What is the best accessory to put on a Semi-Gaming PC?

Hello,

I just have a pc that I game on and the specs are listed underneath my profile pic.

<------

I know the gpu is old but it is all I really need at the moment for my games. I basically do not want to upgrade hardware but want to put something inside of it that makes it look more like a gaming pc, or gives it a unique look.

I was thinking maybe a glass side panel? However I do not know where I can find one.. Maybe LED lights? Though, I'm not too savvy with that stuff.

I included a pic below

Thanks in advance!

You have a unique look already with that con-jumbled mess of wiring and harness.
In my opinion the first thing need is to straighten that mass/mess of wiring up.
It's called cable management.

Adding lights without a side window really doesn't do much. You can't see the lights.



I have no idea what looking like a gaming PC means.

If you want to look at some builds so you can get a idea how things are done here is a very long thread with lots of pictures.

Forget the looks. Make sure it gives you optimal performance. An SSD may come in handy.

Would suggest gettin yourself a new Case for that system. Can that system breathe in there just fine?

My system can breathe fine and yes I guess I should neaten the wires a bit, I thought it wasn't an issue really.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that thread.

Do they make custom side panels though?

I am not sure if I want a whole new case for it..

If your computer can breathe just fine then don't buy a new case

Yes there are people who modifies cases but you won't worry about the price because most of them make a reasonable price.

What I see is cables/harness blocking air flow and no case fans. Their is probable a case fan in the front somewhere.

To me one starts with basics.
Case air flow and cable management is basic. Then you buy some chrome and make it look fast.

Semi-new build.
I have just finished a clean install of Win 7 Ult X64 on a SSD. The hardware was in another case and I built one with it in a new case for my wife. Hibernation disabled, page file set to max of 1536MB, and User Files on a separate HDD. Fairly small space for Win 7.
