That would be very limited. The some total of what I have is the guts from my X4 rig (CPU, mobo, RAM, HSF, and wifi card), a 160GB HDD from my laptop, and 2 fans.
Spare bits usually get sold off to fund new hardware, with no job until now I had to recover some of the money somehow. I've still found GPU PPD an affordable way to do things (ignoring electric cost), but SMP is definitely worthwhile
