HP ProLiant ML110 Generation9 Server

Hi,
 
 I am considering HP ProLiant ML110 Generation9 server with eight 2.5"  hot plug HD bays.
 I see the information on http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetHTML.aspx?docname=c04545452.
 However it is hard to find a specific HP part number that meets my requirements:
 (1) 1 CPU
 (2) 8 2.5" hot-plug bays in front

 I also want to know that if I purchase a ProLiant ML110 G9 server, can I install my own LSI MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i - storage controller SAS 12Gbps along with Seagate ST600MX0052 600GB 15000 RPM 128MB SAS 12Gb/s 2.5" Hard Drives Bare Drives?

When I purchased HP Proliant ML 110 G6 server (with no hot- plug) in the past, I was able to install my own LSI MegaRAID controller and my own SAS HDs.

Based on the conversation with HP, it sounds like I will be better off getting HP firmwared HDs.
Since their HP branded 600GB SAS 15K 12Gbps HDs are about $850 (thought I found some new ones around $400  in marketplace), I am debating whether I should go with white labeled INTEL server so that I can get whatever part that I like.
HP firmware HDs when on HP controllers yes but you were going to put the disks on an LSI controller.
