    The $1500 MOBO works fine on a cardboard box .
    Who needs a fancy pancy case when you have a box .

    You posh bastard :D
    What's wrong with a box ?
    We actually could start a thread "show your box" :shock:
    I'm sure myself and museumman are not alone.
    Havabeer, why don't you start a "show your box" thread under ghetto mods .

    assembling your bits on a desk isn't a "case" by definition.
