Where to Buy Cheap, Cheap PCs?

I need a really cheap PC to play around with. It doesn't need the best of the best. I'll probably only access it via console. I've looked at eBay, but haven't seen any great deals yet. Anyone know of a place that sells surplus PCs but don't require you to buy in bulk?

I find it best to keep an ear out for someone upgrading, just try to get there old PC. If not you may be able to find one at a thrift store.

May I ask what you're doing with it?

What sort of specs? PIII? P4? what? Or at least equivelant of what? I work for Directron.com and we do a lot of work for some school districts, and we buy back their old computers to sell off. A lot of PIII, 667, 733,933 machines around there. Not to mention I might have pretty much all the parts for a spare machine.

I'm looking for something around the 1-2GHz range, 256-512MB ram. Video can be integrated, sound isn't important. IDE support ... SATA isn't required. Must have a NIC ... or a PCI slot so I can install a NIC. I don't need a monitor. Was looking at directron ... that 933MHz PC might work out. A little more processing power would be nice, but not required.

I also don't want emulation of any kind as this will eventually become a personal file server once I get done testing out what I want. I already have a file server running Slackware that has a bit over a terrabyte of data storage ... I just need another one, and while I'm at it ... try out something new.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
