$30 Flea Market Monster

Okay, I managed to get the following at a fleamarket for peanuts (minus the power supply which is my spare. I threw out the Explodomax Special edition that was in it the second I got home). It tests out well, even boots to Windows 7 when you toss in RAM and a GPU (1gig stick and prehistoric Radeon for testing I keep around).

I'd like suggestions on how you think I should finish it up and what should I use it for?
