coo. thatll come out good, i got the same **** computer(almost, i got a pavilion 7940, 1.0ghz, 133mhz fsb, 512mb ram, FRIED MOBO!!) i got a window in mine, a 120mm in back, 2 80's in front(drilled holes behind the bezel) and a 120 on the window over the pci cards. im in the process of getting a new mobo/processor/ram/video, and shove all that in there, cause that case is perfect for lan gaming, just gotta beef up that handle under the bezel(wait, is that a handle?) and do something about the cd lid on top being broken(gotta love younger brothers). but one thing to think about...also, have you checked the clearance on the back, to make sure that the plexi has a place to adhearse/screw to on the panel? o yea, one more thing, never uptate that bios....thats how my mobo fried, updated bios, ran for an hour, got a cpu overheat beep, pc still runnin, all fans shut off during halo, heard it quiet down, then smelt the **** cpu starting way overheating. atleast i was lucky and it didnt fry my harddrives...

****ty, but yea, the hard drive been a bit iffy, not sure if thats a handle but its great to play starcraft and unreal tournament goty cause u dont need much to run it at all. i think its a handle under the bezel and with my other case the cutout on the sword side is half done, ill post pictures of it when its all done, coming along real nice, now to find some good sandpaper to smooth it.

for anyone who cared i almost finished the sworded side, it looks a little something like this:

but due to time restraints i couldnt make all the corners like so:

and due to the stupid windows logo on the side shown here:
http://welsh.phpnet.us/photos/P8270256.JPG
i had to cut out the top right corner from the center and as i am to lazy to hold it in place, with expert engineering skills this was created to do my job:

the black oil bottle in the middle is what actually holding the piece which is bridging the two things together

reinforced cut off bits, not all the best cuts, but i got some emory cloth to sand out the bumbs and scraps though. also, had one or 2 break on my resulting in a cut a tad bit to deep.
