    Grrr....
    No local LAN parties!

    Closest one would probably be Vegas, ~600 miles away! In a straight line, that is!
    And the cost of flight, packaging, hotel, entry, I'd be spending more than I'd be saving!


    I feel like I'm in a Catch-22; I can't get parts due to lack of funding. In order to get parts, I need sponsorship. But I need to spend serious cash to get the parts.

    If you have a decent mock-up and a portfolio of techniques, you could still get sponsored without having the major investment into parts.

    EG: SGTM is what I call a master at his craft, but he doesn't need computer cases to show it off.

    If you're good at fabricating things, have at it!

    Also, you can start on developing the case before you get the parts. Most websites have product dimensions listed in their tech. specs. Granted this way does take a little more planning than otherwise.

    My advice, if you have no solid modding worklogs or previous sponsorships, is to sketch out the idea and create what you can while you don't have parts. Once you're worklog starts filling out and looks promising, sponsors will be more likely to give you the things to make the build work.

    Hope!



    I think I have a (semi) decent worklog.

    OK, this motherboard has my interest. Mainly because it's Gigabyte, it seems to have the same chipset, and it has 2 PCI, 2 PCIEx16, and a x1.

    Not bad, and looks decent from a glance at the reviews
