I'm not sure how that's even possible. A quick glance at newegg.com:
$17.99 (+$6.13) [recertified] socket A motherboard
$39.99 [oem] AMD Duron socket A processor
$13.99 (+$4.99) 128MB RAM
$71.97 (+$11.12 shipping) = $83.09.
This is assuming you have an extra case, power supply, and video card to
throw in it. What do you consider a "small disk drive"? Newegg has a 40G
for $39.99 + $5.64 shipping. Yeah, so small disk drives seem to be half
the price of the cheapest possible "box". Feel free to enlighten me, I'd
love to know where you shop that has a system under US$50 !!!!!
