    One of my favorite business tools - the new transparent case computer.

    3 hard drives - biggest is the 1000 Gig.

    4 megs RAM.

    Intel Core 2 CPU 3.0 GHz

    The case has 3 four inch cooling fans, 2 fans on the power supply, and one on the high end NVIDIA graphics card.

    Windows XP loaded in just a few minutes - almost thought it didn't do it right it was so fast.

    Now that's a drag when it comes to the 10 minute Edit limit on Lawnsite ;)

    Can't change that link now.

    Was certain I copied the right Youtube code.

    Try this one:


    I'll test it too - looks right.

    Ya' know, I thought one guy on TreeBuzz forum was making fun at me when he posted some kind of abbreviation. Then I found out later that he was asking if it had a Nitrous Oxide System.

    Good point. I'd heard that too. A few are. But I meet a lot of people going to bigger cases for cooling and more hard drives now. Also, the graphics card in this model with it's own fan is about 6 times the size of my last graphics card. I think cooling related stuff is accounting for about half of the size increase.

    Nice PC. What are you using it for? Are you a gamer?

    Our older son who built it is a gamer.

    But I use it for my website, document and some image stuff.

    It makes everything happen real fast.
