The only comment right now is that it's a REALLY... REALLY... REALLY,REALLY,REALLY,REALLY,REALLY bad idea to be cutting with a Dremel with your electronics just sitting in the open air. The metal dust is probably all over your PCBs.
I recommend stuffing it in anti-static bags until you are...
Honestly, I think you'd be happier if you did. Imagine setting everything up only to find you have a bum chip that dies in a week. :p
I'd think it would make upgrades a lot easier, unless you have no frequent plans for this like some of us freaks do :)
A case is designed to protect your components from the random crap floating around your room. While a computer can work without one, why the HELL would you pay nearly $2000 for a computer and put a risk on it like that?
Get a case.
PS: Your post is freaking annoying. We don't need to...
On smaller parts like that you will want to do only a couple thin layers of paint on them... remember that paint adds thickness to objects, so when you are painting buttons and such don't lay so much paint on that it will stick or not be able to got back together after you paint.
Yeah, it was a bit tricky to find. From the main page instead of going to buy XPC on the left, go to "Buy accessories" in the middle...
or just use this link
Bottom left is where you wanna look.
Depending on what generation it is, shuttle sells the bare cases they have scraped from RMAs on their website for $10 each (mostly to cover shipping)
Might wanna check if you can pick one of those up for a quick fix.
OMG, he tells you he'd not old enough to cash a freaking money order (something that usually requires no ID and no bank account) and you expect him to be old enough to take items to the post office and ship them?
Come on people, reality check.
I've been getting checks and money orders...
ALWAYS SHIP COMPUTER PARTS IN ANTISTATIC BAGS.
There are NO substitutes and NO exceptions. If you don't do this, you deserve a NEGATIVE eval on whatever evaluation system you use.
Not only that, but you are liable for any static damage that is done to the item during shipping and until...
That was more directed at the size of the PCB, not the power of the card. I have seen some low end cards that are bigger than the latest and greatest.
I have a rage128 Pro in my HTPC dealy and the thing is huge because it has built-in cable out... which I have hooked up to a TV in card...
The best way to get the feel of vector in Illustrator, outside of using books, is to take pictures of your favorite cartoon characters and re-draw them. Then, when you feel comfortable, take an entire scene and re-draw it... then work with taking a 3-d scene and making it 2-d in a cartoonish...
Well if you really want my school email address it is bpfields@NOSPAMcincinnatistate.edu, but I never check it.
AFAIK, the point of the non-free email address is so people can better track you down if you try and screw them over. I'm more than willing to give you my home address, phone...
I think it would be perfect. With 3 exhausts that CPU should not get hot.
The only thing I would be concerned about is what it says in the newegg reviews. You can't get a big video card in there and you can't get more than one HD... if you can deal with that I guess you are set.
