This was the box of junk I got from Craiglist for $20 bucks. I had 4 optical drives and IDE cables and Floppy drive and this case with the motherboard, 7 sticks of RAM 4 one gig stix and 3 quarter gig stixs. The power supply, 3 video cards the 7800 gt I have in here, a TNT 32mb one lol and some other red one that say agp on it. NO hardddrive, so orginally I had a 20 gig IDE one laying around and used it to just see if anything would work and it did!
So I bought the 200 gig one of Craiglist for $15 bucks... so all together I have $35 bucks wrapped up in this machine, we use my sons HD Tv for a monitor its a 27 inch plasma tv from a couple years ago with a VGA input on it.

This was the first time I got to plug everything in, and screw everything down, and finally turn it on (with my fingers crossed of course). Figure might as well try it on $20 bucks instead of a couple hundred...

Kids are happy it runs and I am happy they aren't playing those stupid flash games and crap on my other pc.
