Not enough details.  a 2port KVM?  4 port?  8 port?  16port?  USB or PS/2?  Or a combo of USB and PS/2?  With sound or without sound?

2.5" enclosure - what kind of connection?  eSATA, USB2, Firewire?  for what kind of drive?  SATA?  IDE?

   ... have you looked up the items on sites like NewEgg.com?

2 sticks of 8 GB DDR2 RAM - buffered?  ECC?  this is expensive memory - I'd suggest for memory you go to one of major vendor's web sites to price it out - crucial.com / kingston.com

KVM switches are mad cheap -- expect 10 dollars for each port.
2.5" enclosures are also mad cheap -- $10 on eBay scores you a nice USB2.0 enclosure
2 x 8GB memory chips are useless in most computers, as they won't work... and you'll have to run 64bit Windows (or Windows Server Enterprise Edition) to see anything more than 4GB. Don't buy them.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
