How much are you looking to spend altogether? I have another post where I am selling a lot of what you need, but it is already assembled into a gaming rig. I might be tempted to parcel out some of the items. here is a copy of my other thread:

I have a Gaming Rig I am looking to sell. It is in very good condition and used barely for 8 months. The case has a few minor scuffs from being moved around. Specs are as follows:

Case: Thermaltake V9 Black Edition http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6811133074
PSU: Rosewill 600w SLI Ready http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6817182032
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 w/ stock fan currently installed (never OC'd) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6819115206
Mobo: ASUS P5-N nForce 750i SLI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813131232
RAM: Kingston 2x1 GB DDR2 800 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6820134488
GPU: 2 x XFX Geforce 9800 GT in SLI mode http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814150323
CD/DVD Burner: Samsung 22X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6827151175
HD: 500 GB Hitachi 7200 RPM SATA 3.0 GB/s http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] chnologies
OS: Choice of Windows XP Professional 32 bit SP2 upgraded to SP3 OR Windows 7 RC 32 or 64 bit.

The motherboard includes everything pictured but the cheap cooling fan that came with it. don't know what happened to that. I'll also throw in a OCZ Vendetta CPU HSF if you want to remove the stock fan and OC the CPU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 20vendetta

I have an extra PS2 Kensington keyboard and optical Logitech USB mouse I can throw in as well, if you really need them.

Cost to build this system was just under $740. I will sell it for $500 OBO, plus shipping. I am located in Metropolitan Detroit if anyone is interested in local pickup. I'll knock off another $50 to keep the hard drive and you can install your own HD + OS.

Hi esquire, iam not looking to spend over 200 bucks for each rig. I really want low end stuff. The most demanding thing ill probably run will be Counter strike or something. Core 2s are too much for me A p4 or X2 will be more then enough. Thank you though i really do appreciate your awesome deal for your rig.

I have an intel board + 1gb + 3ghz p4 ht for $65 shipped. Not sure what the model is, i could get it for you when I get home. It had that Q6700 in it that I sold you, so i know it works. The cpu and ram were both in a dell optiplex gx620 I had that the mobo went out on, tested cpu and ram in another optiplex and they work fine.

are you looking to build some machines to build them... or are you wanting to get some cheap ones for use?

I've had alot of good luck w\ cheap dell optiplex systems on ebay. GX620's, 320's, 745's all have pci express slots... and there are literally tons of them on ebay at cheap prices. There are alot 745's w\ low end 1.8 c2d's for $50-150.

Best buy has an emachines package with celeron 420 and 19 inch monitor for $299 this week. Newegg.com has an HIS 4670 video card for $59.99 with free shipping after promo code. This video card will work with a 300w power supply, which is what you get with many oem systems.

whhaaaa.... I really like the 4670 ^^ it's perfect for lots of systems that don't have a large psu.

yeah i really wanna build a second system; using old parts that give me memories; i was an enthusiast in the p4 and 6600gt era. I want a sorta mobile comp i can customize bring over to friends houses and plug in to a big tv and play older games on emulators and also great pc games like GTA, diablo etc. Those small dells are pretty perfect--there like the size of an xbox 360. I know many ppl have spare parts they laying around. I am also helping my friends who need new comps for school

in the end i want about parts for 3 rigs. each with 4gigs of ram about a 500gb hdd's, decent video cards. Decent Cpus. AMD 64 X2s are perfect.

Don't know if you're still looking but I just threw up a post for 3 core 2 duo complete machines. I'd sell you that lot for $600+shipping. I'd work with you to get what you want (i.e. small cases, etc)
