Have a look on some working whitebox configuration:

Choosing the right motherboard you can have a working network card storage adapter.

Get a Quad-Core CPU, 8 GB of RAM and a couple of NICs > this should be enough to run a couple of typically configured Win2k3 and WinXP VMs.

Be sure to check out the linked sites above for a supported whitebox motherboard, storage adaptor, etc.
