If you find one for a fair price, consider yourself a lucky man :)

I spent (if memory serves) something like $300 and got a single IBM CGA, but for my clone XT's with CGA I've resorted to leeching off the RGB monitors (used by Commodore etc) which have the DIN connector. You can use the Commodore 128D CGA cable (not hard to find, or make your own) and often they work perfectly as a CGA display (1084S definitely does, some others may need certain switches changed, and some may not support the signaling). Just passing that on in case you don't find one and need an alternative.
