Forced break from PS2, computer trouble.
To keep a long story short; The original gaming computer I built is sitting at my parents house un-used, and the laptop I've been using for the past several months...
...has burnt out.
The one I have here is a lot better at cooling (idling at around 40-50C rather than 80C), but is probably too weak (even weaker than the now-useless laptop) to use for Planetside2.
I may give it a try sometime but, for now, I'm going to have to quit the wishful thinking. Rendering 200+ infantry is a bit much, and yes I've always played with Minimal settings.
I'll still bee around on Mumble most days, Games are a pretty great distraction from gende dysphoria. I'll probably bee Minecrafting on a server me and some friends rent, or talking to/playing with the GM who's running Dungeonworld for RPS in the Pen&Paper forum, which I attend every friday at 7pm.
I'll let you know in this thread if I manage to run any other games in my steam library, or if I get a new computerthing.
...also, this is pretty, pathetic, but, if you ever want to contribute to the cost of a new computer then PM me and we can probably do something with Paypal. Engaging media is a great coping mechanism, and no amount of depressive sleep addiction has stopped me from attending an evening of RPS Planetside2.

Kickstart it, sobee. You know you want to.
Ok you know I want you to. Tomato tomato.Disclaimer:
Sometimes I get a bit manic and then I talk too much and wall-of-text a lot.
This rarely lasts for more than a week or so at a time. Feel free to ignore any and all walls of text at your leisure.

Kickstart a new gaming PC? ... why would I use Kickstarter for that?

Can't you like, take the computer from your parents' house?
Plus laptops for games make me cry inside.

I am in tears, no doubt.
My MacBook Pro has Europa Universalis IV installed for emergencies. That's it. Everything else is desktop. Mobile GPUs suck donkey.

Sophia has a keyboard/mouse and VGA monitor, which will do for now I believe. Unless you have a DVI one kicking about?

I've got some old parts I could part with at 2nd hand rates that could handle PS2. Can't really afford to give them away though. I've got a factory overclocked GTX 460 1GB GPU, Phendom 2 965 BE quad core processor (AMD MB only ofc), some RAM which I think was 4GB DDR2@1600mhz (will check later), 600W colours IT PSU (need to check amperage). No spare MBs though, my last one died.
Edit: 500WPSU with 25 amps on 12v rail (that will handle the GTX 460), 8GB DDR2 @800mhz

Horg, can you check the PSU and connections? Modular, semi-modular?
I had a look through my Cupboard Of Things (it's a mystical land) and found a new in box Asus H81i-Plus motherboard that I'd obviously intended to go in the HTPC before it ended up magically turning in to a PlayStation 4. So yeah, threw that in along with a new ITX case, spare SSD and fans. Oh and Windows 8.
EDIT: Cephas, can you checksie? PCIe I assume?

It's non modular, 2 SATA connectors, 2 6 pin PCIe connectors, 2 system fan connectors, 5 4 pin molex connectors, the MB connectors are a 4 pin, a 6 pin and a 24 pin. Reference number is EN60950 (PFC).
