    This is my very first case project ever done. well, ive been working on making a gaming pc console type to compete against my friends Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.lol. But i want the case to have the looking of a game console. I couldnt find a console looking case on my local pc store or online, so i said i should make my own case from scratch, so i started skeching my ideas in 2004 and never brought it up until today. Some will say it looks like a PS3, but i came up with this design long before ps3 came out, im surprise ps3 looks similar to this design. Finally! this case will come to life after 3 years being in sketch. The case will be constructed
    of brush aluminum. This sytem will be a dedicated gaming only installed with GAMEEX from Atari to N64 loaded with a total of 15,000 roms, and 55 pc games from 2005 to 2007 with no-cd patches. Windows will not boot directly into desktop, instead will boot directly into Gameex by doing a registry tweak, so no windows desktop will be behind it. Will be connected to a 45'' HDTV display, some games will be playing at 1280 x 720 and 1900x1080 at max settings, and using xbox 360 wireless controllers, and 5.1 surround sound. My goal is to keep system uder $600 dollars.

    MSI K9N4 Ultra-F (new - $59.54)
    1GB PC2-6400 DDR2 DIMM Memory Kit (new - $61.89)
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core Processor (used - $58.00)
    Fortron Source AX450-PNnb (new- $49.99)
    eVGA GeForce 8800 320 mb GTS Video Card (used - $240.65)
    Hitachi Deskstar T7K250 250GB Hard Drive (new - $53.00)
    Total $523.08 w/tax and shipping

    edit: nm, i'm a muppet, didn't read.

    Might want to add some actual progress, so the mods don't bin it!

    Looks awesome, reminds me of a project I was going to do with a compaq desktop PC before the motherboard went POP.

    I had designed my own interface program using VB, unfortunately it sucked. The project failed shortly after. I may take a new crack at it with that fancy new GUI program though. Thanks

    I can't wait to see this in action, its got a PS3 feel to it, very sleek. I like the wave in the top.
