If your WAN connection is not redundant, I would probably pull that in using a router connected to a pair of core switches (your 6006s). i don't know the restrictions as far as size/infrastructure of where you want to put the servers, but I would probably buy a 7206 to bring the WAN connection into the core. 2 6509s to host your server distribution with a 16 port -gbic card(ws-x6416), buy the appropriate gbics (ws-g5484) and a 10/100 48 port card (ws-x6348) for FE support. The 6509s would have sup2s with MSFC and PFC. With this setup, I would probably leave the core layer-2 and do all the routing via the layer-3 devices at the distribution level (WAN and Server). Buy the maintenance that best suits your needs and any additional modules that you want or may need. It doesn't appear that you are buying enough modules to support 1200-1500 connections. you may want to look at deploying access switches (ws-c2950G-24s) throughout your server farm and patch them into the distro pair utilizing GigE uplinks. Also, look at how you want to provide HA and redundancy to your servers/network and apply spanning tree settings such that redudnancy/HA are not issues. You could also configure Load balancing and failover via HSRP.
I hope this helps. Please feel free to contanct me with any questions pertaining to this. Good Luck.
