external temperature or humidity sensors?

Hey. Does anyone know of any inexpensive air temperature or humidity sensors that I could connect to the computer? I'd like to pipe the results to rrdtool and graph the data.

I'm sure you can find something like this over at

They have some external temp monitors that will display output on a small LCD display that fits into one of your 5 1/4 bays.

Now, as far as piping the data through software, I'm not sure how you would accomplish this.

Those are good prices, but I'm looking for something that will monitor external air temperature and humidity. I guess I wasn't very clear
