Borderlands 2 Maliwan-Themed Bitfenix Prodigy Budget Build

Permalink:   (38 comments)

A friend of mine was in need of a new computer, and is a huge fan of Borderlands. Her birthday was coming up, and to treat herself she was buying a new computer in the ~$500 range. Since it was her birthday, I decided to paint her an awesome computer tower.

Using a Bitfenix Prodigy as the base I designed a Maliwan-inspired custom paint job for her case. It was also my first experience with painting a computer. Now, its about 95% done, the only thing left is to apply the maliwan logo and hexagon pattern to the sides, which are being cut as we speak. I had to ship it to her before I got the chance to apply them, but I will be visiting and hopefully doing so in the near future.

My god, that's a lot of pictures.

venounan [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 15 months ago

Yeah, sadly I can't re-organize them so that I can put them in chronological order, so it's a bit of a mess.

smoralesdesigns [1 Build] 1 point 14 months ago

What kind of paints did you use? And any special kind of brushes?

nada190 [3 Builds] 1 point 13 months ago

venounan [Submitter] [2 Builds] 1 point 9 months ago

Thank you!

dos 1 point 6 months ago

I would honestly pay you to paint a case for me... I'm in love with it.

dos 1 point 6 months ago

but seriously, would you ever consider painting cases for people? XD

dos 1 point 5 months ago

because I would hire you to paint my case...

Reconmidget [1 Build] 1 point 3 months ago

How did you paint it? I'm using the Prodigy White case. My pet recently died and he was white with black spots. I'm dedicating the PC to him as I feel it was my fault for his death. He was an English Spot so it would be white with black spots. How would you paint this?

Sweet build man :)

SuperCookie [4 Builds] 1 point 4 days ago

At first i thought it was a newegg build then i saw the title but it looks great!

lt-smith [2 Builds] 0 points 15 months ago

you could have got a 1gb 7850 for $100 instead of a 560 ti which is 2 generations old

venounan [Submitter] [2 Builds] 4 points 15 months ago

The 560 ti was picked up from an older build second-hand with the intention of upgrading it in the future. I told her now would be a good time to get a 7950 for ~190 to replace it.
