For Qbus SCSI, that number seems to hover around $250.  I can't build
one for cheaper than that, and I doubt anyone can.

I do have more than one Qbus SCSI card, but far more Qbus CPUs than I
could ever afford to so equip.  Also, I have plenty of Unibus and one
VAXBI for which SCSI is far more expensive, so I keep dreaming of a
way to do that, but I never get as far as implementation.
