Here some pics of the build I had done before I shipped the mainboard to Australia for a donor bios & repair & testing by Microbits
More pics of the system and it's parts when they arrive and a G400 MAX is also coming with it btw as gift of kindness by SWZSSR himself.
The left pic is a shot of the G400 MAX with it's Soltek Golden Orb remake Looks nifty right
The sound card is the right pic, which I will use is my Creative labs AWE64 Gold CT4390, the entire system has a Gold Theme to it:
The good news it's all packed and ready to go, this will be a fun build and great system to play with but also use for Midi music and other retro feels.
And as wallpaper this one of course
