    Take it to pieces that you can use as spares in emergencies?

    Use it as a sever for home or something along those lines (useful if you have plenty of computers but only one printer)?

    Use it as a secondary PC (for emergencies again)?

    I already have a decent laptop so there's no real reason to retain it as a secondary PC. Print server was considered, but I would rather have something the size of a Shuttle for that job (apartment space is limited and the printer still doesn't have a good home yet). Also, I know you can get standalone networking kits from HP so sharing the printer is not really an issue, especially since I don't do a ton of printing these days.

    Primarily I'm trying to drop down to my PC and laptop and get rid of any extraneous hardware that I've accumulated since starting college which I don't have a need for now that I'm in "the real world". This computer is the first one to go until I come up with a decent arrangement for my desktop to be used on either my monitor or my small HDTV which is in the same room. Once that's done I'll be getting rid of my DIY "media center" as well.

    I just tossed out 3 computers in the trash. Tired of lugging around P4's and P3's lol.

    I did keep my Compaq portable computer (not laptop) from the early 80's because it's a collectors item.

    I've got 2 or 3 old soundblasters if anyone wants them. 2 were pulled from old P4 Dells and the other one I'm not sure, but they're all usable.

    I have a dell tower with XP and a 64bit chip in it.
    Looks to be a duel core.
    Not many xp's with a 64bit cpu.
    This work very well because I use to use it and my wife used it for awhile.
    Looking for a really god vid card. that will run good with my 8 core cpu.
    end
