How much money did you spend on your first PC you built?

Back in 1999 or 2000.....

I think it was about $900 not including the OS. AMD Athlon 1.33 GHZ, Geforce 3, 40 gig 5400 rpm hard drive, 256 meg of ram, 1600x1200 monitor, cheap 400 watt psu and case combo. Some cheap motherboard made by a brand called "PC Chips." Luckily the computer worked totally fine for years and could play just about any game out at the time at maxed settings. I would never skimp out on the motherboard or power supply nowadays. That beast was loud though.....
