Steampunk aficionado Jake (Of All Trades) Hildebrandt's modded masterpiece - The Telecalculograph - scored a very commendable third place in MusicRadar's 39 amazing Steampunk computer mods round-up. Hildebrandt's latest creation, however, might just top the lot…

The Damnation PC (dubbed The Telecalculograph MK II) is actually a Falcon NW boasting an "Intel Core i7 965, 12 gigs DDR3 RAM, an X57 chipset motherboard, a Dual Radeon 4870X2 card, and 1 Terabyte of hard drive."

It was built to celebrate the release of Damnation (a Steampunk/Western-inspired shoot-'em-up computer game) but could be yours to own by entering the following competition.

Gaming aside, you could make some serious music with this thing. See the full Flickr set for more pics.
