I want to utilize the proc power of my old P4 board. Can a gadget be build out of a Pentium 4 Intel mother board & proc ( no keyboard or mouse as interface ) ???
I know I can convert into an HTPC.

My Idea: May be convert it into a smart game or electronic instrument or music mixer. Don't know how to.

Your ideas & specs & vids of such DIY projects are welcome.

Thanks !!!

You already said HTPC. Old computers also make great network storage for backups. Or can be used to serve music or videos. But if you don't have a good backup plan for your main computer, I recommend using this old system to save backups.
