I'm building a new computer tommorow for my High School Graduation Project.
More about the purchasing error later.
Parts that I purchased:
Case with 450 Watt Power Supply in black (forget the brand)
ASRock K7VT4A+ Motherboard
AMD Athlon Xp 2800+ Processor (barton I think) With a 333MHz FSB
512MB VData DDR333 RAM
NEC Floppy in white (Purchasing Error)
80 GB Seagate ST380011a 7200 RPM HDD
Rosewill Combo Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
DVD+-RW Dual Layer DVD Burner with white and black bezels (Using to make
purchasing error cool)
Masscool CPU Fan 60MM
WinXP Home with SP2 oem
Chaintech Video Card
Hummingbird V.92 Modem
Round IDE Cable
About the Purchasing Error: I purchased a white Floppy Drive by mistake. I
will use the White Bezel on the DVD Burner to make both drives stand out
from the rest of the case. After I present the project to the panel I will
also add my white Zip drive, so the color scheme will make perfect sense.
This system was designed to be upgradable for the parameters of the project
I set two years ago. I was able to purchase this system, as well as a 17
inch LCD monitor (16 ms response time) for less than 900 dollars.

You could just spray the two drives' bezels with vinyl dye.
IMO, it would look better than white drives in a black case
so long as you paint sparingly... vinyl dye is much easier
to paint with but it could still run if you get anxious and
