I recently rebuilt, case modded, and slightly improved an old Emachines W3107. I've added some fun hardware and software and just made it a music recording computer for my band so we can have cheap demos but mostly its just a everyday machine. I just wanted to throw up some stats and pics and hear what you all think. Keep in mind this was my FIRST build and i did it for under $300-350!

On the bottom of the faceplate you can see I've added some intake fans and under the faceplate there's a usb rig with blue tooth, extra flash memory, wireless mouse receiver and a Netgear 300N Dual band adapter.
