Hi!
Search for some old pentium 3 machines.
Some goodies are in them sometimes, but don't take HP and Dell ones, because some of them are not made to be dissmantled(and have very different mounting points and power connectors)
You can find some at some garage sales for cheap prices
If you want to go even further, search for some P3 or early socket P4 ATD boards
Been building and dismantling and modifying junk and good pc for the last 7 years!
Specs:

Intel i5
Asus P7P55d
AMD Radeom Sapphire R7360 Overclocked edition
16 gb of corsair vengance
Enermax clipeus case
Logitech g27
Asus VE248H monitor

Pentium 2 or Pentium 3, or a Celeron from the 98 days. Maybe also an AMD CPU that is the equivalent to a Pentium 2 or Pentium 3 or Celeron.
