    Try Worldwide Trade Corporation in MN. We had good luck getting parts from them at good prices. There are other vendors too. Google is your friend (so is eBay). We pretty much got all the parts for a 590 (except the chassis) for less than $1500.

    One thing to be very careful of is the connectors for the slide out card box that holds the motherboard/CPUs/Mem/etc. It can be difficult to ensure a good connection when the box is reinstalled. We ended up doing a lot of problem chasing because our card box was not seating properly (error was CPUs not found). Following the fault codes in the IBM maintenance manual resulted in us replacing all the stuff in that box, but to no avail. Turned out to be a bad connection of the box to the backplane. Once the card cage is seated you should check from the top that the floating connectors on the backplane are properly seated.
