Computer Hardware Filter- where to find older, cheap computer parts...

So recently I became the proud owner of an old (had a pentium 2 in it) server case which fortunately has a 10 bay rack. I am stoked! This behemouth is perfect for the home server I've been wanting to build.
Here in lies my question, where can I find older hardware for this box? I do not need any top of the line, or even currently produced motherboards or chips for this data repository. I've checked out newegg but prices there don't seem to well, ideally I would like a motherboard/chip/memory combo from a salvaged or refurbed system.
Any other places I should check out? I would ideally like to have this accomplished for under a hundred bucks, or less. If I can't find what I am looking for, I may head out to microcenter but its a hike.
Tldr: cheap, old, used hardware websites to purchase equipment.
