    I'm not sure if this has beenn posted before, however if it has feel free to trash the thread.

    I'll start the ball rolling with a pick of the Home brew AMD 1GHz, system. It currently has a Radeon 9600 card not the fabled GeForce2 MX, but I only have the card until the end of the week.

    Sorry the focus is off towards the bottom of the pic;)

    I'm sure that denjeff is proud of his computer. If he wasn't interested in the Mac he probably wouldn't be here. We just need to try to encourage him to be a switcher!

    I don't have the balls to open my PowerBook. Here's a shot of what it looks like though, courtesy of www.kodawarisan.com.

    My old user was *Censored* I'm not quite sure I remember who denjeff was.

    Also thats just how my computer sits, with the doos off, other wise my old GeForce2 overheats playing games quite often.

    ok ok ..

    I don't have a picture of it, and I apologize it is a PC I'm sorry, I have a roll-your-own dual AMD MP 2800+, 512Mb of ECC DDR, 120Gb Hitachi deskstar HD, Promise ATA 133 RAID, dual NEC USB 2.0 controllers, Adaptec 2940, NV GF 2 MX video, and even though it is a PC I didn't totally ruin it and kept the windows where they belong, in the side of my house. Runs FreeBSD 5.1, and via Linux compatibility library is currently running folding@home as I'm typing. I did have a few Macs (beige G3 w/ G4@466Mhz, ATA66, better HD, OS X 10.1.5; PMac7600 w/ G3@266Mhz, a few HD's, ATI Rage Pro graphix, OS X 10.2.8, it CAN be done) but I gave them to my parents and my brother. I do have a PMac 6100/66 still somewhere...... lol
    May see if I can get a pic of the last roll you own dualie AMD I built.. they were nearly identical.

    Heres mine:

    I am working on modifing a G4 case and putting a PC motherboard and chip inside it. The G4 that used to be in the case is dead, so I might as well use the case for something.

    [​IMG]

    In the picture I have:
    2500XP, Geforce 4Ti4200 PC
    2500XP, Radeon 8500 Shuttle XPC
    1200Mhz, AIW Radeon Video editing PC
    PowerBook G4 550

    Broken Sega Game Gear I still have not got around to fixing.

    putting PC board in a Mac case

    Or, even better something that may never happen but I'd still like to see all the same is a Mac board that would fit a standard ATX case, or maybe a mod to allow that....
    Could you imagine having a G5 or even a dualie G4 in a midtower? All the expansion you could possibly want, sure you'd give up good looks but for a power user, what's looks anyway?

    Because I thought what was wanted was the inside of machines, and pretty much all Macs looks the same (of each model I mean), custom PC's are more interesting in this respect...or can be anyway ;)

    Oh well, just to make you happy. Here's my Dual 1Ghz MDD w/superdrive. It's got an additional CD burner, a second harddrive and a USB2 card over what you usually get as stock. Still not that exciting though...but it is really tidy :rolleyes:
