AMD Athlon XP 2400+ (2.00 GHz)
1GB DDR Ram @166Mhz
Nvidia GeForce 6200 (128MB) AGP x8
149GB and 488GB PATA Hard Drives, both Western Digital
Soyo SY-K7VME Motherboard

So I think it's best purpose would be a Windows XP backup system and file holder.
Although its specs are poor compared to today's PCs it would have been top-of-the-range when you bought it.

How does it compare performance-wise with today's rigs?

Use it as a testbed to create a new kind of phase change cooling based off refrigerator parts and duct tape.

Oh wait.... that is what I was going to do.

Take off the CPU cooler, clean cpu and cooler face with alcohol, apply new thermal paste. Temps will go down.

Use as server and test bed, backup rig, conversation piece

@Dave76: I did that a month ago and has Arctic Silver 5 on it, stopped the overheating but still gets my room to a unwelcoming warm temperature just after an hour.

@A Guy: I have heard of Mineral Oil submersion, but isn't that pricy?

@Seavixen32: Performance wise against a rig of today with a single core, a gig of RAM, and a 128MB graphics card, the machine of today will Sparta it into the pit of death.
