    If the case from Justinn does not work out, I have a case that has a side window. It is one of the cases that have plexi on the front that kind of glows. I would ship that too you free of charge Barbaric :)

    can I see a pic of it? Right now, this is the case I have lined up. Thermaltake LANBOX Lite VF6000BWS Black SECC Japan...

    I'm not trying to be picky, I'm just trying to make sure the boy is as happy as possible with the system.

    Give me about 10 minutes and I will post a picture of the case. I will just edit this post :)

    It really needs a good cleaning, which I would do before shipping to you :)

    I have to chime in here and say WOW.. This is wonderful.. I mean for a community to come together like this and spring for the young boy to have a rig to game on.. I almost felt a tear of joy but i held back! When i first came here i posted and people didn't respond to me right away and i became annoyed and was a rude jerk.. Since then i have came here for everything and now i watch the forums like an addict... Great community and what you guys/gals are doing is truly wonderful.. Each and every one of you will be blessed in some way,shape,or form! TPU is the best by far!

    Sincerely
    Tony

    The HDD is SATA. Since things are time sensitive, I can't promise I can have the Ballistix and the PSU to you by the 17th, but I will try.

    That's cool Paulieg, if it's later than the 17th, he'll just have to wait.

    Maybe pick up a decent set of headphones?

    I will, but considering the large music library of mine I'm gonna share with him(20,000+ songs), a set of speakers would be nice also.

    I was thinking of just a decent 2.1 set with good sound, but I'm open to suggestions. The motherboard does support 5.1.

    This thread makes me wonder if I should bring back my old "pay it forward" thread, where we offer components that we no longer need to give to those who are in need. I only closed it because I didn't want it to interfere with the "crunchers helping crunchers" thread, and honestly, I was getting to busy to maintain it. I'm thinking that since not everyone is able to crunch, and it's for a good cause, I may need to bring it back. Hmm...

    Barbaric, do you need any cables, fans etc? I've got lots of that kind of stuff that I can throw in with the HDD. I'm going to check on my PSU RMA today, so I can let you know whe the PSU would be available.

    Don't think it'll hurt. I'm sure there are plenty of people here that would appreciate it.

    I should be good on cables and kenkickr has offered 3 Antec Tri-cool 120mm fans. I could use a decent set of speakers if you know anyone with some not in use.

    That's an awesome rig he'll have, faster than mine at least (better CPU & GPU). And all basically for free! TPU FTW! :respect: :respect:

    Does it need a sound card or are you going to be using on board only?

    I know you don't want to spend more than $300, but your NewEgg build for almot $500 makes me want to mention this killer Combo I saw yesterday! For the price, I think it's amazing, not to mention how amazing the parts are you get with it! O_O

    Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, L...

    EDIT: Scratch that haha Guess I should've read past page one O_O That's a very nice system people are helping donate towards!! Shame I don't have anything I can donate :\

    EDIT2: Oh durr I just realized, I have a PSU I can donate, that is if Paul ends up not being able to donate the 700W. It'd be the Scythe 650W (haha I know you wanted it Paul), but sadly I don't have a power cord to go with it >_> Paul or Barbaric, PM me if it's needed.

    Ok, the 2 tri-cools and maybe one of the yate loon should be fine, but let me contact Stinger about the case and what fans it has/needs.
