Here's a link to a dual-socket Socket 940 motherboard for $9.99

It's got me thinking, what could a person do with a cheap 940 motherboard and enough Ebay parts to build a machine with it?

Would something like this be worth a crap as a home PC? (I mean that in a just-for-the-hell-of-it kind of way) I don't know much about server hardware, so anything you all could tell me would be helpful.

Lol, if you could get cheap Athlon FX-51s (some shops down here sell them new for like $100 USD), then you could build an incredibly outdated server or just have fun with it. Just get a pair of Opteron 200 CPUs, and knock yourself out with your six or seven year old server flagship computer, which unfortunately, wouldn't be able to play Crysis.\

makes a good target if you have an air rifle or better still a shot gun
