  1. Nerf Shootout! Teams of 3v3 or 4v4.
  2. I bought parts to build a server from them a while back. It's now my steam games/file server/streaming rig. Heading there now, should be there about 1:45 PM.
  3. Yeah, I can pop by free geek on friday.
  4. Fun to watch this video, and to see how occusync really performs. I'll be bringing down my FPV gear to LTX to show you guys aswell.
  5. I saw a Flyzone Beaver in the video. Who owns that?
  6. I know this thread is a bit old, but you can always jump on the seaplane that leaves Seattle and goes to Vancouver via Harbour air. They land right near the convention centre.
  7. Best way to pack a PC for a lan? Partially disassemble it. Remove CPU heatsink, videocard, drives. Heatsink goes in bubble wrap, video card and drives go in static bags, and bubblewrap. Line the inside of the PC with a large static bag and place all components inside on top. Use packing tape to seal up everything. Been to two international lans before this one and I've always done it this way. And the hardware is always intact.
  8. I work construction. So let's see you guys get all buffed up.
  9. If you out-of-towners want, I can show you where you can find some super cheap eats for the days you're here.
  10. If I added in any superfluous information, it may send the thread into an argument; a direction that would be unhelpful to everyone. So I decided to give only bare bones information and let your guys' imagination go to town. And so far, I've seen four very interesting builds. One thing I have to mention though, is everyone is mentioning a Titan RTX, a card that is easily taking up a third of the budget. I'm afraid I have to say that I will not be buying a TITAN card at all because I have no plans for its compute abilities. It's a gaming/video rendering station after all, not a deep learning supercomputer. If it doesn't provide a significant boost to OBS video processing performance (EG: 4K/8k recording while playing at 4k/8k resolutions without lowering quality settings or dropping frames), I can't see myself justifying it's purchase - even with it's machine learning prowess.
  11. I have an original bitfenix prodigy, so a watercooling loop is already planned for. This thread is starting to get into silliness. Remember the objective - gaming and video rendering are to have equal consideration.
  12. Not a dream rig thread. I have 6k set aside for a rig build (that I've been working on for the past couple years), and I'm waiting a few months for the dust from CES to settle. The tax return would just add to that, but 6k is the hard number.
  13. So, after watching about fifteen dozen (sliiiight exaggeration) of his videos where he talks about his forum, I took the plunge and came here. Hi.
