  1. My condolences to you and yours, Snake. We`ll all be here for you when you return home.
  2. Hey Grimno, long time no see! Great choice of webcam, by the way (for a nice price too, despite the technical setback! Mine was a little more expensive ) As per your question, in order to zoom in your camera, open the Logitech Webcam Software and select preferences (which will open up a panel) select "Advanced Settings" at the bottom which will then open up another menu. Select the "Webcam Control" tab and you will see a slider with which you'll be able to adjust your zoom. Oh and as for your initial question: I can teach you, in exchange for a couple of good jokes of course! Send me a PM and I'll sort you out! Hope this helps
  3. Phantom 820 right here!
  4. In addition to airflow and budget considerations, you want to make sure your case can house all of your components. Other things that may influence your choice could be features (USB port amount/locations), accessibility (grommets/cable management) and aesthetics!
  5. Yes, the game is currently in Alpha and the studio has warned players to expect bugs and saved game corruptions if they decide to get in on it now (and that it's still a lot of fun)! I've backed this game since the Kickstarter as well and can't wait to jump in once it's polished and shiny!
  6. Well the first step is to determine what kind of computer do you want? What do you plan to do with it? If your looking for a work station, what kind of work do you do? If you want to game with it, what games are you interesting in playing? Is it both? That's really the first step. Also, is your budget 500$, 700$ or are you willing spend 1000$. Having a idea of what you'd like to do with it and knowing what your target budget is the first step!
  7. This thread has run it's course. Locked.
  8. Hey everyone! Our first charity drive was successfully concluded yesterday (Sunday) @ 5pm. We ran a 25 hour gaming marathon with the aim of raising 3000$ for the "SickKids Foundation" via ChildsPlay and managed to hit almost half of our objective! The weeks (and days/hours) leading up to the event were tremendously hectic/busy and despite a few technical setbacks (and a tight 3 day promotional window) we achieved our desired end state: That of a successful charity event that helped generate funds for kids and positively contribute to the gaming community as a whole. Over the course of the event (for those who might've missed it) we played a variety of games such as Chivalry: Medieval Warfare 'Deadliest Warrior', Payday2, Smite, Castle Crashers, Team Fortress2, BF4, etc. We gave out prizes to people who donated and viewers who participated in our Twitch channel chat (more details can be found on our Facebook). Here are some comments donors added along with their ChildsPlay contributions: "So glad this is going to the one in Toronto. My sister is going in there for surgery later in the month, it's really a fantastic cause. I have had other sisters who have been taken care of by Sickkids and they did a phenomenal job." "I love this project and wish you all the success. This charity and others of the sort all over the world really help making every day more fun for the children, put a smile on the parents faces and make work more enjoyable for the ones taking care of them, I have seen it myself as a medical student [...]" It was incredibly motivating to us to see this type of response from people over the course of the event is all the incentive we need to continue doing these events. The overwhelming show of support from within the gaming community (and on such short notice) was more than we could've ever hoped and was of tremendous help. On a "personal" note, we'd like to thank all the people (and friends/family) from within the AJSA community who helped us promote the event, who donated, moderated, and who viewed/participated over the 25 hours. It couldn't have been done without your help! All this being said, we have at least two more events planned for ChildsPlay that will aim for a US hospital/foundation and a EU one along with plans for many more events/charity drives for a wide range of causes over the course of the next weeks, months and years! Thanks again! -TGAT
  9. Thanks Leg.. here's another link! http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/11864-the-game-a-thoners/ Which was the original to the link Leg posted!
  10. Hey Leo! This pinned post is a great place to start! http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/topic/11427-read-me-first-forum-rules-and-pc-resources/ I'd also suggest looking into this one also! http://www.youtube.com/user/LinusTechTips In terms of "how two build" Check these other out!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84NvDMMrCNU (on the extreme end, but there're several other "scaled down" tutorials there also!) and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWkH_8b1Q9Y With all theses resources and a little research time you should get a better understanding of how components work/what they do and put yourself in a better position to start selecting components for your desired build!
