New computer and pile of hard drives

This will be the last post ever made on the old computer, a P4 2.8 Win xp system. The new computer is ready, and all files have been moved over. (Yes that is the limit of my cable management.) It is interesting to see that all of the HDDs above don't even add up to the storage contained within the single new drive. I have taken the best HDD, a 500 gig SATA, and put it in the new computer for extra storage and backup. This drive is unplugged for now to save electricity and reduce noise, but perhaps it will be needed at some point.

Any ideas for the old computer? And what about the old HDDs? I hate to just break and recycle them, but I can't think they are worth enough to sell on Ebay.
