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

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!

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