Default Free PC AND Free money? Good day really...

Well, my friend asked me to look at his PC for him, which was failing POST, and being a Fujitsu employee his brain had been melted by first line support work. After we worked out that basically every part was on it's way out (hard drive, memory, power unit looked/smelled dodgy as hell... etc.) he gave me a pony for my trouble and said he wanted the hard drive to get his stuff off before it dies, but other than that i could have the PC. Not a bad spec for a backup machine once i used most of my spare parts getting it working :P

AMD Athlon X2 4400+
1024MB DDR2-4200 (From my overly full box of RAM i dont need)
570W no-name(Trust?, but has been reliable over the years) power unit
some old crappy 30GB IDE drive
Radeon 2100 onboards
Some G band wireless card

I think it's an Aspire M1201? or something. In total, not a bad day.

EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black

Thats not shabby at all. Definitely will make a great server, perhaps a NAS server.
