Hi there, PC gamers.
I'm the proud owner of four modded, overclocked, competition-level computers with HDs packed full of games, and the sad fact is that I can only reserve one PC slot for myself.
As it is, I'm driving my van up from Eugene, so I can take one or all of them with pretty much the same level of inconvenience to myself. So... for those of you flying in from Timbuktu or wherever, who are really jonesin' to do some PC gaming but can't afford to fly your monitor/system in with you, I can loan you a couple of machines.
Here's how it will work:
--I'll arrive at the Meydenbauer Center early Friday Afternoon and park my van in the basement.
--You meet me in the PC gaming room, we go down to my van, pick up your computer, check it in, and you start playing.
--Sunday, at around 2:00 PM, you stop playing and help me carry the thing back down to my van.
The rules are simple:
Don't download or install anything without asking me first.
Don't delete or rename anything.
If you have anger management problems that you take out on your mouse/keyboard, bring your own.
Share: if you're going to be gone a while, let other people have a turn playing. I hope to keep all my systems close together, so there should be someone there to keep an eye on it while you are gone. Last year, I had zero problems with vandalism and theft, which is why I'm making this offer.
Here's the basic specs on the three systems:
Abit NF7-S motherboard
AMD Athlon XP 3200 (oc'd equivalent)
1 Gb of PC3200 RAM
Radeon 9800 Pro 128 Mb video
Standard Keyboard (w/ windows keys removed -- I hate those things)
Installed games are:
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
Unreal Tournament 2004
Alien vs. Predator 2
System Shock 2
Serious Sam: The Second Encounter
Steam: Half-Life/Counterstrike (not sure if source will work, as I only have 1 license. I've got 4 licenses for original Counter-Strike, tho)
If you have a particular game you're crazy about (that is free
, like Allegiance), let me know and I'll try to install it.
I'll post pictures later, but your choices are between the Red one (Vermillion), the Blue one (Cerulean), or the Silver one (Argent). Respond here or email me slacktronix-at-comcast.net
If anyone else wants to share their computers, by all means, post here!
