I picked up an OptiPlex 7010 SFF from PCLiquidations ($100 with shipping), it is running great! Chrome is maxing out the memory (4GB) with 2 monitor, 2 windows and ~10 tabs open, I plan on upgrading to 8 GB this week.
Adding a second hard drive (2.5" SSD) required a creative solution, I taped it to the power supply using double stick foam tape instead of removing the DVD drive.
I tried to add a graphic cards (GeForce GT 710 passive cooling), that was not successful. One HDMI port worked, the DVI port did not and sound did not work. Passive display port to HDMI adapters worked just fine, my monitors only have HDMI inputs.
I love Chromium OS! I just don't need a heavy weight OS like Windows 10. I did load windows on my second drive and can do dual boat by switching the boot sequence in the BIOS.
