One of the things that always impresses me when I attend a LAN Party like GeForce LAN or Quakecon is the huge amount of high quality case mods I always see in the BYOC section. Some of these systems can take hundreds of hours to put together and end up costing many thousands of dollars to create – but for die hard case modders that make them, the time and cost is well worth the satisfaction of creating a one of a kind gaming system.

At about the same time I went to Quakecon this past summer, I started to get involved with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – the world’s top non-profit blood cancer research organization. I soon realized that combining case mods and charity would be a fun way to raise some money for a great cause – and the charitycasemod.com project was born.

Charity Case ModI consulted the help of a top case modder named Richard Surroz and started asking companies in the PC ecosystem if they’d be interested in donating parts for our charity case mod project. The response was astounding. 11 Companies in all donated their parts or services to the project – helping us create a one of a kind NVIDIA themed gaming system that is worth more than $10,000!

The system is complete with a NVIDIA 3D Vision glasses and Samsung monitor bundle, two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295’s in SLI, an Intel Core i7 975 Extreme Edition CPU, 12GB of DDR3 Crucial Ballistix Tracer memory, two 256GB Crucial SSD hard drives, two 1TB Western Digital Caviar hard drives, a custom water cooling kit from Danger Den, and a one of a kind NVIDIA themed paint job from Smooth Creations.
