What should I do?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Dell Optiplex 745 that I got free from a family member (soon to be two of them), that I don't know what to do with. Basically I am looking for ideas what to do with it/them.

Specs of the system(s) are the following

Core 2 duo E6400 @ 2.13 GHZ
2GB DDR2 Ram (don't know the speeds / timings)
80GB WD HDD
Sata DVD R/W
Crappy 305W Dell PSU
ATI X1300
And of course best for last the Flopy Disk Reader

Make it a file server or HTPC.

Sounds like a decent idea, I probably should grab a larger HDD though, I think it only supports SATA 1, so I might have to grab a cheap SATA 2 expansion card and some F3s before it becomes my server.
