Sure its a refurb, but for $280, if any parts fail, the cost is negligible. Not a gaming powerhouse, but for a kid who needs their own box, or for the wife who wants one in the kitchen, or whatever, not too bad. Has a PCIe 16x slot too, if you're like me and just upgraded your vid card on your main box.

Might make a good WHS box, but you'd seriously need to upgrade the total HDD space in that case.

And for Folding, I'd say the $199 Dell SC440 is more potent. You can always run it headless, after all.

Agreed.

I thought about this for a sec because I have gobs of dd2 lying around, which would make this a decent low use workstation. Later I read that the meek 2 ram slots are SO DIMM, scratch that idea.

In ten years computers will be so much more powerful, that the contribution of a 1.6GHz sempron will be completely irrelevant.
