    I got bored one day, and had my prebuilt 8 year old gaming PC that I used for a long damn time, So I zip tied it to a rack, and now it exists. It is currently being used as a guest PC, for when my buddy comes over, so that he doesn't have to lug around his HP brick :p

    Specs:
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 945 quad
    GPU:GT 730
    Mobo: Asus. Don't know which one.
    RAM: 4x2gb for 8gb total
    PSU: a 350w supply ;)
    Storage: 320gb 7200rpm Laptop drive of unknown origin ;)
    SoundBlaster sound card
    Keyboard and mouse
    And for your viewing pleasure, I've included pics :p

    Not enough cardboard! I am disappointed :x
    *sarcasm mode off*
    It's amazing what boredom can do. Mount some super-thin plywood or something sturdy / easy to drill through to a picture frame and mount it to the wall with a sturdy framing nail or 3 inch screw or two into the wall studs, and flip it on for kicks now and then, possibly put linux or make it a DOS machine etc.
    Don't hang it, mount it up, screw it to the wall, it should stay there then, don't want it falling down.

    You can buy a long white VGA cable, or a remote kit and send the data to your TV, and use a wireless mouse and keyboard to play dos games on with DOSBOX or a legit DOS or LINUX OS. It can be useful!
    Puppy Linux will run on ANYTHING just about as will variations of Ubuntu using XFCE.
