Putting together a smaller rig to bring this time with some old spare parts I have lying around...do you guys think I could get away with a lowly e7400 with a mild overclock? I have a ton of 775 parts lying around, but that's the best CPU I could find. The actual build would be -

-Intel e7400 3.6GHz or more (45nm, 3MB L2)
-Corsair H80
-Asus P5N72-T Premium
-4-6 GB DDR2 1066
-GTX 460 768MB or bring my GTX 570 instead
-Some older Antec 500w semi-modular PSU
-whatever HDD I can spare
-going to buy the case for it in a few hours, something small and cheap
-no optical

For cases, I'm hoping to grab this before someone else grabs the last one locally -

Or look at these if it's not there -

http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=112&item_id=053887

I'd like to bring my main rig again, but it was a bugger to lug around. I know, don't complain, some of you guys had some behemoth gear, compared to mine tongue.gif But I think it would still be nice to build something a little more manageable to take along this time around. You guys think I should bother? Or will it just not be powerful enough? I'll probably just bring a smaller 1366x768 monitor this time as well, so the low res might get me by.

$10,000 total in prizing, so nobody is leaving with an extra $10,000.

worse comes to worse i strap my rig to the "tower backpack" i bought a while ago and hop a GO transit bus down and pay for a night at a hotel.

if i have to do that, next biggest question is....what size monitor im bringing...my main monitor is a 1680x1050 25 inch tv, secondary is a "20 1600x900 LG LED display

UT you say? Although I'm a 2k4/3 player, you have piqued my interest.

I'll challenge anyone to UT2k4/UT3 1v1... apart from FDGExplosion, I don't think anyone from OCN plays competitively, but we can stack a 2 or 3v1 game for fun.

Which clan? Maybe I'll hop on a server.

Unfortunately if it's one of those servers with carzz and titans, you can count me out. I don't even have a keybind to enter vehicles.
