    Be prepared for the messiest case you've ever seen. Keep saying I'll clean it up but I might as well wait now till I put in the new board and card in a few weeks. I used to have another build that I sold to Christophicus a few months ago and I really wish I'd kept the modular hyper psu from that. It's the third picture. The second one is my other 'powerhouse' - 500mhz, 384mb ram and Radeon 9200. Use it for playing divx/xvid, emulators and older games (currently playing Kingpin and Mortyr) on a projector. Very fond of it. :D




  • Closed Accounts Posts: 29,930 ✭✭✭✭TerrorFirmer

    Well, finally got a modular power supply, put in my new hardware and tidied things up.

    New case/parts. Third picture is the old one, re-built with cheap 2nd hand parts around what was left.




  • Closed Accounts Posts: 29,930 ✭✭✭✭TerrorFirmer

    Slight update. New monitor - still can't believe it only cost 260 euro. Don't think I've much more upgrading planned until September now, fairly happy with it for once.

    extreme? whats extreme? :p

    the 42u was pretty cheap - not much more than my new case. about 500eur including 2 switches, lots of cables, kvm switch, ups and other stuff; it was worth it alone for the ups. I use it to both house my two computers (desktop/server) and my podcasting gear - which is what actually takes up most of it (patch bay, mixer, firewire console, tube composer). I'd take a pic of it now if i could, but my camera is busted.
