Going to be a while till my next computer build but I found the next case I'm going to be using at a yard sale yesterday for $7 :).

Thermaltake MozartTx (Youtube Review - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyEcdCCQnA0 )

It's about the side of a water cooler base.

It's missing the 6 bay harddrive cage but I will probably just mod a new one from spares I have laying around or pick up one to mod online.

Didn't look to close at the other PC stuff since I never buy used and he had some older motherboards there but I probably should have :P. Turns out there was a EVGA X58 still in the case which is a pretty freaking nice board that I almost want to do a build around :P.

Will definitely have to watch for that guy to have another sale.


Also picked up a Radeon HD 3450 w/ svideo out for $0.50.

Picked up a nice Samsonite card table for $16 (not my pic):

Perfect for what I needed- pop up soldering desk, supergun table, and maybe, cards. I've been looking for a nice card table for years, but wasn't looking to spend a lot on something as nice, or go with the cheap wally world offerings.

Joe, if you ever spill water on it wipe it up as soon as possible. My grandfather used one to hold a bucket up under a leak and ever since then the top has some solid divots.

Noted. Maybe use a plastic sheet (or vinyl) to cover it up for recreational use?

Bought a pretty nice entertainment center for $65. Combination of plywood and oak construction, in great shape. I just need to cut some holes in the back of the bottom shelf areas for running cords, that's why I didn't close the door there.

The NES/SNES/Genesis are hooked up there right now, but are probably going to move along with the TV they were hooked up to (Sony Trinitron CRT) back to the game room. I'm making room by swapping out for a smaller chair, the one that's in there is just a bit too big.

Sweet!

I think Sherlock might have a thing or two to say about getting a smaller chair. :wink:

It's okay, I think he just likes my lap, anyway. I'm convinced he's going to become permanently attached at some point. ;)

(For those that don't know, Sherlock's my cat. He's an absolute mess, in the best way.)

That is a nice compact wall unit; appears to be made for a 4:3 CRT. I see you have a gap above the TV. My Wega had the same gap (though not as much) in the wall unit even though mine is a 4:3 HD CRT; I added a wood shelf up there to hold a switch box, cable box and Bluray player. For your gaming wall unit could be storage for the extra controllers.
