Components can be very pricy. I use Campy Centaur group on my Pinarello CX bike and this didn't come cheap. There are some decent build kits on www.cyclocrossworld.com
and you should check them out even if you're not planning to buy them so you can get an idea what the kits consist of. Just to give you a hint I think that it'd be nice to equip a classic Italian CX frame with some nice Campagnolo components.
However, if you have some leftover MTB parts (front and rear deraileurs, cassetes, chanrings, cranks... whatever) you'll do just fine. Yet the vast majority of the MTB components out there is Shimano and this is not a problem if you will combine it with Shimano shifters, brakes and so on. The problem is that if you try to use components with non-Shimano groups; they might not work properly.
If you are patient enough you can buy parts (either peice by peice or as a whole group) on eBay. Sometimes some very sweet components come up there for a low price.
If you're on low budget, stick with some Shimano. Shimano will be generally cheaper than Campy. Campy on the other hand offers yo rebuildability that no otehr manufacturer does (it appears that you can order just about any part for just about any component from just about any time period from Campagnollo-I can't confirm this though). Yet Campagnolo is a bit pricier.
