and Smooth Creations are apparently both still in the business of selling PCs, they sure seem to be going about it in a strange way, with each company recently busting out systems that appear to be the result of some disgruntled designers in their ranks. If you can get past its blinding mass of orangeness, Smooth Creations' Diablo PC (above, obviously) does look to be a pretty decent system, with a Core 2 Duo E6700 Processor, 2GB of RAM, two 250GB hard drives in a RAID array, and twin GeForce 8800 GTX graphics cards. Thankfully, they'll also let you pick another color if you don't share their taste, with prices starting
at $5,000. For those not willing to give up quite so much desk space for so much ugliness, Shuttle's got an eyesore of its own for you in the form of a new XPC (check it out after the break). Available in your choice of three "designs," you can load it up with your choice of Core 2 Duo processors, a max 4GB of RAM, and up to 500GB of hard drive space -- no matching peripherals here though, so you may need to bust out the finger paints.Read
