    It is still being built I could have done more today but due to how lazy and mad at work I was I only did a little work. This was going to be my media center rig but I am having trouble finding a old home receiver I can gut and use as a case. So I am now using a Dell case I got off a friend and mostly likely giving this machine to my mom.

    Specs:

    ASRock K7S41GX
    AMD Sempron 1.5ghz
    DDR333 256mb
    80GB WD HD
    CD-Rom Drive
    CD-Rom Burner
    Unknown 420watt PSU
    AGP Card still needed

    Once I find what I did with the case side I think I am going to cut it out and plexi it. Then maybe some white cathodes.

    UPDATE! PSU case all painted

    It's lovely as to what people can do to a proprietary case and "Uniqueify" it! :rockout:

    Post this in the Badboys of case modding club! :toast:

    u growin potatoes in that front usb port?

    I think it would look a lot better if you put a strip of duct tape on top of that ugly dell logo. hehe. or just pop it out and wrap it in aluminum foil, then pop it back on.

    not bad though, for a dell :p

    Yeah I saw this in the Bad Boys thread, pretty cool. Bit too sparkly for me but it makes a change and looks pretty good.

    Nice one!

    ;)

    ah a copper AMD logo would be sweet looking, even another aluminum logo with AMDs name in it or their logo would look nice

    All you need now is some blue rounded IDE cables and some blue cable wrap/shrink.
