It lives

Check this one out, my son upgraded the CPU,motherboard and power supply in his gaming PC .I was left with an amd a6 apu( that's a CPU and graphics chip in the one unit,who knew) ,a gigabyte f2a55m-hd2 motherboard ,and a 500watt power supply spare .I stuffed them all into a gutted xp era Compaq presario case ( circa 2007)I found in the attic .Added an old 160 gig hard drive and a 4gig ddr3 ram stick.The thing boots up in seconds and is fantastic for watching videos.see pictures below.

Re: It lives

Yes, well done in stitching all the parts together and making something useful out of them. It sounds a bit like a 'Frankenstein' operation. Maybe you could use the reborn computer as a test bed for various Linux operating systems.
