Quakecon’s headlining event is the Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) LAN party. It’s the largest annual LAN party in North America. This year’s event brought nearly 3,000 machines together to share a two-gigabit connection in the Dallas Hilton Anatole. Besides the good games and good people, the BYOC also brings out the more creative types. There were a few amazing computer case-mods at this year’s show.
