    GeForce 2 MX Video Card

    This isn't a bad comp at all, and I need some use for it. What would you recomenend? I'm into webdesign mostly, so what could it be used for for my website? Any suggestions welcomed. :)

    I use my current system for webdesign. I thought about giving it away...then I realized that would be charitable. :twisted:

    It isn't a speed demon, but it would certainly be very workable for use as a server box. But if you decide to be charitable, I would recommend looking into giving it to a local school for educational use. They are always looking for extra equipment to meet student demand.

    Unless you live in a smallish town, the firewalls normally utilized by schools make this type of surfing rather difficult. The wife works for our local school district and has a difficult time looking for work-related stuff.

    Take that HDD out of it. It's really being wasted. The processor isn't too bad, but with that RAM and video....
    You could joing one of our distrubuted computing teams at Beefy's World. Join SETI@Home and help to find aliens, or join Folding@Home and help to cure diseases.

    In addition to that, you could still use it for a web server. You can definetely use it for web design, web browsing, word processing, etc. but it's more than enough to do that an act as a server.
