Oh, I figured that.  Didn't mean it as a criticism of you.

I have tons of stuff that isn't quite what I need, but does the job

For that matter, Suns need some literal hacking (as in with a hacksaw)
for certain kinds of work.

My frankenmachine is not perfect, but certainly not of shoddy build.

Everything fits perfectly, layout is good, and the case is decent.

It is all pretty low end, but I took 6 months to actually buy it, making
sure I got parts that all worked together and were on the market for at
least a year so I could get more information about them.

Even if I had the money, I'd probably still build myself.

In fact, if I had a lot of money and bought an Apple, first thing I
would do is toss their low end video and hard drives and get something
