Dell has a comp on sale on their site with a monitor for $299.00 or you can look here (http://www.dellauction.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/CategoryDisplay?cgrfnbr=31456090&cgmenbr=31308269&gallery=)

As I recall, some of the 8k series Dimensions had RDRAM. Before purchasing, I'd try to find out what flavor of RAM was installed or figure it out at Dell. It needs a RAM and HDD upgrade, so this detail is important.
BigC's alternate suggestion is one route, the other is to check out the Dell outlet. I purchased one of my Dell's from there. As I recall, I was basically getting the installed software for no charge when I priced everything out and the system was new.
PS - I did a followup check, see here (http://www.4allmemory.com/search/dell/dimension.cfm?q=Dell+Dimension+8250). It does appear RDRAM was used. As you can see, an upgrade would be pricey and 256 MB is a little lean for XP....
