Myself as well Jr...wonder if he has any games to play on it? I'm sure I have some I could forward.
Good call on that.
Let rickss69 and myself know what kind of games he likes to play. I got quite a few older titles lying about.
haha Glad that all worked out! I'm sure he'll be equally as shocked on how simple it is to assemble your own system, so not only will it be a great gift in the 'now', but the knowledge will be a great on-going gift
I'll be having Paulie's PSU sent out to him today and he said when that arrives the OCZ will be on it's way to you! Since he lives only an hour or so from me, it should get there (I would hope) by tomorrow. If I was at home I'd just drive it over to him :\
Glad to hear this all worked out.
I wish I would have seen the thread before, I would have donated something. Anything else you need?
Oh, and this thread is lacking in the photo department, I think I'm probably not the only one that would like to seen how this rig turned out.
I don't think he has the parts yet (just the monitor)
could use a set of speakers
photos will be posted when all the parts get here and we start building. I forgot my camera saturday. Right now, I have recieved the monitor, CPU, heatsink, motherboard, and case. Still waiting on the RAM(being shipped today from my understanding), hard drive and PSU(being shipped later this week). I already had the 8800gt, OS, DVD drive, and KB/mouse.
I'll talk to him about what games he likes.
OH You should get him Portal! It's free still right now Even if it isn't quite up his ally in terms of the game type he's interested in, it'd at least be a game AND something you can just crank the hell out of the graphics for some nice eye candy
Can't beat free!
his mom did buy him a subscription to gametap, so he has that for games.
Barb. ram sent. PM in a sec.
Great stuff guys! Glad that he had a great birthday! Deserves it!
What a mindblowing climax, I never expected it to get this far. This is the kind of genorosity and happy endings you only see in movies. And on TPU of course!
As soon as he starts putting that PC together, he's going to slowly turn into one of us... A new beginning in life...
This thread should be displayed loud and proud, a TPU user-to-user-donation-history section maybe?
Well done everyone especially BarbaricSoul, that's something amazing you've all done.
So, I do have some speakers I could give for the price of shipping. They are older, but work pretty well.
can I get a link or pic showing the speakers you have?
I'll PM you a photo when I get home.
I had (and am still having) a rough childhood too. I feel really touched by all of this.
Rick told me about this thread. Excellent stuff.
I've got an extra serial key (legit) for Dirt 2 for the kid, he can download from Steam and activate it.
Barbaric, PM me if you're interested.
That reminds me Sky - I have an extra Vantage key as well...may as well get him started early lol.
I'll be intouch when the system is built Sky and Rick
just waiting on the hard drive and PSU now, everything else is here.
bump to the top to show off TPU's AWESOMENESS
Paulie got the PSU from me, or USPS says it's been delivered at least
yeah, I know. We've been talking
I just looked up the tracking on those items and they will be there tomorrow Barbaric
make sure you take some pics of the rig when it is built!
TPU: The Awesome Father You Never Had!
oh, pics will definently be taken and posted of it being built.
