Ever hear of a Magpie? If not, it's a type of bird that has some really interesting characteristics. They tend to build nests in trees and are known to be attracted to shiny objects. I have even heard of them stealing those objects to use as part of their nests. So, if you hear someone referring to a person as a magpie, they are typically just noticing that they seem to like shiny objects. Take, for example, the effects that a diamond has on people, they see the shine of the sunlight catching the stone and are immediately captivated.

Corsair HX750i Power Supply


Personally, I am not attracted to jewelry or shiny objects in that manner. However, I would call myself a magpie when it comes to computer parts. Attractive components are always welcome in my rigs and I sometimes even like the mods that people do that have really flashy decorations. Clearly, I am not the only one who likes these things, considering that so many people are adding things such as lighting to their cases and are really focused on keeping everything tidy in a system with cable management. Looks may not be the only thing that makes a rig cool, but it certainly doesn’t hurt for it to function well and look good.
