Default Look at this PC...

I went to this QuakeConn convention over the weekend. I thought it was a gaming convention that would have new games coming out and such. I was really clueless about it. I just heard about it over the radio and decided to check it out since it was local. Turns out it's a big azz geek fest aka huge LAN party. Any way I walked around and ppl actually brought their own computers. Check out this dudes computer. He said it's OC to 5.0. Have no idea if it actually was or not but looks like it could be! haha

What did you think a LAN party usually entailed? Most people do bring their own PC's...

LOL at having the phase inside his case....kinda defeats the purpose a bit. The coils have to dissipate the heat somewhere...

You may have missed the part where i said I was clueless.

However there was a section where there was nothing but computers from the people that put the event together. So not everyone brought a computer.

I didn't know it was a LAN party. I thought it might be a mini E3 basically. Big let down. Think we spent about 10 minutes there. Saw a lot of home made computer cases. Pretty funny stuff.

Big let down in that I went into it not knowing what was up. I was thinking there would be booths set up for ps3, xbox, good pc games, new games coming out, etc.

hmm I'm not sure honestly. If you had a pic it would refresh my memory. Sounds like I shouldn't have missed it!
