So a few years ago my sister gave me this Gateway 838GM desktop computer that didn't work. Turns out it needed a power supply, when I fixed it she said she didn't want it back she bought a new one. Spec: Vista Enterprise Intel P4 3GHZ HT 512MB RAM 200GBSATA HDD Onboard shit video Realtek audio DVD RW and ROM i put it in the closet with a cat5 connection and there it sat. i remoted into it everytime i needed to work on it otherwise i hit the files using windows shares. i have the DYNDNS client on it too so i can get my files from wherever i have an internet connection. it was a pretty decent file server. as it got loaded up with files it got pretty slow. It is also running BOINC for Mirageforums.net . why aren't you? Upgraded it since though, in order of operations - added 400w power supply added 750GB secondary SATA HDD added ATI Radeon HD 3600, with HDMI output and cable Windows 7 Enterprise added 1GB ram making the total 1.5GB added D-Link N Extreme Wifi adapter I had moved it into the parlor under the big screen and obviously hooked it up using HDMI so now i use it as a media center. all my movies, pictures, and DVDs (plus DVD downloads) are all accessible through media center as well as the GUI. no need for a mouse and keyboard since i use DAMEWARE to get to the desktop, much better than terminal services in this case. i never have to worry about videos playing like crap due to the high powered video card and even the low resolution files taken from older cameras look great upconverted in HD. best $370 i ever spent on a machine. probably last atleast a few more years in this role. eventually i want to wipe it clean, drop more RAM in it, and install 7 Enterprise x64 .
