Thought this was the best place to post this, as it will most likely lead to the most qualified answers :)

Long story short; my little brothers confirmation is a couple of weeks away and he is a bit of a computer freak.
So I thought of making him a mini-computer-piggy-bank, with money in offcourse ;)

I was thinking of making it 10-12 cm wide x 20 cm high x 20 cm deep (only the case)

I have some semi-transparent plastic to put on the side and some blue for decorations, some 1 and 2 mm hard wire stuff, LED's and cords.

What I need is some photos of both sides of motherboard, ram, hard disk, graphics card ect, so that I can print out and glue on some cardboard and position it in the case.

So where can I find that :)
Thanks in advance.

For the pictures, you can go to Newegg. They have multiple pictures for each item they sell, so you'll have plenty to choose from ;). Also, I don't know how big of a computer freak your little brother is, but maybe you could buy him one of these! :p

Thanks guys :D

Here is my progress today

Made the front, replaced the red led later because it took all the current from the other led's.

Put some of the case on the frame

Put in the mb and the front, the floppy is actually where you put the money in 8)

The CD, floppy and hd in now, the floppy and hd is actually a little slide for the money to slide down

Now all the electrics are in (and working) just need the bottom glued on and make the side that can be removed to get the money out
