I Have You Now :: Community + Astro Gaming Sponsored Build Reply with quote
I recently built a gaming PC for a young man that lost his Mom to cancer a few months back. His Dad sent him up from San Diego to attend PDXLAN 30 with me, so that he could try to have a little fun. The plan was to barrow a PC from CitizenSkippy, but thanks to Darth Beavis, Pancake, Nitemayr, TonyTheHun and myself, I was able to build him an awesome gaming system with only a handful of parts being purchased.

When ASTRO Gaming heard about my project, they sent an A40 Headset and an Astro Scout Backpack (what an amazing company!). I honestly don't have the words to express my gratitude to the PDXLAN Community and ASTRO Gaming, you are all awesome and wonderful people.

To echo the PDXLAN motto: Have Fun, Frag Hard, Give Back.

Love it, love it, love it!!!! Way to go Dante! and the following Good Guys: Darth Beavis, Pancake, Nitemayr, TonyTheHun - you did a great thing there!

I think the coolest thing is the carbonite backplate. That just ties everything together.

May the Force be with that young man - I know PDX folks are!
