If you have the used computer as inventory with cost, and you add the components with cost then yes you are doubling cost.
Create the items, zero cost, zero qty
use inventory adjust, set the adjusting account to the cash bank account, and lower the computer item
Check the cash account regster to fimd the value of the adjustment, that is the total amount for all the part items.
Then create and use a dummy vendor to buy the parts from. You will have to guesstimate the cost of each as long as the sum, total does not exceed the adjustment value you are fine.
