Default what to do with 15 pc's?

Hey all, new here.
My company just upgraded 15 pc's to brand new dells.
I now have 15 older pc's, mostly amd 1800 with 256 megs ram etc.

I would like to build a mutli motherboard box, possible? or somehow bridge them all as 1 HUGE box any ideas?

Just curious, why would your company buy 15 Dell computers as opposed to having you build them 15 Custom systems??

No company would trust a person to build their computers for them, they would rather go through a company and get a bulk discount.

You guys are very wrong. Our company isn't even that big, but they pay our IT department (2 very smart guys) very good money. Every PC/Server and network in every bldg (4 across the US) are built and maintained by these guys.

And company's can get very nice discounts and build PC's for a heck of a lot cheaper than you can get them from Dell.
