It's more of a secondary PC for when the one downstairs is in use. Primairily to surf, download, ocasionaly to encode and burn. My wife uses it as I seem to occupy our livingroom PC on and off most of the time for something or another. If I'm not tweaking it, I'm playing a game or reasearching my latest interest. Lately that's overclocking.

Just getting tired of it running like a snail, it was our Main PC until I upgraded to what you see below. Originaly thought it would be a good for secondary for web surfing, but as we used it more I realized the reason I upgraded. 256 MB memory don't cut it in XP when you have to run firewall and virus software. Rambus is a waste of time to upgrade. 1gb is over $200 and in some cases closer to $300. Rambus would have been a good idea if it took off, don't know why it didn't. It still competes after 6 years for similar or better bandwidth than todays memory. Not worth the premium price anymore though.

So I'm not concerned about the AGP graphics card in it too much, nor the slow DVD burner. Graphics is a 256MB 5600XT overclocked to hell. ( Regret buying the XT) It's something that works well enough for a graphics card to get buy until the main rig requires an upgrade. Although I may just upgrade to another 7900 GT Superclocked CO, I can always pick up a 7300GS later for cheap. That's the reason for both an AGP slot and PCI 16x. Planning for the future.

Hopefully someone in the world will need the 1.8Ghz 423 P4, Mb and 256MB of Rambus memory. I figure I will get about $40 for the memory, $20-$40 for the cpu and motherboard. That will pay for part of the core re-up.
