This is a sweet setup. I need to get me a all-in-one 486 one day. The desk is quiet unusual with that double shelf setup - is that how the desk came or did you make that yourself?

It's an Ikea Jerker, which was a modular desk popular with computer folk as well as music producers. If you google image search them, you can see all the different configs that people have used.

Ha, this is my Socket 754 setup exactly, except I have the Athlon64 3700+ alongside Radeon 850XTPE AGP and Audigy2 ZS.

The power supply's sadly being returned since it's cutting out under load, going to be dropping my old 650TX back into it and loading down the 12V rails so it actually boots, a bit janky but it's what I've to work with until I buy an older Antec TruePower or something

Nice case. I did like the lancool dragon lord case's, they were very well put together.

It took a lot of convincing from the gf to finally stop using it as my main one since I needed one for this project, I adore it, everything being toolless and easy to take apart is the big draw of it for me

Yeah it's an artscow pad I grabbed years ago, I ran the cover art through Vector Magic for it to scale up well enough to be printed, came out really well

My actual retro test build... P4-2.8Ghz Northwood, 2x1GB Kingston DDR400, i865PE, HD3450 512MB, Audigy, SATA 120GB and 40GB IDE (for Win 9x switching vga obviously), Enermax EG375AX-VE (W) P24 great PSU, Asus SATA DVD, using both Linux and Win 9x, waiting for the 3,2Ghz cpu to arrive and maybe risking testing the Prescott on this but I have to wait for the mosfet heatsink first.
