I currently have two AMD A8-7600 processors left over from building my first PC. My current box is chugging along fine, but recently I bough a SSD for an install Windows 10, and it came to mind that I still had those processors and RAM leftover.

I could build two more boxes for cheap if I wanted to, but I don't think I'd have use for them just yet. I still haven't pushed the box I have right now yet. Maybe a web server? A rendering box?

    I always think about the constant change in components, so I'd rather build a computer I don't yet need instead of deciding that in the future that I need it, but by then it is too old to do what I need.

    If nothing else, you can give it to a friend or neighbor who needs a computer.

    It's not free electricity though, I always tell myself when I muse on my hardware just lying there..
