I've been playing inside of computer cases since I added a memory module to an XT in order to get more than 640K of usable RAM in the system. I pieced together a couple of computers from salvaged parts after that, and I did my first complete build about 7 or 8 years ago.
Gaming's secondary with me (for now) so I went for a quiet, low-wattage system with room to grow. This is my "green" gamer.
It easily runs World of Warcraft at 1920x1080 with high settings. Might choke on the newer games though. The box draws 50W at the wall at idle and about 100W at full throttle, so it runs quiet and cool.
