Question What to do w/extra desktop PC?

Have my GF's old desktop PC & need some ideas on what to do with it.

I already have my old desktop running my arcade cabinet. I don't NEED to do anything w/it, but I have it so I want to find a use for it.

Set it up as a media center for your TV. Torrent all your shows and movies and then watch it on your TV.

In that case do what doug said, does it have a HDMI chord hookup? Or does your TV have a VGA hookup?

Media Center or depending on the hardware, you can turn it into a mini server.

It'd look ghetto to sit the tower next to the TV IMO.

I could turn it into a security center, but that would depend on my options for inexpensive wireless cameras.

How is your TV set up, on the wall? Put it with the DVD player etc...

Put up specs so we can see what it is capable of and what not. I would probably use it as a server

Porn stash computer. That way you can click any questionable links. Just be sure to get it loaded up on free anti-virus / anti-spyware programs first.

Or sign onto neighbors wifi and look at child porn, then wait for police to show up and arrest your neighbors. After that donate computer to local church full of porn.
