    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    Biostar M7VIT Pro (crap i know), AMD Athlon XP 2700+, TT Volcano CPU Cooler, 3x 512mb pc3200, Seagate 80gb and 160gb ATA hd's, ATI Radeon X850Pro AGP with an AC Silencer 5, generic Sound Card, 120mm Front Intake, DVD Burner Combo Drive. Thats pretty much it.

    Mods:
    Not many mods. blue Cold Cathode light. The front intake had tiny holes drilled for an 80mm fan to fit over. After buying a 120mm fan i had to completely rip off the metal and zip-tie the fan to the case (haha, i had trouble with my Dremel). I also have DynaMat acoustic dampening liner but these pics are older.

    I built this computer 3 years ago and have upgraded quite a bit since then, excluding my mobo and original 80gb hd. I know it may not be anything special but i would like some advice on making it better.

    For a three year old pc it looks good. 6. Now is the time to upgrade to another motherboard and a processor. You could buy a good cpu (Amd 3500+ and above) and board for 150 euro's.
    I don't know if you have the $ for it but that would be a good upgrade.

    But nice comp.

    If you do upgrade youll definitely want to keep that x850 pro or sell it on ebay as those cards are still worth alot and are definitly not slow.
