I wanted to make a "Ghetto Fabulous PC" mod for a while now, about a month. I dreamed up the idea when I was bored one day.

You see, I have all this old crap lying around, and I thought it would be a good idea to create something that has never been done.

First off, I have an old FIC VA-503+ Super Socket 7 mobo. I wanted to put gold lighted fans on the chips such as the northbridge and southbdrige, and then put gold heatsinks on the L2 cache memory.

The processor will be a Pentium-133 with a generic gold fan.

I also had a 512K ATI Prism VGA8 card, and I figured that putting cooling fans that I would paint/color gold would look "pimp."

For RAM, 48MB of EDO, complete with chips colored gold with art markers.

The power supply will be a generic gold Rhycom. I plan to select a generic, super shiny, platinum colored case, complete with window.

The sound card will be an Aztech Labs Sound Galaxy 16, with gold fans on the chips. It's memory will be heatsinked.

The rest doesn't matter too much, but what this PC is going for is looks, not power. You know, kind of like in the ghetto where black kids buy cheap Nokia phones, and "pimp" them with lights, faceplates, and "Jamster" crap.

GENERAL IDEA (Piece it together in your head!)

It would only cost about $50 for all the stuff. The bitch is painting everything with gold markers.

I also gotta find a 1.5GB hard drive for it. That way, it could run WINDOWS 98!

Dude, with that setup; you will be scoring 20,000+ in 3dMark. And be able to run Server '03 without a doubt. Not to mention, UT2k4 will run at 250 frames/sec. Sweet, dude! :thumbsup:
