I used to build/repair computers so I had a closet full of parts but I tossed them to Goodwill as they were outdated. They get old pretty fast.

I kept a few PSUs, some cards, couple of speaker sets, a few DVD-RWs and an AMD X2 3800+ system I built in a PII case minus the HDD and the DVD-RW which is in my new system. The AMD system has the GeForce 6200 video card and the SB Audigy sound card. It's too good a system to toss.

old pc towers. dell gx260/270/280 mostly. All out of commission and most without any guts left. They got replaced with optiplex 745's.

School Tech Coordinator...making the most out of outdated hardware.

I did work experience in a School a good few years ago and it was much like that, I had to remove the RAM and hard drives out of 120 Laptops then load them into a van to be sent off to be recycled.
