Luna

Luna is a budget computer that I've been fixing up. The project started when I found the motherboard, CPU, RAM and case at a local second hand store. I added a 1TB hard drive, an inexpensive power supply and a cheap video card. Currently Luna is running Linux Mint 19 Tara. I mostly use it to watch Youtube/Twitch on and browse the web. Since the video card I have installed is woefully under powered gaming is effectively out of the question.

 

Someday I'd like to get a better case, since this one is dated, has poor airflow and no cable management. It's also missing the hard drive cage and has a few other missing/broken components. I'd also like to get an SSD for the operating system and a better video card.
