I currently have a Dell laptop that works great, but I wanted to upgrade to something more powerful and more mobile. How the heck is that possible? Buy 2 computers: 1 desktop and 1 netbook.
Well I don't have too much room for a tower as can be seen here:
So what am I to do? I'll put the computer in the bottom drawer of the desk!
Drawer to be used:
Drawer out, slot where the drawer goes:
Just seeing if stuff will fit in the drawer ok, not the actual parts yet:
In such a closed space some air circulation will have to be added, so in the back of desk I will place these two fans (one intake, one exhaust):
Well, that's it so far since I'm still collecting the parts. The specs for the final PC will be as follows:
CPU - AMD Phenom 9950 BE
Mobo - Asus M3A78 Pro
Memory - 8GB DDR2-800
Gfx - AMD Radeon HD 4650
HDD - Hitachi 500GB
PSU - Antec Earthwatts 500W
Monitor - 2x BenQ FP202W
I should begin cutting holes in stuff this week, time permitting.
