Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 LAN Party

p1030787

Ah the good ol’ days. All computers were running the Steam client and the choice picks for the day were Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2. Back 5 years ago it made more sense to build your own PC, which I did with much enthusiasm. Oh the times! With less time on hand to tweak stuff, it makes more sense to buy branded desktops as they cost the same, most times cheaper than building your own rig and the specs are pretty wicked. I mean look, back 6 years ago, people would have to spend an arm and a leg for a 7 channel HD audio card. Today, it comes bundled with the motherboard! Choose original!

More detailed specs (and it’s not an HP machine!):

Intel Core 2 Duo E7300
Asus P5KPL-AM
2GB DDR2 800MHz
NVIDIA 9500 GT 512MB
320GB Seagate ST3320613AS

Got it from PC Express for ~P20,000. My display (an HP w2228h) is probably worth ~P13,000 now.
