+ - What to do with spare, aging PC hardware?

Turzyx (1462339) writes "I recently decided to clear out my spare PC parts box. After discarding the broken and virtually antique (worthless) components, I was left with enough bits to build a couple of dual core AMD systems with reasonable specs.

These parts have been doing nothing for nearly 2 years; I've upgraded family members PCs with the bits that I could, and the going rates on eBay aren't worth the time and effort to list and post them...

Given that I will likely have to justify the additional power consumption to my wife at some point, is there anything worthwhile I can use this hardware for? So far I've considered creating a net/file server (which falls at the first hurdle), or perhaps a media centre for the front room. Any advances on these?"
