Often described as the “Woodstock of Gaming,” QuakeCon is a four-day, non-stop celebration of games and the people who play them. Free to all and open to the public, QuakeCon 2009 featured North America’s largest Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) LAN party for nearly 3,000 people and we bring you some coverage of what you missed.

We are finishing up most of our CES coverage now that we are back from the show and figured we’d give you a peak at our few few minutes of fun on the $44,500 Simcraft APEX SC830 racing simulator.

While walking the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas we spotted the CoolIT Systems booth and figured that we would stop by and see what they were up to.

Sure enough it was the very first prototype water cooler for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 video card!

With a price tag of $1,800 this Bluetooth handset is not for everyone, but we can always look and dream right?
