Looking for Ideas?
I had the opportunity to buy a second hand tower system, so I snapped it for just just a few quid. I spend £20 on it and that was just the tower were I I had the Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse Bundle and all the wires leads ect my self. So my question is.
What can I do with it as in has any one got any ideas how I could get the best out the system.
Its not state of the art but for £20 its housing a 3.2Ghz AMD Athlon, 1GB DDR2 and a 160gb HDD, with a DLT Drive being Quantum with two Tapes of being 360GB, a DVD\RW Front USB on board DVI. 450W PSU with a PCIe Slot x16 and two PCI Slots.
I've got HDD hear I could put in but unsure if they will take as I've never looked in the system to see if their is any spare SATA Power Cables.
I'm not sure if I was to use the system to back up what I would exactly back up, as I do most things online and don't really have a great deal on the one external drive I have plugged in to the tower I'm using everyday. I've also got my Hanns-G 19" connected Via. VGA.
The tape drive is interesting but unsure how to get it running on Mint 32Bit Cinnamon.
I could use it for the SETI or mabie F@H DC but want to get more out of it than just sitting their crunching DATA, and mabie interact with it. I've put Mint 32 Bit on as it was free, and their was no XP, or any Win Genuine Product Key to go with it.
Pretty nippy little tower but just unsure how to get the best out of it. Not bad for £20 .
