  1. Very nice! Dielectric grease would help combat the condensation. You can normally find it at your local hardware store.
  2. Agreed, you can get a refurb 3550 for pretty cheap and just throw the enhanced IOS on it.
  3. Yea I use Mikrotik a lot for smaller environments that just can't justify the cost of a Cisco or Juniper router but still want that level of functionality. We actually use them internally for our WISP core network. The only downside to them is their support is terrible but they are so much cheaper you can buy two or three and use failover and a pre-configured hot spare lol. If you get a layer 3 switch then there really wouldn't be a need for a router unless you need to terminate a non-ethernet WAN connection.
  4. I know I am going a little off topic here but if you want an inexpensive router with all the big boy features (dynamic routing protocols, SLA, VRRP, etc) then take a look at Mikrotik.
  5. Does it just give a generic "Page Unavailable" or something more specific when you try to access the site?
  6. Not a chance in an icy cold hell lol.
  7. I use DMZ all the time, however it normally is in different scenarios than this one lol. I agree with you on this and at the same time I disagree. When working with enterprise level equipment I almost never use DMZ because usually in that environment there will be a dedicated edge firewall. On the other hand when working with SOHO/SMB equipment I use DMZ quite often. Regardless I agree with what everyone else has said you should only need port forwarding/DMZ/Whatever if you are hosting not when you are playing on a server hosted by someone else. Now I have seen where some applications require bi-directional openings in the firewall, however I doubt that would be the case with a game playing scenario.

    Order has been placed. Now I just have to wait for the man in brown lol.
  11. It is because this type of issue is typically handled by Layer 3 devices. One of the cheapest ways to handle network limiting is with a spare PC running Linux router software or even a full Mikrotik router can be had for less than $100. Never mind I just re-read your original question and realize my response is kind of pointless to your situation.

    I get what you all are saying but I didn't post this to find ways to trim the budget. Like I said before mainly just making sure I didn't overlook any compatibility issues.

    I actually meant to take the windows off of there. I get my M$ software through work.

    Just liked the look of the Raidmax. Not a huge fan of Corsair cases. From what I understand the 670 is a better card. Which HD7950 are you referring to as I didn't see any listed with a custom cooler. As for cooling I haven't really decided yet. Since this is going to be for daily use there won't be any phase or dice cooling on this one.

    I am not really one to be big on worrying about saving money. This rig will be a daily use rig so none to maybe a little gaming which is the only reason the 670 is on there in case I get an itch I want to scratch so to speak. Mostly will be doing 2-6 virtual machines at any given time, network emulation software, etc. I mainly am just looking to see if anyone see's any compatibility issues, etc I might have overlooked.

    Threw this together in my newegg cart. Any opinions or suggestions?
  17. No that was for a custom avatar I believe. A long long time ago it was actually 500.
  18. You must have 300 posts before you can edit your own member title.
  19. All I need is his email address to send the invite. You can PM it to me or email it to me.
  20. I agree! I would prefer to have all OCC members but if we need an extra to make even teams I am ok with it. I will give OCC members until tomorrow evening.
  21. Ok guys Sunday is the deadline and we are still only at 9 players. We have to have an even number of teams or the draft can't happen.
  22. I actually had someone in my personal league last year draft Peyton Manning with the #2 pick lol.
