Go to Digikey and put TCXO into their search box and poke around.

How many do you think you would sell?

Probably way too much.  The desktop PC business is very cost sensitive.
Servers have more markup but lower volume.

There are several costs:
  Extra cost of the components
  Design time
  Supply chain stocking and paperwork.

It's probably better to use an IO card.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
