Exclamation Trouble Carrying Desktop Around...

I've been doing a lot of gaming lately and I don't use a laptop to do so. I've looked around the net to see if there is any remedies to carrying my desktop around such as PC Bags and what not and I can't find really anything. Do you know where I can carry my Desktop around easily like a bag or something. Thanks!

Sorry, I don't really have a solution for you. That is just unavoidable with LAN parties.

But, if you are like me you have cables out the ying-yang so you could take all the required cables duplicates and keep them in a bag(Power, CAT6, DVI). You get could a wireless keyboard & mouse.

That would make it really easy. When you are ready to go throw your wireless K&M in the cable bag, unhook your monitor and tower, throw it in the car and go. Oh....and don't forget the headphones.

How bout a regular suitcase. You can get one thats big enough and has good support and you could get wheels on it.
