A few months ago my GPU die and I didn’t have any hardware to troubleshoot the issue. So I bought a new PC, GPU prices were still super high so it worked out to be much cheaper to just get a prebuilt. After I got the new pc, did some troubleshooting on the dead pc and it seems that my gtx970 was the only thing to die and it was just out of warranty.
So now I have a decently beefy PC that is currently a paper weight. It is i7-4790k with 24Gb ram.
What would be some good ideas to put it to work? I was thinking about turning it into a pen-testing Lab, but have no idea how. For the last month or so I have just been loading it with random Linux Distros and playing around with them. I already have a media server that I barely use.
Let me know any suggestions or how I would go about turning it into a pen-testing lab and get started with that.
