My "Trail Rated" PC Build
 
I am a Cyber Security student and work in the IT field. So I can always use a fast computer for gaming and hacking (On my own test setups of course ;) ). But when I do password cracking or gaming having the power of a desktop is very helpful, but not always easy to take with you every where you go... Until now.

I was able to acquire about 5 pelican cases that vary in size. I was trying to decide what to use them all for and then I decided it would be handy to have a PC in one. So I upgraded my main desktop to be ready for the AMD 8-cores. And installed my "old" parts in to the case and I also picked up a cheap screen and mounted it. After a few days and about 3 sheets of plexiglass (Always going to use lexan after this). This is what I came up with...

The current specs are:
AMD x4 3.2GHz (Going to be upgraded to AMD x4 3.4GHz or x6 3.4)
4GB Ram
250GB HDD
ATI 5770 2GB Ram
Bluetooth
Alfa 54G wireless

The cases are fully water proof and air tight. So taking this out to the trails shouldn't be any issue. With my rooted Android I can set up an access point to connect to and browse the web in remote locations.

Ran it on the inverter for about 30mins. Voltage didn't drop a bit and I did run some games at full settings to simulate a full CPU & GPU load.

Nice setup, I don't know why you wouldn't go wireless mouse/keyboard?

That is the next thing to buy for it. I went with wired because I got both of them for $10 instead of the $80 for the stuff I really want for it.

You really need to run an SSD hard drive or put a small suspension on the hdd case. Then it's really shock proof. Awesome idea man!

I'm pretty sure Microsoft had wireless mouse and keyboard combo for $30 somewhere.

The only problem with a normal keyboard and mouse is clearance between the top panel and the screen while closed. I want to store everything for it in the case so it is all in one spot.
