for desktop i would rather prefer (and did that many times) to run some 
fast computer headless and have at least 1 (but more preferably) X 
terminal made from 486-Pentium with old, but supported graphics.

i made cut-down X terminal distro with NetBSD 1.5 (takes 25MB total, with 
all possible X servers), works fine, sound supported through nas.

most old PCI Matrox cards are best for that, all hardware 2D acceleration 
works like it should, supports high refresh rates and gamma correction by 

and with X terminal price equal to about 0+monitor you may have many of 
this for single computer.
