PlanetQuake and OverDrive PC at QuakeCon!
Ph4t loot and trick-jumps to boot!
  — by Pappy-R

Hardcore hardware!

This is the first of two very sweet announcements for PlanetQuake at QuakeCon 2002! I'm happy and excited to be able to say that PlanetQuake and it's other events (to be announced) will be powered by the fine folks at Overdrive PC. Long time active members of the Q3 community, these guys put their moves where their mouths are when they claim to build "Game Boxes for Gamers, by Gamers". With some very popular Q3 servers of their own and more than an unhealthy fetish for Q3 trick jumping, OPC knows how to push technology the direction the "gamers" love with their hand crafted and carefully tweaked gaming rigs! You can get a quick lesson in just how hardcore OPC is in their recent series of Q3 trick jumping movies and the forums they provide the community. These films are also hosted on my personal page. Combining these things with their expert knowledge and support for the custom gaming machines they build made them a top pick when it came to preparing a list of who we'd team up with for the event. Now why should you care "who's" gaming machine I use at the event? Here's why baby... You could win it!

The Deal

OPC will be building a custom QuakeCon 2002 gaming rig for PlanetQuake to use exclusively at the event. Now, the exciting part is that instead of taking it home, we'll be giving it away to one lucky fragger on the last day of QuakeCon 2002! The cost of the beast will be shared equally between OPC and myself just so we can give it away! Now how about your first taste of the machine's specs?

OPC / PQ Custom Gaming Rig Specifications

  • AMD Athlon XP 2000+ (1.67GHz)
  • MSI 333MHz KT-333 Ultra
  • 256MB's of 333MHz DDR-RAM
  • GeForce4 MX440 64MB (4ns DDR RAM) Video Card
  • Maxtor 60GB ATA133 7200RPM Hard Drive
  • Sound Blaster Audigy Sound Card
  • Sony 24x10x40 CD/RW
  • Netgear FA311 10/100 Network Card
  • 300 Watt Case with 4 Additional Cooling Fans
  • 3.5" Floppy Drive
  • Microsoft Windows-XP Professional Edition
  • Rounded ATA133 & Floppy Cables (replaces the usual cheap ribbon cables)

Extra Features

  • OPC Stainless Steel Mounting Hardware (replaces the usual zinc plated junk)
  • 4 Additional Case Fans for Excessive Cooling (Protective Grills Included)
  • OPC Spiral Wrapped & Velcro Bound Wire and Cabling System
  • OPC Motherboard Shock & Flex Prevention System

  • OPC BIOS Recovery CD
  • OPC Emergency Boot CD
  • OPC 1 Year Standard Parts & Labor Warranty

    (The PC was designed according to a set budget and does not represent OPC's top of the line machine.)

If that's not enough, how about a custom paint job for the event and some games to boot?! "How can I win something this kool" you ask? We've come up with something special in that regard as well. We'll be giving away 1000 "Special Edition" OPC CD-ROM's with all 4 OPC trick jump movies, demos, custom maps and more! This CD will be your ticket to win the PC at the end of the event in a draw, so don't lose it! Even if ya' don't win, that's gonna' be one hell of a disc! (One disc per person and any attempt to cheat will result in a private, "off the record" chat outside behind the generator between the perpetrator and the other 999 entrants.)

This contest is sponsored solely by Overdrive PC and Pappy-R with no responsibility to any other parties for warranty and/or delivery. Big thanks to Overdrive PC for teaming up with us and don't forget to come meet the guys from PQ and OPC where the prize machine will be hot and humping the entire event! Just ask for Pappy-R and b3nt and you'll easily find us getting down n' dirty with all the other gamers in the BYOC area. You might even find b3nt giving me some crash courses in plasma climbing!

Do ya like contests and swag? Want more? Let us know, write a little feedback.
