It really depends on what sort of performance you're looking for.  I
bought a secondhand Compaq Armada m700:  Pentium-III 1ghz, 256MB RAM,
20GB disc, ATi graphics, 1024x768 display, 100mbit network and lucent
56k modem.  It cost me the equivalent of about $500 USD, but you'd
probably get it a lot cheaper if you're in the US/Canada or UK/Europe.
Same here. Mine is a 500 or 700 MHz though I think, a little less stats, but still works fine. I'd say expect to pay about $300 for one, if you can find one. The compaq armadas seem to be pretty good for linux.
