Decommissioned server-grade hardware is usually always cheap on Ebay and similar sites and can fetch you a decent build for a budget gaming computer. There are various times of the year that Ebay gets flooded with these kinds of things when major job sites are either fully decommissioned or get upgrades and the old hardware is generally either given to workers for free or sold for cheap. A friend of mine lands up with tons of free hardware monthly due to this kind of thing from his job.

Keep an eye on Ebay and watch the market to learn the patterns and flooded times if you are interested in upgrades or other systems in the future too. You can land up building a decent Bitcoin farm for extremely cheap if you are into that kind of thing as well.
