I also put one of those out to pasture recently. I've actually got a stack of 10 old machines in my office, ready for recycling. Just DBAN'd all the drives. P4, s a few core2duo's... It was a bit of an XP retirement party....

I harvest a few sticks fo RAM, some power supplies(that had been replacements, so still not that old) and a few video cards. To be honest, I don't think I'll use many of the parts, but I like to keep a few around for sudden PC death that can occur....

Just wondering, why don't you drop the mobo for recycling? Should be free, you already paid the fee....

Do you own any guns? If so take gun and mobo to a shooting range and have at it...and please post before and after pics here! :mrgreen: :D

Seriously though, since it still works ( not the onboard audio but everything else still works right?) , then why not donate it to this Charity for Kids Computers that is in your city:

computers are no longer accepted at most locations as they are getting way too many. i have Athlon64 3200+ with 1GB ram and 4200Ti card that work just fine but when i inquired for donation i was told they get too that they don't want them anymore. i can imagine with the advent of tablets. there was one place that told me to drop the "piece of junk" attitude in one of the bins. at which point i changed my mind and i am glad today as i was able to source the psu from it to replace my now "defunct" psu for the custom paper tray case.
