Almost everything I own, except my main rig, is made out of used parts, parts I've personally fixed, or a garbage rescue stuff.
For example, this is my "new" office keyboard:

Bought a boxfull of defective A4Tech stuff awhile ago, and this one is just a leftover KB which I always put on a backburner. Got to replace a couple of transistors to get my optical switches working again. Not bad for $1.50.
Alongside this KB you'll also notice an LG IPS monitor, which also required some work on its scaler board, and an adjustable laptop charger which I got as a present from my neighbor (now it's serving as a monitor PSU and thanks to a dedicated 5V2A USB port - a phone charger).
Outside the shot there's also an AsRock DeskMini 110, which I bought as "dead" for $20. Needed BIOS replacement and some repairs on VGA port, and now it's a decent Skylake workstation (only RAM and SSD are brand new, the CPU was a present from my office neighbors).
I have boxes of this stuff, probably a good dozen of random spare motherboards (latest one in my collection is an AsRock Z370 Pro4 after some mild soldering, which needs to be paired with a decent CPU), 3 boxes of broken PSUs, giant stack of various GPUs (mostly Radeon 200-series and GTX 700&&900-series), bunch of laptops, laser printers and AIOs etc.
