I get my hand on some old hardware, but I didn't want to spend much money to buy a case, so I decided to build one on my own.
The high end hardware: :P
Pentium II 266 mhz
128 mb RAM
old ASUS mainboard with onboard video card
WD 40 gig
old AT PSU (ripped off a 468 rig)
Because the case should not cost much money, I used a lot of stuff I had lying around. I just had to buy adhesive foil and some wood. The future case:
The side and the top were bonded with the foil:
Then I cut the wood profiles and glued them on the side elements:
Dowels and glue connect the corner pieces with the middle once.
I had to cut some holes for the plugs.
At the end I put everything together and installed the hardware. But it looked a bit boring, so I mount a CCFL under the motherboard.
