The case is one I got from a friend a few years ago... Decent size tower, with 3 slots for CD/DVD drives, and 4 HardDrive / FloppyDrive slots. Currently I have a CD-RW, 48X cd reader, a floppy drive, and 2 hard drives (20GB & 60GB Western Digital)

The video card is also going to be upgraded, but I currently have an old ATI Capture card / TV Tuner with a few RCA outputs.

Also, I have a fan mounted to the front of the case as well, and plan on mounting a couple USB slots on the front..
