This is freaking awesome. (From a 60's dude, that's high praise indeed.)

Single most beautiful PC I've ever seen. I typed all this before I even though to ask what's in it! ":O}

Thank you Slippery, you really brightened my day!

I take it the metal part of the case is a manufactured case, and you have clad it with your own case?

And I like the retro look!

Pretty cool! I would have mounted the fan 45° to the intake, rather than 90° as that would probably allow better overall airflow

Man, your up against some STIFF competition! Still, didn't have any trouble casting a vote your way.

First thing.....all of the other computers use onboard graphics. I am using a fanless nVIDIA 7600 GS PCIe video card with HDMI and HDCP.

You have to remember that this is suppose to be a contest for "entertainment PCs" not general everyday PCs. Computers that go into the livingroom and drive your plasma screen.

Touch sensitive buttons w/ force feedback and multiple colored lights are great but......who's gonna put down their remote, walk across the room and play with them?
Ok, ya got me on the system specs, don't cry, but I didn't even look at them.":O}
( and they let me run a hardware forums!)

I was going purely on design, while you still hold first place in my heart... I wouldn't find the "BICOM HMS1: High-end AV in a PC" to hard to live with.... at lest until I had to get up...":O}
