    Do you plan some sort of internal KVM type thing to share the peripherals? It looks neat dude. This makes me miss building systems :(

    cool project there :)

    hi,

    that's cool actually :)
    How are you going to use it?
    Separate screens and Synergy to use the mouse and keyboard on both computers or will you swtich around from computer to computer on one screen?

    That's pretty cool; a Mini inside a PC case with a PC running inside. I agree with one person, though; if you have two screen hooked up, you could run both OS's at the same time. However, if there's no need for that, a KVM switch is cool too.

    ya that one guy with two 30in monitors did this well they part about sharing mouse and keyboard.

    ya having two screens and be able to move over to each without doing anything would be absolutely amazing.

    Not very creative, you basically just set it in the case and ran some wires around.

    Are you going to go for something spectacular / eye catchy with the case?
    I'm asking because if I ever decided to go through the effort of piecing together my own computer, I'd make sure to make a nice custom case to underline my efforts :cool:

    At least the only bit that counts works!

    Wow. wish I'd thought of this when I was tossing up on mini vs. imac vs. pc for infrequent gaming. You have it all!!

    just install osx86 or whatever it's called and avoid the four coloured fenster!
