i was going to suggest making it a server or a mediacenter but it seems too nice to only do that with it. It's a decent rig so I'm sure someone could make great use out of it.

Read up on Windows Home Server:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...r/default.mspx
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Home_Server

It's a pretty nice system, I was thinking of building one a while back but decided to just spend the money on my current rig. Automated backups, web server/remote file access, media streaming, and the system it uses for hard drives is genius.

The price is $100, but I could get you a link I wish I had a couple hundred dollars lying around to build one of these, they just seem so convenient.

ASUS A8N SLI-32 Deluxe?? You kidding me?

Man this is a pretty hot mobo and it will support, upto, the Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4800+ ,the Athlon 64 FX-60 Dual-Core or the AMD Opteron Dual-Core 185. This could make a great 2nd PC.

Oops I don't have the 32, but if memory serves me correct it is a step above the series mine is in.

Great motherboards. I have found the thing to be plenty fast for my (limited) gaming needs.
