We use HP DL380s for all our server needs. They are excellent servers and have good maintenance cover as well.

We have used Dell Poweredge servers which are quie good.

Make sure that the memory and disk specification is correct.
For databases you should normally use RAID 1 for SQL transactions logs and RAID 5 for the databases.
Another disk to store the web software (depending on size of the web app).
