  1. How so? I tend to go with just one without any real issues. As for my opinions on the deck, I'd get rid of the T-80UK. Swap out either the Malkas or the Msta for a cheaper mortar unit. With the tanks, I'd dump at least the T-80B for a card of T-64Bs. I might get rid of both T-62Ms or one with the T-55AM2s and replace them with another card of T-64Bs and a heavier tank (Upwards of 100 points.) However, I can see the appeal of the 2800m ATGM range for the T-62Ms, so it's up to you. I might drop the Mi-24VP down to just the V for the sake of price in comparison to the Mi-28 (unless you like the cannon and bigger rockets.) The only plane I'm iffy on is the Mig-21bis and its availability, but the choice is up to you. Besides that, I think the rest is fine. Once more, this is based on my general deck style.
  2. So I take it this is where the Wargame discussion is now? Haven't played ALB in a while now. I tried getting into EE over the summer because of the campaign and the timeframe, but it never really caught on with me (interface is bothersome.) RD is where I'm mostly at lately and I'm mostly happy with balance there. If only I could win a match though . As far as the deck style in RD, I guess I've kind of gotten used to it. The only areas that I'd commonly use 6 cards in ALB were infantry and occasionally support. Other than that I'm fine with 5.
  3. I'm still around too, just not so much as of late with school starting back up. With the exception of a few things (and completely ignoring naval,) I feel the state of the game is in a pretty good place.
  4. Bumping this because I have unfortunately encountered a problem. My computer will occasionally freeze/crash randomly on me (three times in the week.) I haven't noticed any particular pattern to the freezing, but the effect is the same each time: screen goes grey, locks up, and doesn't respond to anything, resulting in me just holding the front power button to turn off and restart. The times it has happened while I was gaming, the music in the background still plays fine. Some digging for a possible diagnosis hasn't yielded anything, but I do not think it is heat-related. No anomalies in my Event Log either. It currently is not a major issue, but I would certainly like to fix things before I go off to school.
  5. Well, the wiring is all done, drivers all installed, and he somehow had a copy of Windows 7 and put that and some other programs on too. Everything seems to be working fine. I'd say then that this thread has fulfilled its purpose. Once again, thank you all for your help.
  6. Oddly, the board did not come with a manual, just some quick instruction guide. Referencing an online version did not help. I was able to get the computer to someone today who is much more skilled with computers, and they will finish wiring everything for me. He also said he could hook me up with an adapter that will allow the front panel USB cord to go into one of the ports on the motherboard.
  7. Alright, the case finally arrived last night and I got most of the assembly out of the way. Most of the it wasn't too hard, but the motherboard is being a bit of a problem piece. It didn't really fit in the best, but I believe it is sturdy enough to not worry about. The big issue now is with the wires, specifically the front panel ones. I can't find where all the small ones (LED and related) connect to on the motherboard and the USB 3.0 cable does not have an appropriate spot to go in either. The hope was to go and take it to someone today, but I do not know if either of our schedules will work out. For reference, the board is a MSI H81M-P33. I did find someone to be the middleman in obtaining the OS. However, I will not be in town this next week, and will therefore not be able to attend to the computer setup.
  8. All my parts shipped and they should all be here in the next 24 hours (except for the case which had some shipping anomaly.) However, I have gotten hung up on the process of obtaining a key for the operating system. I would like to use the link Never provided, but I do not have a Reddit account and do not intend to wait 30 days to comment even if I got one. Could someone lend me some help regarding the matter? I intend to get two keys.
  9. Can anyone with an account on Reddit please lend a guy a hand here?

  10. Alright, I will probably start ordering parts tomorrow based on Never's list. Here goes nothing. I will post any further questions concerning assembly if I have them, but I have found someone in town who should be able to help me. Once again, thanks for all the help.
  11. I will be trying to keep my gaming activity to moderate levels at most, so the GTX 750 Ti is still be preferred option. Is there any particular reason for your choice of CPU? Could there potentially be a cheaper alternative? Would there be much of a price difference or reason to get a 500GB or so Hard Drive compared to 1TB?(Wondering if 1TB may be excessive) Everything else looks good. Also, could you kind of explain this whole business of getting Windows by key? I do not have an account on Reddit either. Thank you so much for the help.
  12. My birthday is coming soon this month, which is part of the reason why I need to make a choice in a timely manner (the computer was not intended to be a birthday present), so I suppose I could get some support from that. However, the price is still a bit higher than I'd like. The graphics card in particular seems to be more than I am wanting/needing. If one or both are compatible with the setup, I would prefer either the Radeon R7 265 or the GTX 750 Ti. The biggest problem I had with building a computer was finding all the parts that would fit my need and budget. With your all's help now, I think I can move past that fairly easily. The other issue for me though is actually putting the pieces together, as I have never done something of the like before.
