5 people in attendance: nospace, stringy, cpg, ohhimark, and mobyte
On a Thursday, 6:00PM, 2225 Kohrman Hall
- If you’re interested in Defcon 2016, get in contact with flay on IRC.
- Estimated cost would be $1000.
- Our consumer edition Oculus Rift has arrived!
- However, none of our computers at the Computer Club can handle its awesomeness.
- We’re thinking of building a new computer with capable hardware so we can run it.
- Based on a cost estimate by mobyte, it may cost somewhere between $700 and $1000.
- I will post a parts list on IRC and people can give feedback.
- Alternatively, ohhimark is offering to sell us a computer.
- Specs are: Intel i5-4690k overlocked at atbout 4.5GHz, Z79 ASRock Motherboard, lots of fans, 8GB DDR3-2133 RAM, 120GB SSD, 850W 80+Bronze PSU, and GTX 780 GPU.
- We would probably need to swap out the GPU.
- We can compare our final parts list to what ohhimark is offering and see which machine we go with.
Kohrman Swipe Access
- We now have swipe access for the Kohrman building.
- However, only two people are given access: stringy and nospace.
