As the title says, I have 2 spare computers that are really old...we are only keeping them to get some files of ours. Now what I'm asking is anything worth keeping in terms of hardware? I know they will not sell for much.

I will post some pictures.

Can you state what the parts are? Model, type, brand, etc.?  That would provide better information than images in this instance.

 

For example, with the PSU, such info. as the voltage and so forth would be good info.

 

Another example: Motherboard, brand, age, type?

And the cpu can't be unlocked because of a odd heatsink lock.

Let's see, a P4 at 3 GHZ, won't get too far or too fast.  As a file server maybe if it will network okay with the other WIN versions.  Most had small hard drives, usually no bigger than 50 GB, so the space would be limited.  Maybe a museum piece.  But if it still works, maybe $50.  I have an old IBM AT unit with a 2.4 GB drive and a 2 MB memory expansion and runs WIN 3.2 over DRDOS 7.0.  It currently has been on since 2009 and runs a home network of electrical and environmental controls (lighting, curtains, heating & cooling and fans) besides a security control system for electrical current regulation and collecting inputs from door and window sensors and temperature & humidity monitors.  Don't chuck it if you can use it.

My house is a mess, it's empty.

Plus, it's been used to clean my desk of all the black stuff.

I agree with mjd420nova, $50 sounds about right. You could always look on Kijiji to see what similar spec computers in your area are selling for.
