My new old pc

Post by kidw/32+systems » Fri Dec 09, 2011 10:38 am

I got this broken 1541 drive and I have wanted to fit a new computer in to some thing so this is what happened.
I love that sticker.

I reused the power switch by adding a spring inside so now it is only a momentary switch. It is pretty crammed inside but I haven't had any overheating issues, the CPU fan sucks in and the case fan blows out.

Intel DG41AN Mobo (I need the parrallel port)
Intel Pentium E6600 Wolfdale 3.06GHz
4GB Ram
Hitachi slot load DVD drive
250W PSU
Windows 7 Pro

Total cost ~$300
PlayChoice games 50/54 37 toppers

I find myself struggling to keep a parallel port these days, I had one computer with a parallel port and it died so now I've got to go find another.

Prettyful, love what you did with the slanted USB ports. The parallel port brings back fond memories...
