What to do with leftover parts?

Not sure where to post this question, so I'm just putting it here.

What should I do with the parts that will be left over from my system upgrade? I'll have a slightly-damaged motherboard (one RAM slot is nonfunctional), a fully working CPU/stock cooler, and a possibly-damaged graphics card (the card produces large amounts of heat even when idle), each are about 3 years old and will need to be dealt with or disposed of somehow.

Any suggestions?

I would donate them to goodwill, or give them away on craigslist under free stuff.

You could also use them and build a cheap HTPC, that's what I did. All I had to buy was a cheap case, PSU, and video card - and that was it.

Looks like I can get a tax deduction from donating to goodwill. I think that's the route I'll go this time around.

Thanks for the suggestion!
