    Intel D815EEA board (Sound,Ehernet,32megs video)
    P3 667mhz Coppermine
    3X128megs PC100
    20 gigs HDD
    CD reader + DVD reader

    I have a shed outside where i store all my tools and mechanic stuff so I was thinking about removing it from the case and screw it to the plywood wall.

    What would you do instead ?

    Ive been in your situation afew times. Old computers use too much juice for their power. Best off donating it or throwing it :)

    Sorry.

    Id finally be able to play my Janes USAF flight sim game again since it hasn't worked since the release of XP on any system and trying to get win 98 to work right on a new rig or vm is damn near impossible.

    The idea of a work computer is nice i find myself geting grease all over my Mouse and keyboard when im working on my RC stuff

    I installed a single fog light coming from my old car bolted to a beam with tilt adjustable and a 120mm 12v fan plugged on an old car battery. When I enter the shed i flip the switch fan and yellow beam light goes on ;)
