    So, I got this PC on surplus for my kids, so they would stop screwing up mine.

    I got home, booted it up and it's a 3Ghz Pentium IV with 1GB ram and a 80GB HDD!!!

    As soon as I get another video card for it (it only has the built in video but has a PCIe slot in it) I think I'm going to swap it with the current family PC!

    My media center PC has that, but with 750 gb of storage, with another 500gb on the way. It's a shame I only use it for media purposes, but since I have it hooked up to my standard def. TV, I can't play many games on it and trying to read text is a pain.

    If you got an xbox or a 360, you should put media center on that PC and use the xbox as an extender.

    Unfortunately, right now it is for the kids, it's in their room - they are using it to play MAME as we speak (they are big time old school arcade fans).

    The family PC already has all my recording software and stuff on it - for a comparison, the "family PC" is a 1.8Ghz sempheron with 512MB of ram - the kids have the better PC right now! :(
