and then build the computer from there

if this would wokr how would the os be installed

I have never seen it done, I think it is also against copyright, or something... That would be very cool to do but I dont think you can buy alot of the parts. Well I have never seen it be done, doesn't mean it can't be!

kevin rose from the screensavers made a mac clone and a mac/pc hybrid. here the link to his project
so its quite possible but i'm nto sure how much you would safe if anything.
