I purchased a dell optiplex gx1 motherboard and a p3 500mhz deal off ebay for $1.99.....and i was going to make a computer out of spare stuff from deep in my basement for my sister because shes in college majoring in graphic design and has no computer (can you imagine?)
she REALLY needs to do a powerpoint project asap,
but i have no case for the computer,
so i was just going to run it without a case as i have done before,
but im a little bit of a newbie when it comes to computers and on all of the computers ive worked on have been different than this (for one never dealt with a desktop before just towers)
the computers i have worked on have like the little plug things on the mobo and the wires that go to the case which go to the power button reset button internal speaker etc...(sorry im not good with words)
But the dell optiplex gx1 has none of that,
so my question basically is,
how do i turn the dell optiplex on with all the parts,
but no case?
Im sorry if this is a stupid question,
but by the time my father whos knows alot more about computers than i do gets off his lazy ass and just looks at it,
i could already be getting replies from here and be installing software on the optiplex............
Im sorry if you think im kinda an idiot for asking this,
but you would have found that out anyway................................
