My thoughts are: I don't have a 2nd rig worth gaming on (macbook pro, eee netbook, macpro)and why build a 2nd rig for ~$3000 that won't play games at the settings I'm used to? It's not really a problem to move at all since I just toss it in my truck bed (which is carpeted and covered), put it on a dolly (like I would any other rig since I'm not gonna carry it in case I trip), and hook it up. The fact that it's huge and heavy is actually a blessing. My rig doesn't move 1 inch the whole ride in the back. Other smaller computers get tossed around. I like to be able to play any game that there are tournaments for, no matter how demanding they are, on max. What I encountered at the last one was people who brought rigs that couldn't even play the games there were tournaments for because they couldn't hold playable fps.
Next year I will have a 2nd rig to bring around to lans, this one, but I'll toss it in a H2GO since I'll be doing an Ivy bridge and 4 way kepler build in this case. Not sure which one I would bring tho, probably the smaller one which will still be sizeable. To each his own tho with form factor.
