So rather than botching my cube I'm going to work my way up and learn some modding skills. I'm hoping to achieve something similar to spackley's "Budget G3 Powerhack". Here's what I'm looking at: Intel Core i3-3245 GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H Antec Basiq BP350 Phanteks PH-TC90LS 2x4GB PNY 1333Mhz (reusing) OCZ Vertex 4 128GB (reusing) Radeon HD 7750 (later) I have been a Mac user for 13 years (it all started with an Indigo iBook G3 366Mhz when I was a junior in high school). I am probably more excited about getting in to the vintage case mod scene than is healthy. Please let me know what you think. I'll get some disassembled pictures up over the weekend.
