    Grandson's Gift

    My wife and I finally found what to give to our Grandson for his Christmas gift. Being that he will be 13 in Dec. we thought that we give him a computer. The cost of a factory puter is to steep of a price tag so she say's that I should build him one and paint it for him. So that is what I have done. Today I painted the case and assembled it. The specs are as follows:
    Motherboard - MSI MS-6378, Processor - AMD Athlon 1800XP (Thoroughbred core), Memory - Kingston PC133, 512mg, HDD - WD ATA100 10gig, sound is built in, NIC is built in, 4 USB (2rear, 2front), CD-RW. Have a old Dell keyboard that will be painted also, mouse and a CTX 15" monitor. Here are a few pics of the tower before and after.
    Here are a couple of before.

    And here are a couple of after.

    Haven't applied the clear coat as of yet, will do that when I finish putting the color on the keyboard. All ideas and comments are welcomed. Happy Modding. :idea:

    Very nice! I assume you'll leave it to your grandson for future upgrades?
