Mines specialised for taking up valuable cupboard space as I upgraded the HD last year to a 300gig one from 160 so I could use that in an original xbox,. then keep meaning to get round to re-installing the o/s and all the other software. May do it this week though so I can try this new OS on it http://www.earos.dk/ looks interesting!

If I were to build a HTPC, I would use it for playing 720p content, installing a 5.1 sound card to have surround sound, having a TV tuner in it to watch and record digital media, and really removing everything that's usually connected to a TV and replacing them with a PC.

Great for having all your fave dvd's/Divx movies readily available at the click of a mouse.

Can replace the stereo, the dvd player etc etc..........also a useful recording device.
So many uses, oh and also a handy ad hoc net browser, hi-def player......the list goes on :thumbsup:
