you could just run it as a folding rig; every little bit helps.

OC it as high as you can go for kicks. After that, just buy a decent HDD and use if for a file server. Folding is also good.

OC, then fold. Make it a file server, 500GB HDDs are 100$ and a Wi-Fi PCI card is another 20$.

Yeah, I agree with everything above, except for the OC part.

I mean, you obviously have another good rig, and its not like you have something you want a PC to do, that it cant - that THAT rig cant do.

Fileserver/RTS game Server/Folder

If you know someone in your area that has no PC, and cant afford it, be kind
