http://www.pcliquidator.com, I think theyve got mobo/cpu combos for about $15-$20.

$35-$40 if you get the mobo and cpu separately I think.

http://www.retrobox.com has used PC's pretty cheap too, shipping on an old PII system will cost as much as the system does.

Man, cheap parts, http://www.pricewatch.com

You cant go wrong. I remember seeing 386 cpu's on there for a buck 6 or 7 years ago. A little pricey, but still...

Ebay is your best friend. I picked my Dual HP Kayak PII x/350 for like 24.99 with $7 shipping. I put about 15 bucks into it,

This thing kills/ownz anybodies computer on this forum in a raw read/write benchmark. SCSI rules


And it kills a p3 800mhz in a benchmark.
