I'm supposed to be trying to buy spare parts for my Ford Focus that have a coolant leak, managed to get replacement thermostat housing, awaiting for silicone coolant hose, looking around for a garage to fix my car, trying to set aside as much money as I can for the repairs, but...

Well, I do have 14 years old computer that will be 15 years old by this Novemeber, still running on Windows 98 (that's 98 not 98SE) and although I can do some graphic design work on it, it's taking a while to do this and that work, including saving the files. i've planned a project to custom build my own next computer, was supposed to do it last year, but got sidetracked, all I got was Windows 7. So although the car is having problems, I just found a tower in the local Maplin shop, had asked if I could open it and look inside, it's good enough for my needs.

It's a Cooler Master HAF XM.

Now that I got the tower and Operating System but no motherboard, no CPU, no RAM, not even a power supply, looks like that was as far as I got. Well the project's on hold for now so I'll now try to keep on the car and hope to get her fixed by end of this month.

this company are just down the road from me, I  had them make me a pc about ten years ago and my dads got it now, and its still going well. They are cheap for parts.

If you get fed up and want a company to build you one instead of faffing, the best place i have found is pc specialist, funnily enough about 15 miles from me :lol:

Thanks for the suggestions but those companies sounds more of a "pick'n'mix" customise computers.

Don't you even get the feeling when you try your best to save up for something you want, be it brand new computer, big screen television, tickets to the FA cup final, or even a holiday overseas, only to find your own car got other plans for your savings?

I really got to get to custom build my next computer and bought the HAF case, but oh no, the car needs parts while my brand new HAF stays empty and stays in the box for a few months.

I have always built my own PC's. I usually get the parts from novatech.co.uk or eBay.
