I have an Antec 902 case right now, with 2 dvd drives and a bluray drive. Needless to say, I think the 3 drives is a little unnecessary... So I moved my computer to a different place (home for christmas) and my desk is much smaller, leaving me with no room to place my cup. So I'm seriously considering spending 15 bucks on a cupholder that would take the place of one of the dvd drives: http://www.crazypc.com/products/8177.html

Haha. What are your guys' thoughts on this "upgrade"?

You would have to sacrifice another drive for the ashtray.

Make sure that you install the cup holder in the top bay of the case. If you install the cup holder in one of the lower bays an ejecting DVD drive draw may knock the cup off.

And yet, so very important.

I would add the ashtray if I actually smoked, I was just seriously considering the drink holder. Also, thanks pjmelect, but I think the whole common sense of where to install a drink tray is something I have under control :)

Believe it or not, I really understand. I'm not laughing at the idea, but the comments. They're so funny.

Talk about silly, I placed 4 used bottle caps under my PC desk as a heightener just to give room to place the case under it in a standing position. Again, "used" bottle caps. :lol:  That and a few more "mods" I make on my PC. :p 

A cup holder is quite normal. They use it in cars, why not PCs?

True, they also use mufflers in cars, guess I better get that installation process underway as well

Ok, if the lighter/ashtrays not needed, how about just making the hole in your dvd drive tray big enough for a cup to fit? that way its a cup-holder plus you can still use the drive if needed :p

Good idea, but we wouldn't want this to happen, would we?
