    Cheap, but cas = 2.5.

    How's that for a case?

    Throw in the HDD, it's $538.50.

    Make video 9700 Pro,$721.50
    Make video 9600 Pro 256MB,$687.50
    Make video 9600 Pro 128MB,$694.5

    That case is a little bad for airlflow IMO. As for the RAM, if he cranks up the voltage on them they should do Cas2 no problem

    This? Judging from the extra pictres, I'd say it had okay airflow.
    Will just the one fan be okay?

    Unless there are any more objections\suggestions, I guess Zephir should choose a video card out of my nice little list (haven't I ever heard of Nvidia? : omg: ) based on price mostly. I suggest the 9700 or 9800 if you can afford to go that high, but if you would rather not I guess one the 9600s will do (probably not the SE). I suppose 9600XT is an option. I would make sure I got one that came with Half-Life 2 (that deal is still there, isn't it?), if I were you.

    Anyway, that makes everything so far but video:

    Well the front looked pretty tight down to me for fan intake, as the outside of the front bezel was pretty much solid. As for nVidia, ATi is making a better product right now..

    I know, just saying. :)
    I'll keep looking for case I guess. And I (and Zephir) wouldn't mind a link to a good case.

    Actually I'd go with Mista K6's suggestion and then ya can stick that R9600 Spastic Edition in it and then get a 2 port KVM and crossover cable, then ya can run a DC program on both and use the Compaq to do something useful and serve the internet while ya play BF1942 or anyother game that ya like. Ya could also sell both video cards (the Compaq don't need one) and get an R9600P/XT or better.

    Check http://www.slickdeals.net, right now you can get a Maxtor 160GB 8mb Cache Hard Drive for $70 shipped no rebates or anything involved.
    If the stuff in glow sticks is truly toxic then why do they make so many flavors?
