It all started with my capstone project. (Getting folding at home running in the mac lab at school.) Some of the funding is coming from my mom. She has recently discovered YouTube and netflix. I wanted to build a system that could fold for me and stream videos for her. I already have some parts from older builds and computer scrapping. In my parts stash: Nvidia 8600gt (Yes, I know it sucks a left one. But for $35...) Intel Pentium 4 @1.8 GHZ (Overclock?) 384 MB of rambus, or 512 MB of ddr assorted hard drives, I think 30GB is the largest one. Old atx case. I'm currently in my fourth year of woodshop. So I have acesses to all the power tools I need and a mill left over from the metal working class. About 10 years ago they replaced the metal class with ceramics, so lame. I'll be making a media center case in wood shop, probably out of walnut.
