Battlestation Computer Rigs

There was a time when the boring beige box that was your computer system was consigned to beside (or under) the desk in a spare room, but if you have a tricked out system then why not - as the Max Bialystock character says in The Producers - "Flaunt it, baby - flaunt it!" 

These examples are just that, multi-display extravaganzas from folk who either really loved their computers, or just really love showing them off. I guess we are calling these "Battlestation" rigs now...

Oddly, the one I like is the naked computer components mounted on a board on the wall, complete with light pipes marking out the individual hard drives, system board, etc. Not something I would ever do (my wife would be too tempted to turn the vacuum cleaner on it), but it surely makes a statement.
