Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Howdy folks, this section of the forum seems to have a funky "left for dead" smell.
Any who, this is where this thread belongs so I will get started.
I was in on the BYOC last year and plan to be next year. (I won the creepiest comment in-game award if anyone remembers ) I had a mid-tower comp and a CRT screen. Thankfully, I drove (from Rockford, Il) and did not have to deal with any airport security. The time has come to upgrade to a completely new box and a new LCD screen.
I am at the stage of buying the case and am having some trouble deciding. I have some ideas but I am just realizing that I may fly in this year. I was wanting to know if anyone here flew with their towers before. I have read about some others experience through searching but none of them seem to be very recent. Think anyone can give me some advice?:
I have already decided not to go water cooling. So there I won't have to worry about being asked "Sir, is this a chemical bomb?" And as far as I can find out I should not have any repercussions by having the computer x-rayed. As for packing, I figured that I would save the box the computer case comes in and pack the thing back in there when I am redy to travel.
Here are some cases I am considering. I am trying to stear clear of the crazy-ass "fast and the furious" cases that seem to be so popular.
This big bastard, Antec P180. I have seen this thing in person and it is huge but I love it.
The Antec 900. This one seems nice. It also seems to have this "el cheapo" vibe to it for some reason.
Just found this one. Lian Li PC-A10. I rather like this one but it is a little pricey.
