Default "Granny Smith" computer

Hey Guys/Gals, got around to building my first "Granny Smith" computer this past weekend. Used 90% spare parts and a new GMC Toast case I got on sale for $25 from NCIX. I also have a few picture of my Windows Home Server with all 11 internal HDDs.

What do you think?

I put this in the F@H section and completely forgot to put it here. I figure it'd give you guys a laugh at what a dremel can do to a POS Compaq case. (Although, there's no more wireless card because it kept freezing the PC.)
Oh, some minor specs:
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ - Cooled by an extremely modded part of my 4870x2's stock heatsink
HP motherboard, Asus made
2x 512MB DDR1
8800GS for folding fun

Just about to log off for the night and then a response to my contraption. (Beware, wall of text incoming.)

Heh, the problem was I had NO heatsink for it, but I had a 4870x2 heatsink lying around. The nice thing about it is it is each heatsink for the GPUs are massive copper blocks with copper fins, unlike most others. I just had to sand down the bottom because there was a raised part to come in contact with the GPU. After that I unscrewed the stock plastic part for mounting on the mobo, cut it down a bit (dremel ftw), and forced it over the GPU heatsink. Put down some MX-2, screw everything in, and slap an 80mm fan on top and it works like a charm.

See these links for pictures of the second one I have laying around:
