Introduction:

The explosive growth of the gaming market has created a new opportunities for consumers looking to build or purchase the ultimate dream machine. The definition of an ultimate dream machine consists of high-end computer components balanced with aesthetically pleasing chassis design. There is currently a small segment of system builders which specialize in the construction of high-end gaming rigs. A few well known system builders such as Alienware, Falcon Northwest and Voodoo PC have utilized aluminum based chassis designs from Beantech, Cooler Master, Chieftec, Lian Li and Soldam. Silverstone Technology is a relatively new player in the case manufacturing market and has developed several unique chassis designs that cater to budget, home theatre and high-end PC's.
