every one buys from Dell/HP and doesn't build their own, or be left out on their own by that sort of company.

VMware is linux any ways, so you can at least be happy with that.

Here is a nice place to start. Keep in mind you'll need to add hard drives and an OS, so you'll be scraping very close to the budget.

VMware ESXi is bloody expensive and will break your budget. Fortunately you really don't need it; Linux KVM is powerful and featured enough to accomplish what you want to do. So you can just throw on Debian (or CentOS 6 if it ever comes out) and have a ball. You could also do RHEL, though that too will be an expense, may break the budget, and all you're really paying for is technical support. In your environment, finding in-house Linux technical support shouldn't really be a problem...

I didn't think it was that bad.. till I looked at the Dell license you can get for the server; $2500 a year. Though you can always go for the free version and live with no vmotion, 4 vcpu per VM and 255GB of RAM per VM.
