Yep, still works great, no complaints. Her usage basically comes down to facebook, email and the occasional youtube video.

In hindsight, of course I should have put the cost of the SSD and the old HDD into the build, didn't think of it at the time.

My best find over the years was a dual P-Pro 90Mhz motherboard with I think 16MB of RAM, I ran it as an internet server for my roommates and I back in university.

I kept the CPUs when I scrapped the box. Fond memories.

Yep, it's excruciatingly slow for compute tasks, for example to stress the CPU I ran Prime95, ran for 10 minutes on the first round alone.

This build isn't meant for power computing though, just some office work here and there, and some light web browsing.

I think that's what is in her current machine, e4300 maybe with 2GB RAM. This should be a nice boost.

Ahhh, I forgot to update the build. I intended on getting the Antec, but I changed my mind and picked up the same PS (the corsair) as I have in my own HTPC build.

Sorry for the confusion there.

Everything seems to be working out well. The cramped space hasn't caused any issues yet.
