Why are PC components so flashy and crap? If I build a PC, I want it to be well engineered and solid, not lit up like a Christmas tree.

That was cool in 2002 - not any more.

Why can't sellers have a "sort by quality engineering" button? Combine that with a "won't make you look like a twat if you take it on client site" filter, and I would be happy.

@jhol I ended up with a rainbow-cycling graphics card, a side window and blue LEDs on the motherboard (all without asking for them). It acts as a night light I guess
