Approximate cost of BL870C blade with enclosure

Hi,
My project is trying to move some old systems to Integrity BL870C blades, and are in a very initial planning phases. I contacted some sellers but not getting a good response, they want more details and they want to send someone for analysis but I don't want to give any false hope to them, may be the finance won't approve our purchases later. So if you have any rough figures of the cost that will help .. any currency ( UK £ is preferred ), checked in some sites with one cpu one blade is coming approx £5000

Planned kit:
set -1
BL870C - 2
c3000 enclosure -1
cpu's : 4 dual core 1.6 Ghz
mem each : 24 GB

set - 2
BL870C - 8
c7000 enclosure -2
cpu's on each blade : 4 dual core 1.6 Ghz
mem each : 24 GB

Not concerned about the cost of mezzanine cards or other accessories etc ..

You need to clarify the OS and the level of support....

The OS can add a huge amount to the cost.

Hi ,
HP UX 11i v2 will be used on all servers, and only 2 servers will use Integrity virtual partitioning.
