I'd suggest MicroATX kit, in the MicroATX cases. It's reasonably  
efficient on space, but also fairly standard and a surprising amount  
of the cheap crap is MicroATX. There are smaller systems such as the  
MiniITX stuff, but it seems to be rather less generic so the prices  
are higher.

You *might* find that you can dry-run the load-balancing with a  
single PC running Xen. If it's a single-CPU box, the LVS might act a  
bit funny as the load will of course be all on one CPU, but you may  
well get some experience and useful answers without the expense and  
bother of getting more machines.
