    Mods:
    This was a case+mobo transfer along with a few additions along the way. I want to add a blow hole to the top of my case (you can see the fan on top of my desk next to printer), but need a drill!! OTher than that, really minimal. I need to some cool stuff, but I have no tools!

    This is my computer how it will be until VISTA and DX10 hits. then i will prolly upgrade ram and vidcard, maybe cpu to an X2 (once price drops like whoa!) I have loved working on this thing, and I really got interested in modding and the whole community because of TPU! I saw the GTO2 article, and then decided to post my success story. now i check this site 5 times for every time i check my email (which is alot!!) Please comment on rec's or applauso or insults. i think i did a pretty good wiring job, but i really want to add the blowhole!!

    Hey, that's that Kingwin case, isn't it? I have that case and it looks pretty nice. I wish the window were a little bigger, but I sure have appreciated those quick connects the last few weeks with all the modding I've been doing...

    What is left from the emachine? Everything looks good. I have a similar build going right now.

    still working in the computer you see that is from the emachines is: 80GB HDD, Athlon 64 3200+ @2.4GHz (once i swapped mobos from the locked stock one), DVDRW drive, media card reader(that holder was hand tweaked with pliers baby! i took it with me wherever i walked and tweaked it little by little), and the windows license. also the monitor and printer i got are being used. i have the psu, case, motherboard, and 256mb ddr ram just laying around. i should sell that and try to recoup my enormous initial investmetn of $325
