Default Cheap System Challenge

I'm trying to build the chepaest possible desktop system for poker that needs to be able to run 2 party skins with poker tracker and playerview or gametime+ running simultaneously and support two monitors. Assuming I take care of the video card myself, whats the absolut cheapest system I can buy?

Dell Dimension 2400 is pretty cheap, but I would sitll need a monitor (I think) and a video card. Any ideas? Lets see what the cheapest thng we can come up with is.

I'm also hoping someone can give some good advice here. I was recently thinking about the same thing. I'm sick of playing on this big screen, low resolution, low refresh rate laptop. I think I really need a desktop. I think that the $299 desktop is good enough, with the exception of the monitor. I don't NEED a 2001fp, and I think that even the 1200x1024 (I think?) is good enough. I saw that they have some "analog flat panels" and I'm not sure what's the deal with that. I always thought that all flat panels/LCDs were digital. Maybe someone culd explain that to me.

The only thing im worried about with the 299 model is the 256 RAM. Will that run eight tables, PT, and playerview?

256 is pretty much the bare minimum I would even run XP with. Spend the 50 bucks or so to bump it up to 512.

Agreed, going from 256mb to 512 is prolly the cheapest upgrade ever if you count speed/$.
