Title: Waiting forever Posted: September 06, 2008 (04:52 AM)
Currently waiting in line to download my Warhammer Online Beta. 705th in line with approximately 280 minutes to go. Hmm... This could be a problem since I have to work in seven hours. Here's hoping for a speedy download.
In other news, I finally built that PC I've been talking about for something like two years. I was toying around on Newegg, grabbing parts for fun, and realized that I pretty much had a full PC right there. After two weeks of returning and reordering parts, staring at motherboard diagrams, and a fistful of crossed fingers, it's up and running.
Anyway, here's a few stats:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6000 (3 Ghz)
4GB RAM (ugh... Fatal1ty's brand)
Radeon 512Mb HD 4850
Antec Nine Hundred case (it's like one giant fan)
Edit: 687 since I started writing. Movin' on up.

Cool, I once built a computer for a friend with the 900 case. It has great cooling but gathers dust pretty quickly since the top is open so you might have to clean it every 3 months or so. Also installation was a pain because he wanted a giant heatsink and there's no way to remove the plastic part in the middle. Overall great case though.
I have a Cooler Master Stacker, GODLY case but it goes for something like $250-$300 on average (sometimes more). I found it one day on newegg for $150 and seized the opportunity. The next day it went up about $100 haha.

Tell me about it. I was queued up two times last night, but my connection cut out both times. I then sat in queue while at work for five hours, only to realize that the download was 9GB - 5GB too large for my flash drive. I ended up paying the $7 to join FilePlanet tonight to skip the queue for an immediate download. I lose a little cash, but I need the game as soon as possible so I can get to work on the review for GameShark.

Warhammer officially comes out when I'm planning to visit you. Are you sure you still want me to come?
I could bring my comp and we could have a sweet two person LAN party.
