We only pay electric at our apartment, but we have electric heat, stove, and water heater. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif




So.... I'm thinking I need to start building things. I've been bored with games lately, and need somewhere else to focus my free time. I like the idea behind steampunk, but I hate the look of brass. So I'm thinking I should gravitate toward "dieselpunk". Anyone have any good sites for tips, tricks and ideas? Do's and Don'ts? Steampunk or Dieselpunk sites will do, both will give me the general ideas I need to get started. thumb.gif

I wish I was in your position. We have to pay for water, gas, sewer, trash., electricity, blah blah blah everything.

Gaming is more important to some folks than their cars or where they live. Honestly, I would be like that, but my wife won't let me. She has these weird ideas that the house needs heat in it, and the car needs to run...

I agree with both of you guys.....

Keep the facts straight. It was perhaps in bad taste, but it in no way should have offended anyone. People know this stuff exists, and they know there are tons of us on this forum that will be reading this thread who own the stuff.

If one person with a generally unoffensive comment can get you that upset, you may want to stay away from the internet. As I said, if you had actually read the thread you would have seen that I fully appreciate these setups, in some ways more than my own.

I have read every post in this thread since the day I started it, actually. The post was uncalled for and off topic. /End

I'm not going to argue with you over it, which is obviously what you are here for. Just drop it and move on.

Here, back on topic. This is the first PC I owned that was not purchased used... and only after I had already owned it for several years, pulled it from it's original HP case and put it into this 30 dollar one from Newegg, and gotten my first taste of dual monitors:



In fact, I am STILL using those Logitech speakers, which cost me $50 brand new... retail price no less.

No, in terms of dealing with average you are talking about being able to play games comfortably on medium to high settings with a decent fps. Once you start being able to max out settings you sre beyond average. You cant use how much someone spends since there are contests and gifts. From what I have seen on these forums the "AVERAGE" person is able to play games on the med-high settings with decreased resolution with a couple settings turned down and is achieveing the 30-45 fps range

I live in the basement with my servers. The rig with monitors in total is under $1K, servers could be over $1K, but I won the little one, so that doesn't count right smile.gif?
