I think I might just do that. Everything in it (except for video card and ethernet) still uses ISA slots. This is perhaps the first time technology has been too old to work on my computer! I think I might sell off some of the older parts (ie, some ISA-based cards, hard drive, serial/printer port addons, maybe the motherboard + CPU) to a computer store. I'll keep the rest, because of the CDROM and floppy drives, and the fact it has a 250 watt PSU.

Sell? You'll be able to give at best. Most places are going to ask for a cash donation alongside for hardware that old.

Indeed. It's worth more for nostalga than it is for monatary value.

If it's still working in 50 years time it might be worth a few quid.
