Old hardware usable?
« on: July 12, 2014, 01:46:41 PM »
Hello folks,

I'm about as rank a noob as one can get on this topic. Only heard about the whole concept of mining 24 hours ago, and am catching up from ground zero...

Due to circumstances too embarrassing to mention, I find myself in possession of a significant quantity of brand new, but very outdated motherboards with integrated graphic systems ( newbielink:http://www.via.com.tw/en/initiatives/empowered/pc1500_platform/ [nonactive]).
I have for some time been looking for something to do with them other than landfill, and am now wondering if building them up into a rack running a minimal cli linux distro on each to mine litecoins is a viable option. I have a spare server rack and 24 port switch I could use already, and literally boxes full of ATX power supplies. Perhaps something with the OS delivered via lan to each machine (worker?) from a master machine (slave driver?) with a hdd?

Is there a hardware expert that can venture an opinion if this is practical, or is landfill still the better option?

Thanks in anticipation
