Found an old PC in my basement minus a PSU and I was wondering if I could use it to become a media server for my HTPC. My plan would be to use it as a place to store and push the media files. All ripping/ coding would be done on one of the other PC's and the file then moved to this. Here is what it has:
MOBO: DFI Lanparty UT nF3 Ultra-D
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3400+
Ram: 4 Gb Partriot (didn't look at timing)
So what do you think. Is it worth using any of these old parts? I'd move 2 HDD from HTPC plus add one additional blank drive I have, add WMS 2011 home, and a PSU.
