    If that's getto, than you should see:
    1) My 5/12V bay/cathode bus
    2) My PSU fan and case fans
    3) My mouse rewire. Twist, tape, twist, tape...... I use semi clear/brown packing tape.
    4) Window duct to the outside made from a dryer duct and cardboard. The fan sits in the cardboard.
    5) Mousepad is a piece of 1" thick foam, cause I'm too cheap to buy a real one.
    6) Twist and tape on my clock radio's speaker wire and a headphone jack, giving me 5 speaker radio.
    7) Twist and tape on my headphones.
    8) My CPU fan is held on by gravity and a cardboard reducer.
    9) I don't have ANY thermal paste.
    10) My hard drive cooler is a pair of brass bars bolted to the sides.
    11) I took the stamped grills out of my case with pliers, that's all.

    Is that Getto enough for you??????

    hmm, i see your point, well, just the mismatched bay covers, its more of crappy, not ghetto, sorry =P

    i did have a nicely ghetto stereo on my comp though, i wish i'd taken a pic, had a seperate PSU sittin next to my case, wired (wires shoved in molexes) hooked to a Alpine CDA-7873 i just bought off a friend for $40, hooked to a couple b0rked 6x9s that he gave me (tweeter cones are torn), and all the connections were just shoved together, then to extend the ghetto-ness, i had the CD changer hooked with a couple nails in it, hooked to test leads, hooked to a cord, plugged into the output from my comp, it was sweet.

    the best i can probably confess to is attaching a fan to a TNT2 with a glue gun and hairbands. I used the glue gun sticks cut to lenght and the ends melted with a soldering iron stuck to the fan and then the hair bands round the card to hold it is place. It's still in use today!

    Well, it's not computer modding but I was involved in a fairly ghetto motorhome conversion where we roofchopped an old London Bus.

    LOL@Pug I've seen it done with school buses here in the US, but yours takes the cake.

    BTW, what is your avatar Pug? It reminds me of a plasma based processing tool.

    Well, do you want to overclock your smaller family members? i know i did, andk now he runs faster, longer, harder, and at 10C cooler!

    actually, he doesnt, he sists still in front of it. the only reason the pringle tube is there is to take the fan away from the cage without restricting airflow, as the rabbit liked to touch the fan :D.
