The rear, jerryrigged the rear fan and power supply in there... spare PCI brackets, zipties, some old motherboard standoffs and VGA fasteners did the job.

Front

The original guts, all filthy and disgusting. 2.0 GHz Pentium 4 with 1GB RAM

Overview of all the guts

I used some male to female Arduino pins to reroute the original NetVista power switch and LEDs to the motherboard.

Another shot... the SSD is chilling in a spare bay underneath the optical drive.

All fired up and running! Temperatures are fine, idles in the low-mid 30s and under Prime95 stress test, high 60s/low 70s. These cases are built very well and are TANKS! Also pretty easy to work with.

This system is fairly similar internally to my current system, except that mine has a GTX 980 Ti, and some other differences. Also, mine is the 3770K, not the 3770. I have macOS Sierra and Windows 10 Pro installed on it.

What range of XP games are you able to play with the GTX 750? I've thinking about getting one for my XP SP2 build to replace my Geforce 7950 but don't want to break the older "2003" ish titles.

Stuff like NHL06, Sims 2, GTA VC... nothing terribly intensive. But it also works fine for GC/Wii games through Dolphin.
