@e_ah post some pictures of "the beast" with your question. Let's see what we are dealing with here. What OS did it have etc. ? Anymore specs available?

Turn it into a web server!

da

Turn it into Network Attached Storage with XigmaNAS (free). Make it a home entertainment center with MythTV or Kodi. Make it a home server for your music and/or movies with Subsonic. Rejuvenate it by running a lightweight Linux distribution like BunsenLabs, or Ubuntu Mate. If it's really old, make a music player out of it, to play music from your home network server!

• Web Server

• Media Server

• Paper weight

• DVR (put a TV Tuner in it) -- nah, probably not enough processing power unless the GPU takes over

• Classic arcade game/ Classic video game console emulators (think MAME).

• Heater for really cold nights (just remove the heat sink and fan).

• "Car"puter -- somehow jam it into the dash of a car, like where the passenger side airbag should be.

I have #1,3,5 already done. A heater? That would just shut off lol. It would be more effective keeping it on. My pentium d likes to warm my room quite a bit when leaving it running overnight,

@avanteguarde a heater is an... interesting suggestion...

All of my family members near me have decent pc's. Donating them to a thrift store? 99% of the time they end up in a dumpster.

you could also sell it on ebay or craigslist and whatnot. maybe donate it to a friend or school or a church?

da

You can sell them to gamestop or other places for the parts and then use that money to get new things.
