    Think i would just keep it as it is and use if as a media pc? or buy a cheap raid/sata card and just use it for a NAS Drive, or put linux on it and set it up as an advanced firewall. plenty of options for an old but decent machine like that.

    You have a point there. A quick look on eBay shows that the processor is fetching about £25 whilst the motherboard is getting anywhere between £30-£40. The GeForce 6600 is getting about £20 as well.

    Not bad...

    ~£80 for components you completely forgot about!

    You could probably strip the RAM out and sell that separately as well.

    Well, I think these components are going to the in-laws as an upgrade to their creaking machine. I do have a couple of spare (elderly) 775 motherboards and will reuse the case as something a bit special that I have in mind

    I swapped out an old P4 with board, for a Core 2 Duo last night.

    The P4 had a smaller, unbroken case. It's now my Fedora box.

    The P4 board is going into the old Core2Duo case which is massive along with 5 old PATA DVD-RW drives to make a home built DVD duplicator for next years Christmas show. 200 DVDs copied in 2 working days this year! Thank God for an IT suite and 20 PCs with DVDR drives!
