This makes us wish for gray PCs again

Custom 'Diablo' gaming system allows too many color choices

Smooth Creations

If you're not sure whether an outfit's colors go together, we've always been told, don't take a chance. But, as this PC ensemble proves, the monochromatic look isn't a slam dunk either, unless it's all black.

The "Diablo" custom gaming system from Smooth Creations can be ordered with a matching monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers and iPod, according to Chip Chick, in the hues of your choice. But we do hope that the color pictured here doesn't become too popular, as it appears to have produced the computing incarnation of Goldmember.

No matter how atrocious it may look on the outside, the system will still contain an impressive set of components including an Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Processor, 2GB of memory and a pair of 250GB hard drives, as well as two GeForce 8800 GTX cards. Still, at at a the price of $5,000, we think they should throw in a fashion consultant as well--for everyone's benefit.
