wow, haven't seen that case in awhile. Looks good Snap.
Big thanks to t_ski for the rails needed to mount the drives. The rails worked nicely for the WD250Gb hard drive. I just had to perform a small mod of cutting the end tabs off so that the side panel would fit correctly to the case. Unfortunately the rails did not work with the optical drive cage, but I may have a solution without the use of mounting rails for the cd drive.
hdd mounted in cage with the rails from t_ski's old Dell servers
Cool - glad the HDD ones worked for you. Too bad the DVD ones did not.
Are they dell drive rails? If so I have some of those and didn't even think to try them. I have optical drive rails just not the hdd drive rails. I have made a work around for now.
Yes, they are.
Cool I have a few extra laying around. I might put them to use.
Longest build ever! It's been hard to find time lately, anyway here is some work on the cable management. Since this case is older it was a bit of a challenge to work with and I lost my dremel somewhere so I couldn't cut any holes for easier cable routing.
All that is left is finding a molex-to-6pin adapter for the 9600gt and installing the OS. Specs will be listed on final post, stay tunes..
I couldn't find an adapter anywhere!! I just decided to throw in an old 8600 so I could get her up and running.

I can hook you up with one for the cost of shipping
I may consider this I will pm you if so..
I was beginning to think you forgot
No, I was just going to stick with the 8600, but we ran into an audio and screen resolution issue on his hdtv. So I think it would be best to find a newer card that supports hdmi, so it fixes both problems in one. However I might just find a card that doesn't need the additional 6pin power source. We will see what I can find for cheap.
