I have built around 40 systems now for customers and friends, so I decided to build a PC for my daughter. She has been playing around on my computer now for almost 5 years so I figured it was time she got her own. After all she has a nicer cell phone than I do, so what the hell?
This is what happens when you tell her to just get whatever she wants.
She definitely wanted a see-through case with goofy rainbow lights in it. Sorry if I offend any of you guys if you have something similar, but rainbow lights are really for little girls only.
I am also sorry if her rig is now more powerful that some of you grown-ups too.
Since the OS is still very stripped down, it is for now even more powerful than my own rig, even using only my old BFG 7900GT Overclocked edition. (She will inherit my 8800GTS soon enough) This is mainly due to the 4 Gb of DDR2 RAM she has. (I only have 2Gb DDR

Overclocked to 3.2GHz Orthos stable at 42c load. (Man I love these Intel chips) Still need to do a little more wire management and get some cute graphics on there, but for now it's done. Also, check out the HDD cage I stole from my 900. It really matches the mesh screens I installed behind the 80mm fan guards.
NOTE TO SELF: Never buy another acrylic case again. Wire management is way too hard!
