Halo 5: Guardians may be making serious dough on the Xbox One, with $400 million cleared in the first week, but if you're a true Halo fan - you just missed out on this awesome piece of kit.

A Swarovski crystal encrusted Master Chief helmet just sold on eBay for $34,000 with all of the proceeds going towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The helmet in question weighs around 11 pounds, and was designed by Taiwanese cosplayer Hsu Chia-Hao and Australian designer Jenny Manic Mercian.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
