Recent years have done great things for PC gamers. Gaming is becoming more and more mainstream and less looked down upon. From hardcore MMO and FPS games to the casual Candy Crush and Clash of Clans, nearly everyone has played or currently plays a game. Gaming conventions and even tournaments are selling out in minutes. Pax East is this weekend and sold out the Boston Convention Center in less than an hour, this is the largest exhibition center in the Northeast United States. The Dota 2 International three day tournament sold out Key Arena, which has a capacity of ~17,000, in less than an hour, as well. With computer gamers becoming more prominent, changes to parts come as well. Full size cases used to be the shining beacon that you built your whole gaming room around, and are starting to look like relics from the past.
