Anybody Have A Favorite Dell Rep?

I'm in the process of getting a technology quote together for a new athletic facility they're building out here in Sunriver, and to save myself time and trouble, I'm just probably going to order through Dell (generally, if I had more time, I might build them all myself, but at this point, it's going to be cheaper and easier to manage if I buy them all from a single point, and Dell is the cheapest). I've heard you can get the best deals on multiple system purchases (I need four desktops and a server) if you call in an order.

Does anybody have somebody there that they've dealt with a bunch in the past that's been easy to work with so I have an extension? Basically, here's what I need:

Desktops:
-512 Megs of RAM
-Celeron 2400 (at least)
-CD/Floppy
-15" LCD (might by that at NewEgg.com, as it's cheaper)
-Windows XP Pro
-Office 2003 Small Business Edition

Server:
-At least a 2.5ghz Celeron
-2x80gig Hard Drives in RAID 1 Config
-Windows 2003 Small Business Server with 5 CAL
-Tape Backup System

Anybody have any ideas on who to deal with? Or just call their number and have at it?

Update at 11:41 Talked to a Dell rep earlier today. She didn't speak very good English, but after answering a few of her questions, I'm apparently being transferred to a higher-level account rep who can work with my budget a bit. Hopefully he/she will speak better English.

Update on 5/21: HP ended up giving me a great deal, and the sales rep I talked to was American and actually spoke good English. I never even heard back from Dell, so screw 'em -- I'm getting an HP.
