    extreme makover (cheap)

    I bought my PC used through Ebay. The first thing I noticed was there were some dents in the case and it smelled of strong cigarette smoke. Upon opening I found the HDD dangeling inside. Well, all was well when I turned it on. Time for an extreme makeover since I needed a power supply and the case was practically free $30.00 for case and 500 power supply.

    My old case:



    New case - I did not really like the pictures at Tiger Directbut upon receiving the case I see that it's very well made and looks better than I thought it would

    thanks well, I wish it were my house but yet not - it's way beyond my means.

    Everyone on this street drives brand new sports cars, hot-rod 57' chevy, or something really nice. The guy down the street has one of those Peterbuilt pickup trucks and toys galore (several custom harleys and dirt bikes) We drive cars that are in the 80's - kind of out of place for this neighborhood.

    Damn you got me cash. I took some more "western" photos - one of rik's brand new house next door. It really is boring here as there is nothing within walking distance. (this camera is 'el cheapo - records on floppy disk)

    Rik's house - amazing, it's all concrete but the roof
