Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This is glorious, but is it safe?

Alright, TL;DR if you don't want to read; Old hardware got old, bought a new machine, case was too small, got tired of it and just jerry-rigged it together.
Long story is, I originally had an Alienware Aurora. Thing was fantastic, still is, but the CPU was getting dated. My mom decided to buy me a new computer instead of going out to get a CPU, which would have been the smart thing to do. Anyways, we get an HP with a much better CPU and all-around hardware, but with a really shitty graphics card. The old machine had a GeForce 8800GTX, so I decided to just stick it in there.
But that's where the problems begin. The GeForce requires a relatively beefy power supply - the issue with that is the case on the HP is really, really cramped. As in, you can't get anything over the stock 300w power supply inside the case without using a hacksaw. So we buy a new PSU, which they told us would fit. But then it only had one 6-pin connector, and the 8800 needed two. Also, it didn't fit. So I decided, well, fuck it, if we're going to have to mount it outside, I'm going to grab the PSU I know is adequate - the one from my Alienware.
