See this thread where this topic has been discussed (recently, too!) ... Just because your machine is different spec, we don't need another thread! ;)

frankly, i feel that my server is in an entirely different performance class, and thus could be used to do a lot more. so yeah i think it warrants a new thread.

Frankly, most of us don't have the spare time to explain things twice. That thread has some excellent ideas on what to do with old computers... Router/Firewall, Learn Linux, Home Server... <_<
