NVIDIA Announce Case Mod Winner

NVIDIAs ION platform has always been one that lends itself perfectly to the many modding possibilities that the mad scientists can come up with. By virtue of it's compact nature, low-power running and easily being powerful enough to be the basis for a high-definition home-theatre system it could fit into a multitude of cases.
 
However, for whatever reason the modding community hasn't embraced it as much as one might initially think they would, and so NVIDIA held a competition to see who could come up with the best design based upon the ION platform.
 
After much deliberation they have announced MNPCTECH as the winners, with their rotating cube. Utilising an eye-catching combination of UV-green acrylic and a pedestal mounting system this really is a deserved winner. It could never be classed as stealthy, but its futuristic looks and great use of the NVIDIA colour scheme ensure it can't be ignored.

Hi Guys,

I'm building one of my little ones a rig for crimbo and am on the lookout for the following at bargin prices:

- DDR2 Kit. Preferably 800mhz+ and 4GB
- PCIe GPU. Not overly fussed on make model.
- SATA HDD. Reasonable size.

Any bits floating lemme know and we'll do business as per T&C :)

Might have a GPU I don't need any longer, what are your requirements, does it need DX10 support, power connectors?

Nah nothing that flash. DX9 would be fine and pref without power connectors, but not essential.
