Thread: Worst Case Mod Ever

  1. #1


    http://www.speakeasy.org/~gbeier/worst.cas...ever/index.html

    Donít get me wrong, Iím sure G5 is a great computer, but I wanted a Dell for Christmas. I donít have any programs for Apple and didnít feel like waiting for them. I thought about selling it, but my parents would be upset with me. After all, this was a very expensive gift and it meant a lot to them to give to me.
    not just a G5. a dual G5. this is just... just... sad. it's akin to gutting a high end BMW so you can put the body on an entry level KIA.

    I can understand why...


    Anyway, I seen this done before, but the guy that I saw do it actually bought the G5 case only.

    EDIT: Look at this....
    Itís a good thing my parents donít know anything about computers, because Iím sure they would be really angry if they knew what I did. I have to say that I'm happy - I can keep on using XP.

    The board is a Biostar Micro ATX, with a 2200 Athlon XP with an Adaptec 29160 SCSI controller and two 36 GB Atlas 10K V hard drives. I am stuck using the onboard video because there is no AGP slot. I had no money for a SATA controller and quite honestly, I swear by SCSI (the G5 comes with SATA drives).

    In the future, I want to get an Athlon 64 board and CPU with AGP support for a decent video card.

    I use it mostly for Internet, ripping music/DVDs and pissing off my friend.

    I put all the parts from the G5 into a box and gave it to my friend. He was rather happy. I think he is going to try to install them into his G3 - I hope he's successful.
    So, he gets a £2,500 monster bastard computer (who the hell cares if its a MAC!?).

    He spends about £200 on a crap AMD Thoroughbred setup (no AGP port!? what is this guy on!?), then gives away the excellent parts to his friend.

    I want to go to this guy's house, and laugh. Nothing else, just stand there, and laugh.

    maybe i'm just crazy... but sort of like when i receive a shirt that doesn't quite fit, my first reaction (though i wouldn't mind having a dual G5) would be to just tell my parents that i appreciate their effort, but i'd rather return it to the shop, pick out a computer on my own, and give them back whatever money's leftover (which would prolly be a lot). would that just make too much sense?

    although... if i ever asked my family to buy me an expensive computer of any sort, they woulda told me i'm out of my friggin' mind.
