I'm a new modder & also a student as a computer recycling plant but i dont get much money so how about a mod that only uses things found around the average household???

I would give some ideas but if I had any then I would be working on them insted of looking on here!!!

I think that most of my mods fall into this cheap category. Usually you need to get a single leds and resistor and you are ready. Plexi can be obtained from CD-jewels, phonebooths etc. :) Placing a led to a mouse doesn't necessary need even that plexi part. Making a graphics card coolers needed only four rubber pads....

that is considered a simple mod, rather than a cheap mod. if u were to attempt to make the ccfl ur self, then that would make it cheap.

might wanna look into snagging any athlon or p3 parts you run across and see if they work.. that celery in your stats is screaming for an upgrade.

poof free upgrade. not quite mod but it modifys the system so i guess it is.

oh yea... another idea. steal random dead mobos from the plant.. (or buy or whatever it is you do to aquire them.) and build a case outta em. the case in the mod gallery here looks pretty nice and with a bit of time and glue or something you could make a funky lookin veggie. i mean computer

You cold, Whack a lamp or light inside of your case (like a reading one and paint it) umm Put wheels/handles on it. If its at move all the cables that connect 2 mobo (serial parralell etc.) and make front bay thingy.
Thats about it, and An@rchy you are the biggest spammer your like last post on 6 topics, almost as bad as Aaron.
