The LAN - Continued
As mentioned in the introduction, a 40" LCD monitor was on display from Pioneer Computers. The monitor was connected to an XPC which played host to the hot seat Nascar 2004 racing competition. The monitor is fantastic to use but at a price of around $4,000 AUD, it might make you think twice.
In the shots above we see the Shuttle XPC competition area which was located in the centre of the LAN. The sponsors all chipped in to put together a total of ten SN45G nVidia nForce2 XPC systems with SmartVGA 9800 XT cards from SATO which gamers could freely use throughout the day. The systems were also used for the various competitions held throughout the day such as Q3A Rocket Arena and Warcraft 3.
People with red hair were even allowed to play games on the XPC systems!
GEIL came on as a last minute sponsor of the LAN only days ago. As far as I know they had no real presence at the LAN besides this small display unit showing off some of their RAM products.
