All of the pre-mod crap aside, if I had the money and was looking to build a lan room it would be Voodoo all the way!

But not in that gold outfit!

Well I guess that explains the pricetag that I couldn't explain in the other post. BTW, the link is broken from the article.

Still, I don't see it costing more than two grand tops to gold-plate the thing. Yay for moneywasting. It's kind of them to have not even attached the front USB/FW connections, as well.

Stupidest idea ever. Gold, when you get down to it, is a tacky substance when spent on every day commodities that should be understated. Large chunks of Gold slathered onto every day items only serves to cheapen them.

Tacky as hell... I personally hate bling. Now if it had been a Zalman heatsink-case it might have been justifiable as well as cool, but for that it just looks silly.

It look to me like the buttons are not plated with gold. For that much i would perfer the dell system over this.

Is it just me or would gold actually make a better heat conductor (than steel\alum\plexi) as well? Maybe its not all about the bling.......screw that, who am I kidding? Think, for the less than that you could probably pay a real enthusiast to do you a custom job to fit in a stuffed badger...at least you'd have something unique. Gold in my opinion is just another colour, metallic yellow, in fact. No one goes mad over red/blue chrome? Well, maybe a bit.

to be honest i dont like the look of it. gold looks tacky to me and i would much preffer brushed alu or black alu. looks more stylish

that looks like its just been made by sum1 with no sense of style/aesthetics and far too much money
