That's the funny thing, manuals are kinda not hard to find for x2. Not to long ago, someone was selling a mint manual of x2 for only $15 and there's one on eBay atm for around $24 but I'll skip that one and just wait for the right price to come.
Based on my collecting history and the items I own, in terms of collecting CIB (and mint, for that matter), the ease (odds) of finding your pieces is:
Plastic Clamshell Games: (i.e.- Genesis, PS2, DS)
Game > Case > Insert Cover >>>>>> Manual
Cardboard Box Games (i.e.- Some Genesis, SNES, NES, GBA)
Game >>>>>> Manual > Case
Proprietary (or at least unique) Jewel Case (i.e.- American Saturn, Some PS1, etc.)
Game > Jewel Case >>>>> Insert (Back Cover) > Manual (Front Cover)
Original Jewel Case: (i.e. U.S. Dreamcast, PS1)
Game ~ Jewel Case > Insert (Back Cover) >>>>>> Manual (Front Cover)
P.S.> I do tend to buy donor cases on the cheap, which should factor in on my opinion.
I'd love to see what you guys have experienced thus far.
I've been looking for Rez for the PS2 for several months now, so when I found it loose at GameStop for $5 today I didn't think I could afford to be particular about it. Sure, it doesn't "count" in my collection until I at least have the case, but now I can at least play it and see what all the fuss is about.
I also picked up a CIB Rebel Strike for the GameCube for $6.99, since the copy I had was uncomplete and pretty thrashed. At a different GameStop I got the two Untold Legends games for the PSP for $3 each.
At Dimple Records I found four relatively-uncommon SNES carts: Wario's Woods, Yoshi's Safari, Darius Twin, and Actraiser 2 for $5.99 each. I also found a CIB Nights: Journy of Dreams for the Wii for $2.99. I've heard nothing but bad things about this last game, but for $3 I'll take the risk.
How much does the Mega Man X2 Manual worth??
today I picked up a complete copy of dragon quest VIII for ps2 for $3.96, I've never tried a dragon quest game other then rocket slime for ds so I figured why not since it was under $4 and complete.
Today at Goodwill I found an innocuous-looking zippered "game system" case. Inside was a Game Gear with the wall adaptor, car adaptor, and 9 games: Sonic 2, Urban Strike, X-Men, Surf Ninjas, Ecco: Tides of Time, Desert Speedtrap, The Lost World, The Adventures of Batman & Robin, and some crappy baseball game.
Not too shabby for $20.
Biting fire will hurt you. You cannot breathe underwater. ATGames are wankshafts, one and all.

On Sunday, I won a Sega Nomad on eBay for £76 all in and it arrived this evening (just the Nomad on it's own - didn't want to pay £150 for a boxed one).
Around the same time as winning the Nomad, I bought an AA battery pack for it from America on eBay - only to discover this evening that it actually came with one (wasn't mentioned in the eBay listing), so, as you can imagine, I was pretty happy (given how hard they are to come across).
Also, the bloke I bought it from happened to work near where I live, so he kindly delivered it to me in person.
