    Browsing the forums of worklogs, and i´m really impressed on all the work out there..
    I think a 20$ mod can be just as nice as a expensive tp of the line mod. Sad to see that many magazines and sites often thinks the expensive mods are the better..
    Maybe I´m wrong but that what I think..
    So what is the best mod......? The expensive one, or the one whith almost no money but with alot of creativity..

    depends, say if someone spends alot of money on modding supplys but the paint job is crappy and the bondo is wrong and not sanded then thats not gonna look as good as someone who as spent a little money and cuts a window and puts scrap glass or plexi and gives it a paint for like 5$

    I've never heard of mods being determined by the amount of money spent. In my mind the best mods are the ones that have a clear and complete design, are followed through with good construction and at the end of the day look good. Now some of these plans can be relatively cheap or hugely expensive. sadly I've spent more on my mod than I have on the computer that it houses and I'm not even done, although I hardely think the price will be more than an intersting tid bit when its done.

    i think that if some guy made a design, but sent out all his parts to get them fabricated, then simply screwed it together, is not a true modder. Someone who makes a entire case but only spends $50 is a far better modder, because they used scraps, broken thing, bits of junk, etc to make something unique and someting that actually took time and skill to make, not just a credit card.

    I defiantely agree with that, that's why i always feel kinda iffy about sending things out to have other people work on (that's why i don't do that actually). Even if the mod is not as good of quality just because you didn't spend tons of money on it, its truly worth more if you did it yourself.

    i can understand sending your case out to be anodized or powder coated, but thats about it really. or having a window Laser Etched, or a case skin printed. you know, the things that can only really be done by a pro.

    I love the "I did it myself" part of modding. Anyone can pay someone else to realize their dreams for them. Or heck, just buy it already put together, no chance of scratching it then.
