Description

READ THIS** - This build is a combo of 2 computers from 2005-2006 so it has many different parts, so limited specs.

I found a couple hundred bucks so I decided to do the best build I can with what I have.

Laptop in center, sharing monitor on left (dual screen) - 2010 Toshiba satellite a665 4gb ddr3 ram 2.6ghz amd graphics

Desktop in desk using monitor on right combo of 2 computers, one from dell in 2005 and one custom from 2005-2006, so it is a odd build. 1.5gb RAM 2.4 ghz 2 core. NVIDA GeForce 6200SE graphics card, 2 optical drives, 2 200 gb 75000 rpm hard drives

Total costs: 15 dollars for cords, all equipment from around the house

I often get random computer parts to do things like this all the time for family and stuff. It is a fun little hobby!

I've always wanted to go around and find some older systems and mash them together like this. Does the system run well?

the one to laptop, laptop shares screens with monitor on left, the 2 computers combined is on the bottom, uses screen on right and has a wireless keyboard on back of my chair. I is a fun project that I can keep working on as I get more old computers from family, friends, garage sales, and things like that.

You must mean "attached"! Also, did you earn the $200 or did you find it laying around and take it? Nothing wrong with that, but a person does not just "find" $200 laying around, if I found that much it'd be equivalent to a "financial miracle" or "someone that dumb drops that much money and does NOT notice or care! By the way, dual-monitor setups only look best when it's just 2 monitors and a desktop or tower PC-build, it looks awkward with the laptop screen sharing unnecessarily with a Desktop Monitor. I've only hooked up an additional monitor when my laptop display no longer worked, and only in that scenario!

As far as your custom-Dell build is considered, great job!

Hey, question, what/how did you secure the hyper 212 cooler to your motherboard? Have the same board and a Geminii s524 v2 cooler and am running into a problem securing it with the backing plate hitting some of the chips on the back.
