They sell used systems, but the prices are low enough to buy 'em for parts.

You never know just what you'll find...some old, some not so old.

Pick up a copy of Computer Shopper and check out the Web Buyer section in the back.

Try checking your newspaper for any computer shows that may be in the area. The ones that are here in Texas are uber-cheap (couldn't find the oomlaud for the u ).

Your local computer hardware store might be a good option to look, depending on what parts you need and how bad you need them. The locals tend to boost hardware prices.

Newegg.com
Compgeeks.com
Tigerdirect.com
Zipzoomfly.com

Are all good places to browse.
