New Server for CM 5.0

I need to buy a new server that is support by CM 5.0. I have looked at the supported platforms on CCO, but all part numbers listed for servers are discontinued by HP, including all the new G5's. I know this is just a part number change and not that the actual model is no longer available, but here's my question. As long as a match the exact specs the server should be supported, correct? I'm looking at buying a new DL320 G4 for a subscriber at a remote site. The specs are below but it does not match Cisco's listed part number. This was never a problem with CM 4.X, but 5.X seems a little more picky. HP servers are programmed/embedded with their part number. Does the CM 5.X install look for that part number or only the specs?

-HP ProLiant DL320 G4 SATA Server

Intel? Pentium? D 920 (2.80GHz/800MHz 4MB Level 2 Cache 2x2MB) Processor

2GB UB PC2-4200 1x2GB 2RANK Memory

Intel? 82801GR Integrated Serial ATA Host Controller (embedded)

HP 80GB SATA 1.5Gb 7,200 rpm 1" Hard Drive

Embedded NC324i Dual Port 10/100/1000T Gigabit network adapter

DVD-ROM drive

SmartStart & Insight Manager

Integrated Lights-Out Remote Management

For example...When trying to order Cisco's listed part numbers you get the following:

Part number 410785-001 / HP ProLiant DL320 G4 2.80GHz/4MB Server, has been discontinued

as of 28-November-2006

Re: New Server for CM 5.0

Have you tried HP Part # 434769-001 ?

This is the latest part number I have for the HP Proliant DL 320 G4 SATA Server you specified above.

Please note this server will run Call Manager 5.1(1), Not Call Manager 5.0

I checked the HP web site and this part number is orderable.
