$86 is just the MB/CPU/RAM:



The existing case/PS/monitor/keyboard/mouse would need to be reused.

If a new small case/PS/MB/CPU/RAM combo is required then this might work
(just add memory from newegg above):


A complete thin client for $94 is a really amazing price, but I don't
know how well a ZOTAC NM10 works as a Linux client.
