Having put together two serious, blazing-fast systems I wanted to do something a little different. I also wanted to keep my budget down to a minimum. Building a fish-tank computer seemed perfect!

I think I'm going to give it to my little sister so she can further impress the nerdy boys in her dorm at UC Berkeley.

Eclipse 6 tank - Goodwill Store - $5

Lexan scraps - lying round from previous builds

Cold cathod lighting - ditto

PSU - ditto

Wireless card - purchased for Scorch, but had some kind of horrible driver conflict in the early days of Windows Vista 64-bit (shudder) before 64-bit systems were commonplace and well supported.

Old non-functioning computer - sister-in-law I

Power switch - www.mnpctech again

Mineral oil - veterinary supply store on Ebay - $70.

Aluminum project box - Fry's Electronics

Fasteners - Ace Hardware

Motherboard mounting screws - local computer repair store

Blue gravel, plastic underwater plants, and a bubbler setup - Capitol Aquarium

IDE cable extenders - Nothing worth mentioning.

Finally, I'm going to try Linux (Ubuntu10.10) since I don't want to pay for another Windows license. All in all, I think I paid about $200-250 for everything I didn't already have lying around, with the big expenses being the aquarium supplies and the mineral oil itself.

Do you have a worklog for this? The submersed builds are pretty uncommon

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

Friend's kid: Mommy, what's church?
Mommy: Church is where people go to learn about God.
kid: Who's God? Does he teach karate?
