Worse case scenario. We get him another one! hahaha
That's what I figured, but that I would mention it just in case.

I have no idea what case I have it just says Antec and it seems to be a full tower, lots of room. But I've decided not to use that case instead I bought one that's on sale at NCIX I hope it will do the job.

NCIX.com - Buy Thermaltake V3 Black Edition ATX Mid Tower Case Black 4X5.25 1X3.5 4X3.5INT Front USB Audio No PSU - VL80001W2Z In Canada.

I'll post a picture of the Big black case and see if someone can ID it. Right now I've got to jet off to work.

Oh and thanks to ZZLEE for a 3rd RAPTOR.

The response from the folks here at HWC has been outstanding. This computer has shaped up to be a great mid-level build and he and his family are going to have a great time with this computer.

You'll also be happy to know that he has returned his computer he was renting to easy home aswell as some other furniture that I gave him from my house (gave my wife an excuse to buy new stuff). We have saved him 600 dollars a month! The savings will go a long way in improving his family's quality life. Thank you to everyone that had parts to give and for the moral support many many others. This has been a fantastic experience for me and I'm touched by the out pouring of generosity. I'm looking forward to posting picks of the finished product.

Pelt,
Thank you for bringing this project to our attention and to your commitment of building the computer for this needy family

Props to the good people of the HWC community that supplied items to this very worthy cause.





If anyone knows of other Forces families in need of help, please feel free to pm me with a list of items or requirements. I would provide whatever I can afford at that time.

i know you've said you have enough. But i have a older seagate 250GB drive that's collecting dust. It's a RMA replacement drive but if you want it it's yours (need some more space than 3 74GB drives.)

PM if your interested.
