Computer Paint Job Mod – Recycling A PC For A Nursing Student
My latest PC job, a charitable donation to a student nurse, built on an old Pentium III 733Mhz but with 128M graphics card, 512M ram, a creative soundblaster live and an nlite’ed version of windows 2000 she runs sweet as a nut.
Plays fullscreen DVD’s, websurfing, music, camera’s and editing photo’s. Most people buying PC’s today could do what they want to do with a good five year old machine. This is the madness of our consumer society. Unless you want to play the latest games or are working with graphics/music on a semi professional level there is no point wasting money on a new PC when your old one with a little love and upgrading is good for two more years. This one also got a blue and silver paint-job including the mouse and keyboard (not shown here) as I strongly dislike beige boxes.
