Build me a dirt cheap folder! (I got some parts..)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Heey! I got some leftovers from a rig that died.. I wanna get it up into a folder. CHEAP?

What I have:
Sct 754 AMD 3000+
2x 512 Single channed Pqu DDR 400
500 Watt generic PSU
CD drives
Keyboards, and mice, and even a monitor.

Either an AGP 6600Gt, a Geforce4, and a Geforce2...
Assorted PCI graphics cards.

Soo- What is the cheapest way to get this into a running folder?
It HAS to be in a case.. Small if possible. Matx? DUST FILTERS (No matter how ghetto) are NEEDED.. (Will be in BASEMENT and have CAT HAIR)

Thanks a ton!!

This will also be a part of my network 3d rendering farm.. Most of the time it will fold!


(Is this the right forum? I figure you guys know the best folding equipment..)

For filters, steal one of your moms old pantihose and stretch ot over the fan and poke it through the extensions of the screws on the other side. You'd be surprised how well pantihose work.
