Here's an inexpensive, complete system that would make a good project computer for trying some new ideas...

Hello:

It is a barebones system, not a complete system. What size HD does it have, for example? No, it looks to be a case, motherboard, and CPU, which isn't too bad a deal for the price, but hey, it's a 733mHz Celeron! :roll: I just priced a Duron 1.4gHz, a PC Chips ATX motherboard, ATi Mobility AGP video, and a Evercase ATX case for $124! 8)

Well ok....you have to supply a hard drive and a memory chip, maybe an old cdrom, which many of us have laying around. One good thing about these 810 chipset boards is XP has built-in support for everything. You load XP, everything works. A 733 Celeron is perfectly satisfactory for most uses. My C3 SFF runs at 733mhz, and works just fine.

This looks like a good starter computer for kids, maybe for your parents as an E-mail machine, etc. If you had a bunch of older hardware laying around, here's a good use for it.

I'd look at it as a cheap basis for experimentation, try that duct setup you've been thinking about. Here's a lo-heat computer that could be made very quiet....for cheap bucks.
