So that's 130W less, which still leaves around 90%+ of your power draw

in short. you get one space. that is half a table. it is that simple.

If we started giving full tables to ppl everyone would want full tables and there just isent space for it.

You are working off of full load figures. With the overclocks in my Sig, my PC can draw upto 1700W, Yes 1700W out of my 1500W PSU, excluding Monitors, etc. when benchmarking.
My average use is under 1KW in normal gaming. Crysis being the only exception...

Well aware they're full load figures, fair assumption that you'll be towards the top of that scale if you're gaming all weekend. And that's still 3-4x the amount of electricity that everybody else is using and a significant chunk of your ticket cost (Traditionally used for things like paying for the hall)

As mike said, we have half a table. You aren't special, and we don't see any reason why you should get more space just because you've spent far too much money on a computer.

Well if you think I spent to much money on my PC, you should see my Fully loaded Audi A5...See, now that is bragging. I'm not trying to brag, just want to share my experience with others, which whom may never get to see a fully spec'd gaming PC, and also have a play on it, for the intensive gaming thrill it gives. :wink:

Who was it that brought that mini motorbike a few lans ago? or did I remember that wrong.

If I'm at a lan, I'm there to play games. If I want to be preached at how good gaming hardware is, I'll go to nvidia's website.

Your taking it all wrong. I'm not here to start the fanboy crap of ATI(AMD) and Nvidia. More for the fact of triple monitor gaming.

Freelance, how old are you? cause you are showing some real immaturity. :|

I'm going to close this thread now, as you have your answer regarding the monitors (Note that a 22" and a 17" isn't uncommon, but it requires you speak to the person sat next to you)

The lan is not all about kit, and i can assure you the majority won't give a flying fuck how fast you've overclocked your system or how many screens you can fit on. If you're not trying to blag, I'm not entirely sure what more you'd do if you were trying to blag, but frankly you aren't making yourself friends here.

As for seeing a fully spec'd gaming PC, I think I speak for everybody when I say we're fine thanks. We'll survive. Somehow...

end of the day.
i dont give crap why you want to come to a LAN, all i care about is that you do. if you want to come to game, show of your rig, sleep or sit alone.

you have an answer to your question. you get one space half a table. this is not enough for 3 monitor. is enough for 2 if you are very lucky and have your rig on the floor and the second monitor at a strange angle.

i am locking this now as i cant be bothered to keep reading all the crap that will keep getting posted in here

I'm utterly disappointed that I missed this thread today but I've been off doing real work. Luckily as an administrator I am able to reply to threads when they're locked and feel it necessary to add my modest comments;

You are making a feeble attempt to show off; your computer is nice, but I'm seeing here with 4 monitors and a serious amount of computing horse power. I spend about 20% of my computing time playing games and the rest of it actually using my machine to its full potential. I only bring a laptop/single screen to a LAN because I feel that is all that is necessary.

I'm trying to keep this post short because MikeTheGreek and Wishy rightfully locked this thread. I need to question how you have the audacity to come onto our forums and start questioning and trolling the staff and punters here when you have never actually attended an event. Most of the people in this thread have been to well over 15-20 events, myself about 40-50, MikeTheGreek and Wishy probably well over 75-100! There is a mass wealth of experience here in our community and we certainly know how to host good events. As geeks and gamers we are very tolerant to people from all walks of life, so there is a place for you here, but look around and appreciate what we are all about first.

Please feel free to contact me on MSN or Steam (contact details: http://xconspirisist.co.uk), I will happily point out how and why you have managed to irritate a lot of people already and I will explain our reactions.
