P4 2.5 o/c@3.0 1gig PC3200(2x512) ATI Radeon 9250 256mb onboard sound blaster audigy SE 7.1 surround with logitech x-530 speakers attached. And Dual 80gig hard drives(one seagate one maxtor)nothing special

remved side panel and replaced with blue plexi(any idea how hard it is to cut crves in plexi??)Masscool performance cpu cooler and custom paint job......cant play hitman blood money, but it is the only game i have encountered that i couldnt play. plus 4 case fans and one white neon to make the blue plexi "glow in the dark"

Found this pc on the side of the road....they threw it out becuase there son got into it and unplugged some wires and they couldnt figure out how to put it back together. Ayways i am currently purchasing parts to build my new computer as i have the money to do so. P.S. i have included pc specs before and after the o/c check photos........And yes that is an xbox contorller i have hooked up to my pc.
