A gopher search of genbank for:

complete and genome

yields *lots* of (too many) candidates for you.  If you want a phage
genome a search for:

complete and genome and phage

yields about 6 complete genomes for you, ranging in size from 
3.5 kb (Bacteriophage MS2) to 46.6 kb (Bacteriophage lambda).  

A search for 

complete and genome and bacteriophage 

will yield a few more genomes in the same size range.

If you don't know what gopher is don't worry it's free and on the net,
write me a note if you need information on how to get started with

Best of luck,
