Its pretty nice.  Works great for what I use it for (right now its a 
Linux test machine; it will eventually be a gaming box).  Sempron 2500+,
Abit NF7 NForce2 motherboard, nVidia GeForce FX5500 graphics, 1G PC2700
Kingston RAM, 80G HD, DVD-ROM, in a blue enamel painted aluminum case.

The world's most garish PC!  I figured if I had to build a PC, might
as well make it look strange.
