pc case mods

has anyone installed windows in their cases to show off your computers guts? I think this is just what my new gaming machine needs, a big ass window and a neon tube


seeing how my new rig will be running dual processors, 512ram, 5 cooling fans and rounded cables for better air flow it would be nice to show off the goods without cracking the case

I got 1GB or RAM in my main PC (RAM is cheap, so I got a little carried away ;) )

Takes forever to check the RAM when I start up, though ;)

Abit KT7A-Raid motherboard
768MB pc 133 RAM
1 IBM Deskstar 7200RPM ATA 100 30GB
2 Western Digital 7200 RPM ATA 100 40GB
Acer 12x8x32 CDRw
Hitachi 16x DVD
Jaz drive
Adaptec AHA-2940UW scsi Controller (I also had 2 ultra scsi drives in here but took em out)
SB Live!
SuperMicro SC705a Case w/11 fans.
Logitech Mouseman Wheel Cordless
Klipsch Promedia V.2-400 speakers
Sony CPD-210 GS monitor

I wouldn't over kill on ram. I have 512mb of PC133 memory in mine and I barely notice XP pro using over 200mb.

This is my setup:

Dual P3 733MHz Coppermines
ABIT VP6 mobo w/on board raid (that I dont use)
Hercules 3D prophet 2 (geforce 2 pro) w/64mb DDR
1 34gb UDMA 66 Maxtor HD
SB Live Value
D-Link 530tx 10/100 nic
Yamaha 8/8/24 CD-RW w 4mb cache (E-IDE)

and that be it. I'm not that impressed with dual CPU's and I notice I get about the same amount of buffer under-runs if I start to do something. :( I want to upgrade to dual P3 1GHz and max out though, but the P3 coppermines are still pretty expensive.

Ram is cheap, except when you need registered ECC PC100, then 512 is more than enough.

As for buffer underruns, I have a HP external 4x4x6 burner. The USB setup is great for moving from machine to machine and the USB setup helps prevent buffer underuns as well, as long as I use good quality media I rarely make coasters.

I am running 2 IBM IDE deskstar drives in my other machine but LOVE the SCSI drives speed and reliability in my server class machines.

Currently I have 3 PC's, 1 server and my laptop running at my house. My 6 yr old is running a Cel-800, 128 ram, 20GB hard drive , 17" IBM monitor and I have a Dell 266MMX, 128 ram and 15" monitor ready for my 3 yr old.

I had it up once before in another post; Thrasher is right. I just had the pics though, not the whole page like it is now.
