Hello Tom's Hardware,
Today I have a very unique build.
After all the time I've spent in cs_office, I noticed something. The "Beefy Computer"s that are present are an imitation of the Dell Dimension series. I guess previously owning a Dell Dimension made that obvious to me.
Anyways I decided to make a build of the classic "Beefy Computer" from CS:S.



I was able to deduce the majority of the parts using my great eye sight and Google reverse image search on parts of the texture sheet.



I organized all the photos in the album to that the ingame model is on the left and the real life image is in the middle or on right, along with the texture on the far side if applicable.

Here are the parts I have so far.

Along with my homework.

Now what I need is the community to help spot check me on parts.
I also could not identify the parts here.

I need help mainly identifying what CPU I can put in the Mobo. The RAM I need. I also believe the CPU Cooler is a Cooler Master Stock Intel Cooler, but I'm not sure.
But most importantly all these part are pre Nov 1, 2004. So most importantly need the closest Dell Dimension model to that date. I believe the 8400 is appropriate? I also need help getting my hands on the PSU that I could not fully identify. It is an Axio Technologies Aluminum Series PSU?

Anyways, I would be very appreciative if the community could help me make this build possible.
Once I get all the parts, I will build / benchmark / showcase the build, then I will send this off to a very awesome YouTuber.
There will be a Kickstarter soon funding the parts for this + shipping. I also accept donations of parts if they are in functioning condition. I live in the US.

Thanks in concurrence!

-Tom

Good to know the hardware is more powerful than I thought. I thought I would be running CS 1.6. I do want to stay true to the textures on this build, so no matter how nonsensical it is I want to try to mimic that aesthetic.
