"QUANTUM SHOT" #208
Outfit your humble PC for world domination
Extreme computer "case modding" community has some truly talented designers, who are as passionate about their PC cases, as MI6 wizards were about James Bond killer gadgets.

Best Case Scenario certainly rocks.
Here is the "Matrix Regenerator"
(there is something living inside of it...possibly)
They also have very cool Alien case mod
Fusion Mods has a nice thread devoted to this art:
