Depending on budget and imagination, some PC builders will go to great lengths in putting together their rigs. Some take for granted the nuances of cabling, picking their preferred components and overall assembly. In the last decade, RGB has come, and (for better or worse) taken visual aesthetics to the forefront for many. There are builders that go even further beyond this, to the realm of case modding and thus completely customizing nearly every aspect of their rigs. In recent years, we have even seen major console manufacturers join the fray with limited-edition, game-themed consoles.
Back on April 7th, CD PROJEKT RED started a contest called #CyberUpYourPC, challenging builders to create their own Cyberpunk 2077-themed PC. On May 29th, it announced that the final five entries have been selected out of over 1500 submissions. Entries spanned from detailed conceptual artist depictions to those that seemed like actual builds. CD PROJEKT RED is now turning to professional case modders to make these final entries real.
The main prize will be a fully built PC provided by our partner, Alienware including a graphics card provided by our partner NVIDIA. Together with Alienware mouse, keyboard and monitor and SteelSeries wireless headset.
All winners will be chosen by our jury based on the design’s feasibility, creativity, and faithfulness to the Cyberpunk 2077 style.
The contest concluded on May 17th, and the winner will be announced on July 17th. Here are some pictures from their official twitter pages, but there are many more to be seen. Regardless of who wins, everyone can enjoy the massive amount of creativity and imagination used in these endeavors.
