Build of the week: this giant futuristic rifle is also a PC

Every Monday, Build of the week highlights a unique rig from the web’s most dedicated PC building communities. 

Oh Cap-Ten, my Cap-Ten! What a ridiculous mod you've made. Behold ROG Carbine, a computer that is also a gun, also

I'm not sure where modder Cap-Ten came up with the concept, but I imagine it's inspired by "science fiction," the thing all the kids are into these days. Maybe it was a wholly original thought or an act of divination. Imagine all the objects and shapes and ideas in there world. Imagine them swirling around, gaining speed, faster and faster, until a larger, more perfect object takes shape. A voice whispers, hey, check this shit out and what do you see? It's a gun, from the future. 

A future gun replete with a sleek matte finish, divots and panels and lights and weird gun ribbing to imply how very futuristic it is, and best of all, a rectangular gunhole. That's where the gun comes out (I don't know anything about guns.) 

I do know a few things about computers though, and while the ROG Carbine looks unwieldy and impractical as a tool for warfare against aliens or evil humans or squids that grow gun arms, it's an adept tool for waging war on graphics.

Check out the spec list below.
