Advice wanted on TV video server.

I have an old Intel Celeron 501MHz PC sitting around collecting dust. I'm wondering whether it would be suitable as a video server for my television, assuming I upgrade it with WiFi and a TV card. I don't have/want cable, so I don't necessarily need TiVo-like capabilities, but it would be nice to have something that could access my WiFi network, grab my downloads (mostly fansubbed anime, foriegn shows, etc.), and play them on the home theatre system. Is it worthwhile to use such a system for this purpose? Is there a more elegant solution that I'm overlooking that doesn't involve burning a ton of DVDs?

Webcam Frustration

Webcam frustration: I have a Logitech QuickCam Pro 3000, and it's driving me up the wall. When it's not in use, the 'active' light is always on, but when I try to use it with any application, it goes off and the camera does nothing. I've done all the logical stuff I can think of - checked the Logitech site, Googled for this error, uninstalled and reinstalled software and hardware, changed USB ports and toyed with finding a major religion to cling to, but so far nothing makes any difference... so please help me, MetaFilter friends, or Mr WebCam will become surprisingly intimate with Mr Hammer... thanks!

What is a practical use for an extra PC built from spare parts?

I, like a lot of geeks, seem to just have a few spare motherboards and hard drives kicking around. I'd like to put these to good use, but the question is how? I'm interested in building a machine into a piece of furniture of even a wall or ceiling (renovating the basement now so timing is good for this), but I can't think of any reason to actually do this other than a digital picture frame with an LCD screen on the wall. This PC is already running without a case, so its in pieces and can stay that way. What practical (or slightly impractical) use can I get from an extra PC like this? I don't just need a simple server, already have one of those, and a client machine would be great, but I want this machine hidden if possible which makes the logistics of getting a monitor and keyboard somewhere useful a little more difficult.

Seeking PC power supply recommendation

I am in the process of building an AMD Sempron 2400+ based file storage machine. I am seeking recommendation for how big a power supply I need. I am planning on 4 to 5 (may be 6 in future) 250GB Seagates, 2x320GB WD Sata drives, 1 DVD writer, Geforce FX 5500 video card. The $50 case has a stock 480W PSU. I am wondering if I need more juice and possibly something by a well known brand ? I recently built an Athlon box with Seasonic 430 PSU. Seems pretty quiet. Not sure if I should get another of those.
