PC Share at Expo?

As a flyer, I'm not bringing along a gaming capable PC. I'll have a laptop, but it barely runs Outlook.

In the past, I've typically played games on @primesuspect Uber laptop, but that thing recently passed away.

Anyone have a laptop/PC that they'd be willing to let me use? It doesn't need to be a dedicated machine - I'm really only interested in playing the TF2 tourney. If so, I'll love you long time and buy you a beer or something.

    This is where it'd be awesome to have the Steam streaming feature somehow let guests piggyback off your hardware to run a game. We could probably manage to run 3-4 people per real gaming rig that way.

    If someone has a GPU for an HP Elitebook 8740W, it'll be good to go!

    I know a guy. Let's make that happen.

    I also would like a PC for the decathalon and TF2 tourney.

    I'm working on doing some inventorying at the office today, and I may uncover some dusty PC parts that end up cobbled together for this purpose. Send me helping reiki signals.

    Laptop works well for this. Also runs Minecraft... you may need an ice pack for tf2 though.

    What's the bare minimum GPU needed for the Decathalon and TF2 tourney? I think that may be the bottleneck in the stuff I have on hand, I don't like to keep any of that stuff around since it degrades in value so quickly.

    Ebay is your friend... Looks like anywhere from $50-450 depending on which GPU you want in there.

    I couldn't find one on Ebay that wasn't over $1000. Can you send me some links via ICPM or otherwise?

    Mine is available for Minecraft & Decathalon, but not TF2.

    I have a spare 5770 I could bring. It'll do all the usual games no prob.

    Is 75GB a sufficient amount of free disk space for the games in the decathlon?

  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Alexandria, VA

    That'll be fine. We're doing old or small games.
