Ok, couldn't figure out how to attach a pic in the middle of a thread, so I am posting it here.
Well it's been almost 15 minutes and there has been no death of my computer . I guess it is going to make it, but we'll check in on it later tonight to see how it is doing.
Be easy on it, it hasn't been cleaned up yet. Here is a pic.

Looking good, but like mentioned by thronka...where are the pci slots!? I guess if you have onboard everything it would be ok but still!
Wrap the wires and get it all cleaned up and it will be looking good. Did you etch the window yourself?

You can look at my spiral wrap job here:

This is a 3 year old Emachine. Thats why it has a 120watt psu....and the lack of pci slots too I guess. Heck, this thing may die still, but it will look good when it goes!
I etched the window with a dremel. I printed the pic onto paper then taped it to the lexan. Then just traced it with the dremel. After that it was just like coloring

I knew it was eMachine, because of the slots and the jumper sticker on the bottom, they all have them!

Well, This was a fairly painless project. The light kit was cheap, good quality, and shipped very fast. I got it from svcompucycle. The only thing about this kit that I would change would be the switch. It is made with a switch on the hot wire. I would've designed the kit with the switch on the ground wire instead. But I'm very happy with the results.
Thanks for tuning in to see if my computer lived or died.

Very nice job on the etching. Let's see some more photos once you get it all painted and the wires cleaned up!

I would just find a cheapo used psu that is about 300 watts from a 2nd hand store. If you feel like it.. just a though.
