Yes, well, let's include the cost of a power supply, hard drive, case, etc.
to keep the comparison honest.

The amount I gave was everything that was required to run DESCHALL. You
*don't* need a monitor to run DESCHALL. However, you'll have a *lot* of
trouble firing it up on a piece of PCB with no power, memory, or way to
load the program.

If you *do* have a dual pentium system (less monitor) for $458... sold!
