Falcon Northwest Mach V

Starts at $3,272

While its insides are always impressive -- you can choose from the latest microprocessors from both Intel and Advanced Micro Devices and graphics cards from NVIDIA and ATI -- Falcon Northwest is best known for its hand-painted PC cases.

From the color that matches your car to your favorite Impressionist painting, Falcon will paint almost anything you want on the outer casing. Starting price on the machine is about $3,272, and custom painting usually adds another $150 to $450 depending on complexity and the amount of artist time needed. Extremely detailed cases have been known to cost $2,000.
