If you follow the instructions provided by the firmware authors you
don't have to worry about bricking a WRT. Furthermore, even a
relatively low-powered PC is going to run at five or six times the
wattage of a WRT.
If you really, really want to get fancy, you could spend about $250 on
an ALIX and all the associated parts:
If you've got a serial null modem, you don't have to worry about
bricking. Really though... just re-flash a WRT. It'll cost you about
$60 for the WRT and will give you an honest-to-goodness linux box that
draws about 5 Watts.
