Default World most expensive PC cases

PC case made out of diamonds!

If you want one then it will cost you £375,000/$746,492 with 3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 256MB GeForce 7200GS graphics card, 1 terabyte SATA drive, 2GB RAM, Vista Ultimate and a choice of Blu-ray or HD-DVD optical drives.

Or a budget PC case made out of gold will cost a bit less at £280,000/$557,358.
