What to do with old PCs?

I'm curious what everyone does with their old PCs? Strip them of parts to add to your hoard, recycle, sell, trade, refurbish and donate? Thinking

  • Well, before I learned how bad they are for the environment, I used to use them as targets then throw them away. I really cringe at that now as I think of a couple of things we had are of interest to certain collectors. They're not worth lots of money but knowing someone might have had some joy restoring and using my old stuff makes me feel bad. Even one of my old CRT monitors I've seen people buying on Ebay. I do have to say that shooting up those things that had been causing me months of grief before finally replacing them was a bit therapeutic, and then when Tannerite came along it was even better. Now I keep hoarding them until I finally can get them to a recycling center.
