Upgraded my RAM and re-arranged the wires and case fan again lol
There is no room to hide wires in this case, but I like it so much

Thanks. I was gonna buy one. But 150$??? This works great, i saved 140$, and it was fun too.

These will stack. Gonna build a folding farm on the cheap. I'd better put up a windmill too. ;^)

The nice thing about a wood test bench is you can drill holes everywhere for mounting hardware and tidying up cables.

You could do that with metal too just with a different bit.

If its gonna get kicked around, metal is better. But I didn't want to spend more than an hour or two on it.

You guys all have some great systems.

This has been my personal rig for a while now - and it's also what I'm taking with me when I leave home soon for my new apartment. I'm typing on this system right now and do a bit of light gaming (circa 2001) whenever I can

@Chaos Theory: thats one hell of a nice case for such old hardware...but then again that dual PIII setup was quite pricey back in the days
