"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. In some cases (pun intended), the end product has truly radical looks and some wicked innards ready to unleash a gamer's fury upon the world...
Here is an update of what's going on in Ukraine, for example:
DPK modding community 2007 competition entries:

Probably the best case modding company
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:
