Hiding Wires

I am in the process of buying a new PC and am going to network it to my old one. Even if I go with a wireless network, I still have a ton of cables and wires. Any tips or tricks on how to organize them all or hide them?

zip ties cut down on the clutter. instead of 10 stray wires going this way and that you have 1 bunch of wires neatly tied together.

Good idea. Am I crazy, or did I see once they had an automated zip tie thing that cut them to a custom lenght?

I did this with my stereo/tv/surround/gamecube/xbox/vcr/dvd player setup. Looked real nice. Then I had to unhook and move something and it was a bitch getting all the zip ties off. Neeless to say I have been too lazy to re-do the whole thing.

Or you can get spiral wire loom. Or regular wire loom. Both can be found at auto stores like autozone. Walmart probably has it too.
