Built this as my personal media storage and occasional emulation/gaming system. I wanted to use an older pre-build to start with as parts are now readily available and mostly cheap. The initial barebones prebuild cost me about $65.

UPDATE: Finally added 2 new RAM sticks in to replace the stock RAM inside. We're up to the max 16GB now
