Now I wasn't thinking of buying everything here at once but I was just wondering if you guys think I should change anything or add anything. Also I don't know where I would get a front opening cover for my case and if I could get something cool that would be even better. This is more of a style upgrade not a hardware as I think the hardware is good enough for now and in the next year I will upgrade but by then I will have more money to spend at the time of buy so I think it will still better in proformance and in looks :) .



Here is what I have right now

19" White Monitor (Want a black one to match with the theme of black)

Black Wireless keyboard

Logitech optical mouse (not wireless I know it should be but the wireless mouse that came with the keyboard was ball and track and I won't use that [-peep-])

Creative 2 chanel speakers (ack these things sux I need a new soundsystem)

White 52x CD Drive (thinking about just removing this once I get the burner/DVD as it is white and just buying a black 52x some time in the futer)

White Floppy drive (as for the black floppy drive)

A7N8X deluxe (bought in 2003 January)

2400+ AMD

R 9700 Pro

20 gig western digital 7200 2mg Buffer
40 gig western digital 7200 2mg buffer

2x256mb 2700 OC Ram ([-peep-] is crap I think, I think its the reson I cant OC my computer to the 2800+ I have major sability issuse with the comp when ever I OC it even if I just go to the 2600+)

And now the case http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=11-125-22...

Front panel broke, use Epoxy. Actually modeling cement would work if it was poly styrene (not the foam, the stuff used in models), but that's unlikely.

Use whatever floppy you like. Pull one out of a dead computer and paint it black. The front panel comes off.

First I wish I could just fix it but I lost the front panel like a few weeks ago and before that I lost the broken part. Since I broke the front panel (which was like 6 months ago) I have moved like 3 or so times I think more. I have doe alot of moving in my time. Second as for the A drive I really don't care and really don't use my A drive but its only 12 or so bucks thats nothing and a paint job would still look crappy. Style right now is the key I think everything else can hold me out for at least another year but then I will need to fully upgrade to an AMD64 if they keep the lead in gaming.

Obviously you don't know how to paint. All my painted drives look factory original, and a lot of PC makers including HP used painted drives at one time or another.
