I'll be showcasing my old pc which my daughter have inherited:

ANTEC performance plus mid case
Athlon XP T-bred 2400+ @2220MHz
GIGABYTE GA-7N400 PRO2
HIS Hightech ICE98-2H-ZAM Radeon 9800PRO
X-Connect 500W Green PSU

***Includes all the DUSTS imaginable :oops:
Image

***another shot but cleaner
Image

***if anyone wondering what's on the side-panel, here a closer look :lol:
Image

I really feel sorry for it's cosmetic situation knowing that she has her new computer armoire/desk (took me 3-4 hrs assembling last night)...

***that's her new logitech X-230 too
Image

Anyway, back to the dusts and cosmetic looks... I wouldn't mind keeping the looks, the scratches alone I love to keep but since my 8yr old daughter would be using it I think a make over should be appropriate to go along with her new desk and stuff.

I went to the dollar store earlier today to get me some paper towels and Dawn dishwashing liquid and...
BEHOLD WHAT AWAITS ON YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD DOLLAR STORE!!! I saw these 4.5ft x 18in. adhesive vinyl mainly used for cabinet linings, it's a bengal tiger patern 8)
Called up the house and asked if daughter wants me to make her pc look like a tiger, which she agrees :lol: so I bought 3...
Image

***here's how the right side panel looks... Ha ha...!!! this $3.00 make over starts to look HOT! :twisted:
Image
Image

I'm happy how thrilled and happy my daughter this bengal tiger look makeover and so am I :P

puuuurrr.... meow!!! We'll update... :lol:

I guess my daughter's $3.00 (only one vinyl roll was used, so make that only $1.00) bengal tiger make over is done.

Image
***and I still get to keep the FIRE SAFETY NOTICE sign :twisted:
Image

Get a load of the graphics and what's cool (my daughter called my attention to it) is how the art plays with your eyes :roll: 8)
...or maybe it's just us :oops:

***viewing it from the back makes the case look bloated 8O
Image

***viewing the case up front, the case looks dented inwards like it has eating disorders... :o
Image

So, there you go... my daughter's bengal tiger rig :lol:

Nice job on the tiger rig. 8)
I tried using a "Point of View Gun", but my aim was lousy. ;-)

ASUS K8N, AMD Sempron 3100+(1.8ghz), 1gb RAM, eVGA 5500FX 256mb AGP, two WD120gb SATA drives in RAID 0 (striping), 450w power supply.

Fold well, so that others may prosper.

This case is really nice and defiantly the easiest i have ever worked with before, so much room to do stuff and hide away excess cables. Everything is solid - no plastic at all. really impressed!

New case, same guts, kinda like a boob job for my PC!

Where she normally sits

Side off

Door open

Door shut

The angle shot

Main reason for going for this case is the clear door. Mods to come are the Arctic Cooling Silencer for the 9800Pro (ordered, waiting for the company to get stock) and an LCD Screen built into the front. There's the possibility of mounting a power swtch to the top of the case, but I've got the PC to turn on by pressing any key on the keyboard so I'm fine at the moment.

The LCD screen is either going to be mounted in the 3 floppy bays or in the blue lit square to add emphasis, leave your toughts on where is should be in the discussion thread
