My System Specs

Default

It's a spare PC, right? So, if it takes some of the components with it, who really cares. I'm assuming this is something that you don't want to put any money into.

However, since this thing won't be used for any gaming purposes, I would probably remove the 9800GT and just run the rig on IGP - assuming the motherboard has some sort of integrated graphics. They should be powerful enough to surf the web and watch youtube videos! Removing the graphics card will probably guarantee that your 300W powersupply is good enough!
