Keep it.  There will come a time where you will turn it on to clear your head
and take a trip back to a simpler time......it's therapeutic!  Find room for it.  I
would think finding room for the monitor would be tougher.  If you really
need to get rid of it, find someone on this list who would like it, maybe 
even return it when you want it back.
I still have my first computer which was a kit (actually soldered the parts
on the board) which I built in the early 80's and my first SUN (an IPX)
Both still work fine.
