    Well, you could harden it and make it a internet based private host. Web, Shell.. whatever..

    Offer virtual private servers for folks with lots of number-crunching requirements.

    cmdline install and play nethack?

    If you're having trouble of trying to work out exactly what you could do with a high spec machine as that, either turn into a lighting fast desktop and rub it in to everyone, or given the fact that you're buying it for a nice price possibly on sell it to someone who really needs it and make a tidy sum in the process.
