Leeland,

For colocation, this is a good price.  You can go to www.webhostingtalk.com 
  to get a solid idea of what providers charge, and
of who out there is a bozo. You might look at some local providers  
like netriver.net, adtaq.com, forest.net, and spry.com. I bet they
would all love the chance to win your business.

Most companies I know doing colo charge $75-$150 per rack unit for  
customers wanting to
colocate individual servers. One question to ask your Colo provider is  
how much power you're allowed to draw in that 1U. Make sure
they have a good answer to this, which should involve plugging your  
server into a Kill-A-Watt and measuring it's d raw before they put
it into a live customer rack.
