Modders Spotlight: Gary “NavyChief” Murphy & The Glorious PCMR Crystal 570X

RBG fever on a budget

Gary NavyChief Murphy - The Glorious PCMR Crystal 570XThe one thing that Modders-Inc has always tried to point out is that creating a personalized PC does not have to cost you a lot of money. Each year we try and do a Staff vs Staff case modding event that we show off at QuakeCon. The idea behind this is that we are restricted to to a total budget of $250. Gary “NavyChief” Murphy, know for his showroom quality case mods has created his own “budget minded” PC with his Glorious PCMR Crystal 570X PC. Gary tired to keep the case as stock as possible, except for a small color change (How to paint your PC) which he did over a weekend. The other items were off the shelf products. What Gary was is able to show is that with a little bit of planning and a small budget you can make a great looking case.
