Project Christine is an all new way to look at "building" your own computer. It's not uncommon in the gaming computer world to do so.
Most people haven't even given building their own PC a thought, or are intimidated by thoughts of 1500 dollars in computer hardware sparking and shorting out, rendering it a pretty looking doorstop.
Razor has come up with the solution. A totally modular PC design that fits together as easily as Lego blocks do.
Here's what Razor has to say about Project Christine:
"Project Christine is a revolutionary new concept design that allows users to build and customize PCs in any configuration without any prior technical knowledge.
Choose any module on-the-fly in any combination, whether it’s the CPU, memory, graphics card, storage or power supply module, and simply plug it in.
The PCI-Express architecture of Project Christine automatically syncs the components.
As new PC technology evolves, Project Christine can evolve with it. Need more graphics processing power or storage? Easy – a user can slot-in additional graphics modules and add more storage by either swapping-out the existing storage drives or adding more modules.
The modularity of Project Christine makes it perpetually customizable, helping eliminate the need to replace entire systems.
Each sealed module is entirely self-contained and features active liquid cooling and noise cancelation. With this design, Project Christine’s components can be safely overclocked without voiding warranties." -http://www.razerzone.com/christine
These next 2 pictures show how the modules slide in and out, and some of the neat extras the smaller front modules will give you, like a read out on how your system is doing performance wise.

I love this idea. Computers today are thrown away as soon as they are too slow.
Being modular, you wouldn't throw the whole computer away, you would just replace the module that was no longer able to fulfill your needs.
