Razer, the company known for their gaming peripherals, announced at CES today their "Christine" project that is a PCI Express modular design. All components are individually packaged and allows anyone to easily assemble a PC.

Razer calls Project Christine "the world's most modular gaming system." Razer explained in their Christine press release, "It will allow any user to build and customize his or her PC in any configuration without any prior technical knowledge. Further, as new upgrades come to the market, the same PC can be easily and quickly upgraded without additional technical assistance and without the fear of incompatibility or obsolescence."

All components from CPU, GPU, memory, and storage can be swapped on-the-fly using Christine's PCI Express architecture. While Linux support wasn't specifically named, Razer mentioned, "Project Christine is able to run multiple operating systems that the user may require."

Project Christine is cable-less design and each component is self-contained and uses active liquid cooling plus noise cancellation. Other reported features are an open operating system platform, factory overclocked components, quad-SLI capable, SSD + RAID 5 HDD array capable, and an LED touchscreen control display.

Razer's Project Christine is currently just in a concept stage but plenty more details can be learned at RazerZone.com.
