It's not as uncommon as you might think, especially for the business line computers ie Dell Optiplex or Latitude.

Here are a couple of examples under $150 from Pacific Geek (DISCLAIMER: I have never purchased from these guys so I have no idea if they are a good vendor or not)

or search eBay for "Dell Optiplex"


Or putting a parallel card in an existing machine, something like this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-011-_-Product or this

Adam, Thanks for letting me fly the big plane. That was exactly the kind of "jolt" I needed. I've not been flying much, and my poor flying when I do fly DLG has made me want to fly less. I've been slowly putting a jet together, in hopes that'll give me the "thrill" that I got when I started flying DLG. Flying that TD ship in that little park rattled me a little, but it was cool.

No problem man, It was fun watching you get so scared. You were like a Freshman seeing his first naked girl Thanks for all the help and advise.

Here's my issue, Charles. A year ago, I flew at LEAST 3 days a week, if not more, and I was showing steady improvement. Lately, I've flown VERY little, and I'm now back to where I was, or further back, than I was a year ago. That's considerably more frustrating than when I was just learning. I'll shut up now.

That 700 is "almost" as big as you, Vu!

OK - let's hope your work schedule provides some relief soon, and you can fly again on weekends. Don't forget that many of us have so much more time to practice. We're also trying to hit a moving target, since the MoBros and others are always getting better. Calling a 9:59 in Poker was radical last year, and now it's commonplace. And then there's Donnie lurrking in the background. Those dudes are good!

Another example: 2 months ago, I managed to get 70% of the top score and placed 4th from the bottom. Last weekend, I got over 80% and placed last. We're swimming with sharks, so let's keep swimming.
