Revive the old build: ideas or help needed!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have a build from a few years back that I did and it is now just sitting around my room. I would like to either make some form of web/media/file server out of it or maybe fold with it. a server would be preferred but I'm not sure how to start going about that. The specs of the build or in my sig under the old build. Any ideas or help anyone has would be greatly appreciated and ideas considered. thumb.gif

I would use it to fileserver if I was you... but it all depends on what you want I suppose...

What would it be for?

You could run a decent file server off that.

I say a linux OS would be the best choice..
