Last time I looked (few months ago), an i386 1U box could be put
together for approximately 200USD more than the equivalent
mini-tower. This was for low-end Intel hardware (Celeron, but probably
also applies for regular P3, too). I think the cost came out to around
600USD, but I could be mistaken.
Linuxtoday had an article on building one of these some time ago, and
once you've found an appropriate motherboard model, everything else is
a matter of surfing Pricewatch for low-profile DIMMs and fans, and
finding a decent case vendor. I think I looked at both Jinco and Case
Depot for cases.
