This case, although nearly 20 years old, has room behind the motherboard tray for cables, and a cutout behind the PSU to run cables. I think it's pretty clean all things considered.
This is an ancient case from a local SI that is no longer in business. I've had a few different builds in it, but the original was a P4-based system. I think I did an ok job cutting the window in it a few years ago, considering I used a sawz-all. Maybe one day I'll clean up the cuts and put a nicer piece of acrylic in it. Maybe.
I removed the original cages from the front of the case and installed a much simpler cage from another case in order to maintain some stability but still clean up the inside.
I know the power supply and SSD aren't vintage at all, but they make the system bearable and actually usable for day-to-day YouTube watching.
It's either this 1000w G2 or a no-name 400W junker...
P8430 in 3DMark Vantage, for what it's worth.
I know this isn't the first SLI setup ever, and it certainly isn't the fastest, but it is noteworthy. This computer comes from a time when SLI was prohibitively expensive and impractical, much as it is nowadays. The 8800 GT disrupted the market because it offered 90% of the performance of an 8800 GTX at half the cost - leading many to the configuration you see here. Paired with a competent CPU, two 8800 GTs in SLI could, indeed, run Crysis, all for a fraction of the cost of a "GTX" powered system.
The build below is a collection of parts that I've been given over the years, along with some salvage components, and a couple key upgrades to make it more reliable. The CPU, Memory, Motherboard, and XFX Graphics card were all given to me by friends, the second card was left over from a Mac Pro upgrade, and the Case and PSU were salvage parts from old, unused systems. Obviously, the SSD and cooler were purchased recently to get the system up and running to replace my aging Xbox 360 as an HTPC. I'm glad the hardware is getting used!
