I bought my Ultra-10 for $300, $322 with shipping to San Francisco 
from http://www.solarsystems.com , that was with no monitor but it's 
PCI based and despite my flat panel not working with it, my 17" CRT 
works fine and I put a removable hard drive tray in it, put in a 
30-gig Maxtor (IDE) drive off the shelf and I'm running a dual boot 
"Solaris-8(sparc)" and "RedHat-6.2(sparc)" and using Linux's "SILO" 
to boot the Solaris8 OS, works great.
