what I did is not THAT crazy, but I had my grandfather make me a side window, he cut the metal, and I put some plexi behind it, doesn't look bad actually, and yesterday, I added the hard drive of an older computer we're going to throw away, but it didn't fit in the drive bay, so I removed the cover you put on it when there's no floppy drive, and now the HD is sticking out of the computer...

dude seriously. cut out some line breaks in your sig there. i mean if you want your system stats, at least just seperate them with : or something and make it two or three lines. thats annoying.

i have
processor intel HT 2.8
512 ddrRam
Nvidia Ge Force FX 5200 direct x 9.0b
HD 100gb

whith that, hoy much detail on the textures or bumpmapping i can support (ive already downloaded the latest driver for the nvidia chipset), because when i set the shadows and ilumination to medium the game performance goes too damn slow, i dont activate antialiasing, but i want to know how do you guys that have 5200, how your settings are set?
one more thing does the fan thing on the pc really work? i think that maybe a little crazy, but, as much cool the pc is, i will have better performance?

well i have many fans in my comp but if your refering to the side LED blue fan then the answer is... "i guess it works" i kept my comp at a steady 46C with that fan and 3 others soooo i guess it did its part and still does although i got a new heatsink and now my temps are steady at 36C even better :-)

Pleease, you wanna talk about ghetto, listen to what my best friend did. When we (I did most of the work) upgraded his computer 3 years ago, he didnt want to spend the money to go buy a new case, so we had to use his old gateway's case. When I went install the new power supply, his case didnt have screw mounts in right places, so he ended up using this fast drying liquid metal stuff to pretty much glue the thing in (its only fallen off once since then). Anyway so we start up the computer after its fully assembled and run it for about 2 hours when I noticed that the CPU temp was getting pretty high. I told him he'd really need a new case with more fans to cool the thing off. He just looked at me and said no, he knew what to do. He grabbed a freakin drill and drilled holes in case to vent the SOB and put a fans in where he drilled the holes. Now THAT is ghetto.
