It occurs to me that one of the major reasons I support metalrabbit getting a car is because now I feel much less silly about seriously contemplating spending about a grand in komplett.ie on a buying clear acrylic case and filling it with components that glow in the dark or emit UV rays, are entirely water cooled and has the overall look of an incredibly badly organized rave.

But such things do look jolly nice.

They really do too. The only thing really stopping me from putting together a shopping list for the next couple of months is that I only have a moderate knowledge of the construction of a PC. I wouldn't be too clued up on how much I could expect to get out of a 400/500 watt PSU for example - cable names are still a bit of a mystery to me too.

My mate builds PC's in his spare time (he has 8 at home!) and his glows and looks lovely.

He's setting up a website to sell gamer ready high end PC's, which will make him a fortune.

Especially if he can do custom mod jobs, those things are worth a fortune if you can do them nice. Of course, it costs a fortune in tools to discover whether or not you have the ability :)

Not until you mentioned it. I figure I might as well go the whole hog and string some zombie models onto a servo.

You know, I wonder if they sell action figures for the Hunter characters. I wouldn't be surprised.
