Here is a pick of my progress which was to be my MacWorld mod. I have decided to make it a dedicated server and gene folder for folding@home. This is a picture of the front with DVDr, fan control and 7" ws lcd. The lcd will show the proteins as they are folding. The innards are going to be a pc for folding cuz there is more power for less money. The server part will be for back up and sending media to my xbox 360 via Connect360 running OSX tiger server. I am going to use an older mac mini for the server part and some fw 400 drives.
Tayklor-Yeah I could install OSX on it, but it wont run like it does on a Mac which just isn't good enough, besides Winblows has a better F@H interface.
Here is a small update on the mod. It is up and running, yet aesthetically unfinished and I have yet to afford the x1900 which will be coming very soon. F@H is running on the 2.6 CeleronD @ 3.46ghz. No reason to keep from folding while I work on it. Here are two pics through the small window I made so you can see the UV working!
I may just get a Mini in there yet! I had a deal on one for only 150 bucks, but it fell through. :'(
Here is an update shot of the internals. You can see that I have used several Mac parts-G5 hd cage, G4 MDD optical cage, the superdrive is even from my old MDD. Sure it will get some more grooming inside but this is a build on the cheap and I will mostly focus on the lower section where the window is.
I will be airbrushing soon, stay tunned. Oh and there is some room in the top for a mini...

Sadly all of my digital cameras are crappy, So far the best cam I have at the moment is my cell phone.
I need to get some wire mesh to make a grill for the front of the case to cover up that fan. Also I need to change out the blue to red and paint the power supply case. Also invest in some round IDE cables. I've had this case since 1997 and has been though a lot.
Your system still looks 10 times better then mine.
Its a seven inch portable TV, widescreen that my wife picked up for me somewhere. Its a tight squeeze. I know a lot of people use the portable PSone screens quite a bit. As long a the pcb board that attaches to the LCD isnt bigger than the opening, 7" should match a 5.25 bay. One thing you may have to mod is the connections. Mine were on the sides of the PCB and stuck out of the side of the case. I had to change the to run on the back of the board.
