    Got this question I thought I'd post:

    I have seen some mods (battlefield 2 etc) that were made for commisions for companies; promotions etc. I wanted to get a feel for a couple of things:

    What sorts of costs do you think such things would be about? I am toying with the idea of commisioning a Modded case to offer as a prize for an event and as the guys here are hell better at it than I would be it's an option to get one made. I was thinking of a bare shell modded case that you give as a prize and then the winner can display it, fill it or whatever, that way the cost would be kept down. Is it feasible to think I could get a case made for say $500?(au so USD would be like $450 or so).

    Is it a good idea? Would such a prize be thought of as good? I am thinking of other things as well like grpx cards and other hardware for lesser prizes but a custom modded case would be sort of worth more than the sum of it's parts if you know what I mean.

    Anyway 2 cents welcome.

    that would be an awsome idea. I would personally want the hardware as the prize but a custom 1 of a kind case is pretty hard to turn down.

    Depends upon the person I guess. Some may find it degrading, others may absolutely love it. Either way, it's a risk.

    Personaly, I wouldn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as hardware, but then again I'm very picky about my cases.

    I think it would be an awesome prize, if the mod was good that is.

    Like many others I'd prefer high-end hardware, but it really depends on the case. I'm also quite picky about what I'd want sitting next to me.

    yeah, I would prefer hardware as a general rule but if the case was a nicely modded Lian-Li I think it would be an awsome prize

    The flip side of that issue is it also depends on what the hardware was. For example, I probably wouldn't enter a contest / drawing / raffle for an Intel based Mobo or an SLI graphics card because I don't have any use for either of those. If you were going to get a case done I would say make it have as broad an appeal as possible (no skulls for example). In making the decision you need to decide what "prize" will have the broader appeal.
