    ok been along time on updates. Cant say I have really got all that much acomplished, more brainstormin then anything.

    I have finished the case after much debate as too what i wanted to do.
    The earlier pics in the post of the case ended up being a test case.
    so i just remade it using different tools and measurements.

    GRUM
    2 - **** off the graphics card or whatever is making the plexy box so tall. and throw in a smaller card. and cut it down. remove the power from the plexy alltogether and throw it in another fanned box. with or without the hdd.

    Ya I was really considering pullin the video card and thinkin about puttin
    the power supply somewhere else. I mean besides the low power and
    heat of the via the whole idea is the compact size.

    In the end though i decided that it would be ashame to not take
    advantage of the Pci slot and limit my expansion possabilities.
    +
    I can easily take the computer out and bring it in the house for servicing
    or whatnot. Not sure what im going to do for powering it in the house
    yet. I will probably just use a ac atx power that has at least 17amp on
    the 12v line. From what i have read it seems that would be enough to
    power the opus. (not pluging into the mobo atx connector, just using
    the 12v from AC psu to the opus 12v in)

    Here is a pic of the finished product.

    okay the other reason i decided on keeping the video card was the 800x480
    resolution so here are some pics of the difference between 800x600 and 800x480.

    To see the difference better i would save the pics so you can zoom in on them.

    First pic is 800x600
    second pic 800x480

    I also have pics that are closer up if anyone is interested
    anyway after you look at the differance it is obviose that the true resolution blows 800x600 out of the water

    I know the diet well! Used to get a free cheeseburger with every big mac meal using my student card! Or you got a free bacon roll with every breakfast. Made worse by the fact the Ex used to give me hers too!

    Yeah post the pics, dunno what you mean about the skinz though...

    Ya u gotta love mcdonalds man. The thread you are talkin about is it the monster "the quest for 800x480" or sumin like that. Cause if thats the one I had posted early on in that thread what my findings were.

    Although I did not post pics but if I can easily take nice clear high res pics of the difference in 800x600 and the good ole 480.

    And the big one, the pic showing the screen recognize 800x480.

    Oh and regarding the skinz, i meant like some pics of the front ends in action with varios skinz from an external screen shot (so you can really get an idea of what it looks like,fingers included for button size referance)

    . check out this pic and you will get me.
