    Yeah I remember that. :D It had extra fan holes and stuff like that. You even tried to get rid of the Acer logo, lol.

    Well, the system I use most of the time is rocking no case, if that counts :p

    And my AMD X2 system is in a junky no-name case.

    Some computers offer no choices for upgrading because of motherboard cnfiguration. So yeah I'm still rocking my Compaq small form factor :p

    How bad are the scratches das.dude? We can get rubbing compound for plastics here at most auto parts place and some hardware stores, does the trick on stuff that isn't too bad. Some places even sell "headlight restoration" kits... Maybe you can find something like that? :eek:

    I always keep a few OEM's around. Particularly fond of the old dc5100 MT and the dc5800 MT series from HP/Compaq. Solid paint jobs.

    Best,

    I rebuilt my stepdad's OEM PC with a bunch of custom parts. New motherboard, ram, cpu, cooler... so I guess you could call that a custom build in an OEM case.
