Every Monday, Build of the week highlights a unique rig from the web's most dedicated PC building communities.
One question: how the hell did that dragon get in there? Someone lay an egg in that arcade cabinet or was this one of those digital horror cross-dimension situations? Either way, that dragon looks pissed, and when a dragon looks pissed, it also looks very rad.
Arcade Dragon, the aptly named case mod from Random Design, is a build that carries impressive specs, fiery character, and handy built-in functionality—the monitor is right there and that arcade control pad actually works. Eagle-eyed case mod fans may remember this build from our Computex 2016 gallery. The angry dragon was already pretty rad. Pile on some more rad. This pile of rad, it’s too high.
But really, Arcade Dragon is massive. Check some of the photos for reference where Stefan Ulrich, the man behind the man-eater, is standing next to it. The thing is big enough to actually function as an arcade cabinet. Get some custom post-processing effects for those legal ROMs to put that 980 Ti to use and gather the family and friends around for some Street Fighter. Let them win or they’ll leave.
