Now-adays I recommend people *not* reuse an old PC for this 24/7 work. I
suggest they make an investment in a low-power box and wait for the
machine to pay for itself in power savings.
I replaced a 70W PC with a 4W Fit-PC (version 1). That's about $85/year
in electricity (at current rates). The unit cost me $420. That's not a
bad ROI. I find the machine to have ample power for shifting packets
