I would've just lost the one made from the DFI box and kept the other since that would be 4 pics of 2 cases. Please feel free to put them up again.

I would like to enter, but I don't stand a chance, because all of my cases are in ok shape. I have one right now which was $50 with a 550Watt power supply. The power supply was preety shitty till i got a mushkin 650Watt power supply. I can still give it a try later on.

I only have this picture for now but rest assured I've got my other three coming up. And If I understand correct, we can have 2 entries so my labor of love AM2 sytem might participate to show its ugly face. Its in a black standard case, yet the insides beg too be shown. By the way in the cardboard box is a Pentium 3 866 with a geforce 2 gts, 512 megs of pc-133 and a 80 gig WD hdd.
I will post more photos soon.
Yes, two entries but 4 pics between the two so that's one more image of the first and two of the second or three of one and one of the other. That's up to you.

I'm sorry, I should have CLEARLY specified that I fully read and understood the contest rules and guidelines, I just assumed, especially that half of the thread is already dedicated to the 4 photos rule, that when I said 4 photosI meant 4 total and I believe after werty316's comment its clear that people have to read the rules. (I dont understand either werty...) Anyways I was thinking about 3 photos old pentium, 1 photo am2 rig. I'll hit you guys up tomorow with that....ANd by the way, do you guys want to hear why we need a new case/need that beautiful Thermaltake bling, or is this contest strictly based on photos?
thank you and good luck to all!

Considering that going over the limit with photos means a DQ and I AM trying to help keep people from getting DQ'ed you might understand that I am only looking out for YOUR best interests since I've got nothing to gain here. The way your post (original BTW) was worded made it sound as if you intended to post three more images of that rig and more of the AMD rig which is why I was reminding you of the limits.

If you can't appreciate the fact that I'm only attempting to keep as many people in this contest as possible then I'm sorry I wasted my time and yours.

all good, I fully understand(and appreciate your time...), I'm in between work and school, so the pictures will be for later. Nice to see some people on the internet that still have a bit of respect and patience, btw....

and with such a sweet contest, I don't understand the low number of participants...
(I'm sorry for my weird phrasing, English happens to be my second language, and I have a particular way of talking in French or English...so I've been told)

Hey, nice to have a Quebecer here. I'm from the corner too (Montreal). Funny debate from our politicians yesterday eh?

We've got some nice entries in the contest so far! Hope more people will come~

Thanks madstork91! (eep, I mispelled that as madstock 3 times, maybe you should consider changing )

I spent a lot of time on this case, I kept running out of parts so I really had to optimize. One big problem is that legos are NOISY, they tend to vibrate and reflect the really high pitches, so I'm thinking of adding some sort of foam padding to the design.

...It can only make it better, right?
