Post your custom PC!!!

Firstly, I know that there is a Post your Windows Setup thread, but PC's may not run Windows. They also may not run OS X.

If you built it yourself, post it here!

Specs of mine:

-- Antec Three Hundred case
-- 350W PSU
-- ASRock G41M-Le motherboard
-- 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4600
-- 2GB Kingston DDR2 800MHz
-- 200GB Seagate IDE HDD
-- 512MB XFX GeForce 9400GT'
-- Vista Ultimate

All for $275 shipped.

Lol way WAY too many wires.

I have all the standard wires plus the 4 from the temperature reader and 4 more for controlling fan speeds. I also have 2 from the sound cathodes, 1 for the IDE-SATA converter, and several several others..

In that case, good sir, you are excused.

Here are some (hopefully) better pictures. I took the PSU out of the hard drive bays and added a small tri-color LED fan to the front of the case.

Oh, and I cleaned up some.

Did you just mount some LEDs inside it and then run that to the Power Supply?

I don't think mine came with any LEDs near the DVD tray.

Where the DVD tray is. Above the power button. Theres a green "bar". I kinda assumed that that was supposed to light up. But, on your pictures it doesn't seem to light up.
