    Someone decided they needed to apply the principles of RAID to an entire gaming system. "Don't let a hardware failure spoil your gaming session - get back up and running with a Redundant Array of Inexpensive (?! hey, it's all relative) Systems."

    Don't do it! Please don't. Check out Scan's policy on restocking EVEN if the issue isn't your fault.

    The ONLY things stopping me from pulling the trigger on that case are the hideous bits of glass... and my trepidation and heartbreaking disapointment hanging over from experiencing the utterly flimsy pile of primary school workshop cack that was the 900D.

    I would love this case to replace my 750D Airflow Edition, but not at that price.

    Couldn't justify paying £14k for any computer.
    I still use my bluray drive, so a drive bay in a case is a must for me.

    Why two PCs in the same case? Easy ... you save a quid by only needing one power cable. :-)

    £14,000? For that money I'd want it bigger on the inside than on the outside.

    There might be circumstances where the space saving could be useful - video broadcasting for example - one machine to do the video switching (using something like Vmix) and the other for admin, title generation and other production tasks.

    I'm not sure if a case that big could ever count as "space saving"
