Just my two cents...
the "barebones" boxes such as Shuttle XPCs seem to go for about $300 for
a recent model ($250 for obsolete chipsets). This is to be compared with
buying a box and motherboard ala carte ($50 + $70; Pricewatch prices.) A
very good machine in the U.S. should now cost you:
quiet CPU fan $20
This does not include audio hardware (Midiman delta 44 is top-notch
and costs 250), nor monitor, keyboard, & mouse...
You can build a machine that runs 10% faster than this, but it will cost
