What a deal!  The only thing is, you'll have to quickly spend about
another hundred bucks upgrading the (64MB) RAM, especially since this is
sure to be one of those motherboards whose "onboard video" has no RAM of
its own and steals from system RAM.  Also, expect a lot of non-standard 
parts and case fittings, this being a Compaq.

You also need to pay shipping from Texas.  Given that, buyers might want
to request that they not bother sending the bundled 15" tube monitor,
reducing the shipping charge, and instead splurge a little more cash on
a 17" LCD monitor locally.  (Tube monitors are so last millennium.  ;->  )
