Weird and Wonderful PCs and Mods

Send Us Your Stories

It's time for a little fun. Tell Tom's Hardware's editors about the oddest, coolest, most bizarre, most eccentric or most outlandish PC or PC mod you've ever seen. Maybe your choice sits in your workroom, garage, office or storage locker. Perhaps it belongs to someone else. Possibly it has gone on to that great computer graveyard in the sky. Did you or someone else build it? It doesn't matter. Tell us about it.

Send us a photo or two if you can, but don't send photos that someone else holds the copyright on unless you have their written permission. You don't have to write much; just enough so others can appreciate the unique characteristics of the PC or mod. Check out the examples below for inspiration.

I'll select some of your stories and combine them into an article that will be published on Friday February 23rd. Let us know if we can include your name if we select your story for publication.

Please send your responses to me via email by clicking on my name at the top of any page of this story. Stories must arrive before midnight Eastern Standard Time next Tuesday February 20th. Stories that arrive later will be considered for future publication.

By then, of course, the components were far from being the top performers.
