We’ve shown you the ridiculously expensive gaming setups from all over the net, now it’s time to see how crazy people can get with their beloved PC builds.
When scouring the web for each different build, I was looking for originality, creativity and just sheer bravado and I’ve came across some amazing designs.
Here’s what we’ve found –
This homemade build from an old NES system would look great in the living room.
Created by modder James Regan, he’s managed to maintain full use out of the old ports, turning what was the consoles controller ports into USB slot. It runs on a ASRock A330GC Mini Itx Motherboard for which he said managed to fit perfectly in the Old NES case once it was all cut out. It contains a Dual Core Intel Atom 330 Processor 1.60 Ghz and runs pretty smooth.
The force is strong with this TIE Fighter replica, it’s brilliantly made. and looks like a must have for a good Battlefront session. The PC itself is built right into the cockpit! I hope it makes that glorious TIE Fighter noise as it powers up.

The proud owner, Redditor GoodAtIt estimates the total cost for the build at around $4,000 — $2,500 for hardware and $1,500 for the watercooling and parts.
