All Apple parts carry a premium on them. You're going to spend triple the price for parts vs what you could buy a working 2 yr old Mac Pro for.

But, you could head over to iFixit and they'll likely have the tear down along with all the part numbers you would need to build that model Mac from the ground up.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
