Default organized pc wiring/cables

Right now my system's pretty basic, with a ton of room. As I start adding more devices and drives, I want to try to keep my wiring as neat and hidden as possible. Can anyone recommend either a good product, or good method/tutorial for achieving this? ie: Alienware boosts there "alienwire" wiring. Can't be TOO technical, but i couldn't find any good pics to figure it out.

Thanks in advance guys!

Richard

Zip-ties and scotch tape!
Also try to run as many wires as you can on the backside of the case between the case and mobo, so that they are hidden.
