Whose trashing?
It's only trashing if it doesn't work properly afterwards.

Geez...when id the PC world become so stupid?

Just take off the bezel and spray paint it...it will be fine...and the worst case scenario is that it breaks, and you buy a new one, which you planned to anyway...
lol call me shallow but whats wrong with wanting something looking stealthed!!!

...that's what made me use the word "trash". How your pc looks is pretty unimportant...color matching even less so...

Just figure it out if/when you get it. That's what I often do.

Eh, I doubt it, but I'll probably end up getting a Geforce 9800 and a K10 quad core later anyway. (right now I already break 10,200 in 3dmark06)

My crappy pc has never failed me at anything I wanted to do, so I'm fine

8)

Running Ubuntu pretty much anything I do is instaneous, compared to a windows pc with twice the specs.

****, a p2 500mhz with 256mb of ram will get things done faster on linux than these gaming machines do in Vista...

All I do on my PC is edit video, browse the web, code and play text-based games...so buying a new pc would be stupid

My PC does everything I want it for. ****, if my old pc had supported more than 256mb of ram I'd prolly still have my celeron 500mhz. Ran fine
