Comparison of Discrete Klystron produced RF to two-beam produced RF for large accelerator systems

We compare here some technical aspects, and with it the cost, of constructing a 500 GeV center of mass Linear Collider with either Discrete Klystron or with Two-Beam (relativistic Klystron) technology using X-band for the main linac. A comparison concept is applied to CLIC and NLC technologies, but not to a particular CLIC or NLC design. The methodology created can be extended to higher c.m.s. energies, if the reader so desires.
