Dual monitors!~! W00+
Hauppage TV Card
Hercules Sound

10gig OS Drive
Raidmax 500 PSU
300w PSU ~ 2ndary
DVD Drive

Colors will be gold internal and Black external.
The reasoning behind the color choice was due to several new components purchased have been gold in color.

Oowee! That's serious hardware. Are the cases held together with bolts, welding or such? I imagine that a dual Duron 1.3 rig can crunch serious data!

The cases I just bolted together. Drilled 4 holes, 1 in each corner and 'locktite'd' them. Had a few difficulties, but wasnt too difficult.
I dont really pay alot of attention, but it does pretty good overall.

LoL
Yea its a decent little case. Got each with a 300w PSU for something like 25 bucks?
So even if I fubared it up to bad when doin the mods wasnt enough to really have to worry about serious damage being done cash wise!
