      I quite liked it, but I found the other people scary.

      That's because people are scary Vom... I have to deal with them all the time... I wish I could take my swords to work to protect me!

  3. RequirementsExcellent sense of 3D game space and gameflow.Experience with designing, building, and populating game levels.Experience scripting or programming complex interactivity.Excellent communication and documentation skills.Experience with modular kits a plus.Creative writing a plus.Experience with The Elder Scrolls Construction Set or GECK a plus.Experience playing previous Bethesda Games Studios games.Game industry experience a plus.Stuff that us modders already do. If I could somehow make the daily commute from Manly Beach, New South Wales to Rockville, Maryland manageable, this would be an interesting opportunity indeed.
  4. Anything to do with the Ayleids is relevant to my interests.
  5. Here's another one that will get Whovians' hearts pumping - presenting the 'Doctor Who: 50 Years' trailer.

      Welcome back!

  9. OEM thermal paste vs Arctic Silver 5 = 10 degrees difference

    1. donnato


      I didn`t even question when Arctic was advised to me.

  10. If the goal is to get Red up and running in any way possible, I can add another option to the table. I have the following graphics cards: Winfast GeForce PX6200 TD 128 MB - Like new. I still have the box and manuals (pity they're in Chinese). This was a temporary card when my main one was in for warranty repair.Winfast GeForce PX6600 TD 128 MB - Well used. No box or manuals.Both of these cards are severely lacking in horsepower. BUT they use very little wattage which means that Arion's 300W PSU could become feasable after all. In case it's needed, I also have a no-name 350W PSU which may or may not be better than Arion's one. Given the hard life that it had, I'd bet worse though. I'm happy to post any of these to the US. Let me know if you want photos or anything.
  11. I completely disassembled the whole box, cleaned everything, reassembled it carefully and... it booted up! I guess it hadn't fried itself after all. Anyway, what I learned from this excercise is... don't attempt to recycle the good bits from your old computer unless it's a really new old computer. Off to the other thread to offer some help for Red.
  12. Well, I'm going to try a full stripdown and rebuild of the computer just to rule out that I plugged in something wrong. If no miracles happen, I'm happy to send over any of the parts listed above if it will help get Red up and running. I checked the postage prices and they should be reasonable provided I'm not sending the entire case.
  13. Happy Birthday!

  14. @ _echo - THanks for putting it into perspective. I guess a high-end 2006 GPU is kinda ideal for Oblivion. Two items that I forgot to add to the list: 2 sticks of 2GB DDR2 RAM 2 sticks of 1GB DDR2 RAM This strengthens the case for going with a 775 CPU / Mobo since going the 1155 route will necessitate buying DDR3 RAM as well. Interestingly, certain i3's and i5's are heavily discounted here due to oversupply resulting in the Core 2 Duos and Quads being more expensive to obtain! I'll see what I can find on the used parts market, but at the moment, it seems that recycling the parts will cost as much as getting a brand new low-end computer (once again due to massive discounting over here). @ Willie - It's a possibility... I might end up discarding the project if it becomes economically unfeasable. If Red can cobble together a computer from everyone's used parts, why not?Caveat: I'm in Hong Kong so shipping might cost more than the parts!
  15. Well, I finally managed to blow up my old computer. However, it left behind the following bits and pieces that can be re-used: GPU: GeForce GTS250 1GBPower: GTR PTX-500M 500WCPU Cooler: Deepcool ALPHA 200 ST (PWM) Socket 775 CPU Cooler (may fit in some 1155 boards)DVD Drive: LiteOn iHAS524 24X DVD/CD WriterMonitor: 24" LCD monitorPeripherals: Plenty of mice and keyboardsWhat would you build out of it? What level of CPU would best match the GTS250's capabilities so that one isn't constantly bottlenecking the other? H77 motherboard to save money or Z77 for future proofing? (Note: I already have another gaming rig so maximum gaming performance isn't mandatory for this one.)
