Something else you might want to consider if you have access to a few dollars. With a bit of searching, you can generally purchase a new all-in-one motherboard, processor and memory on e-bay for less than $100 – not the latest and greatest, but probably multiple generations ahead of old clunkers. Rip out the motherboard from a clunker, put in the new one (reusing the case, power supply, hard drives, etc.) and you have something that will be serviceable much longer, at very little cost.
