Why does everyone have fancy glowing computers? I don't have a camera, but my setup is pretty, uhh, low tech. I have about half a case with bits of computer parts bolted on to it, and a dual monitor setup - not a fancy one - a chunky old CRT on the left, and a very old LCD on the right with the response time of the united nations (if you drag a window around it blurs everywhere). Pictures if I can find a camera/be bothered.

Because Glowy computers are amazing...

But really because most custom built computer cases that I have seen come with the glowy stuff built in... there are only A few ive seen that have no glowing stuff in them.

Plus you can get LED fans for a couple of quid. That's what I did. The case had blue fans in already, but I wanted green so I bought some green LED fans and switched. I also got a cold cathode for inside, but it ended up not fitting anywhere. Having fancy glowing computers is quite cheap.

Beautiful mental image. The only thing that would complete it is if you drew it in ASCII art! :lol: Please, please!
