Stream Setup Progress Report and Raffle Reminder

Incase you haven't noticed, we have been running Eightarc Fusion Raffles to raise money for streaming equipment. Half of the money raised has gone to commando to upgrade his gear so we can keep streaming tournaments from Super Arcade. I have put the other half towards buying a streaming computer and other equipment to be able to stream random games from my home. First, I'd like to thank everyone who has entered the raffle and has supported this web site since day one. We obviously do not get paid to do what we do at ATP and the fan support means a lot. I would like to show you guys exactly what I'm doing with the money we raise. Below is a list of components I have purchased as of now.

Insomnotek will be assisting me with the assembly of this computer because I don't know what I'm doing. Keep in mind, this PC is strictly for streaming as I do not like or play PC games. 

Huge thanks to Commando, Offcast, and everyone else (especially on twitter) who has helped me in the selection process of this computer. 

I had to dig pretty deep into my pockets to make this purchase and make this whole thing happen but I think it will be worth it in the end. 

If you haven't already bought your raffle tickets, and are interested in supporting the killers of esports, make sure you buy your raffle tickets asap. I will announce the next winner this Sunday. Everyone who does not win will automatically be entered into the following raffle which will take place next week. Huge thanks to Eightarc for supporting our web site and streams.

Awesome stuff. Are you going to be running tournaments out of your house, or is this for streaming online matches and the like?

@Tech, I'll be streaming and capping tutorials, online/offline play of multiple games (not just fighting games) as well as other stuff. Hopefully everything will work out according to plan.

When TTT2 arcade hits, should do a running stream like they do in japanese arcade of live games. People can tune in at random times to see the competition. Also works as a way to let other people know if people are there, whether to come or not.

You should have a 24/7 streaming of your whole house. Put a camera in the livingroom, bedroom, kitchen and maybe even the bathroom???

Holy crap, what a gaming PC you are naking. You should be able to max out Crysis on that rig. Which you HAVE to try, BTW, at least once.

That's quite a powerful PC setup Aris... That setup will allow to create a lot of tutorials, and broadcast streams for sure..
Good job..

Dude, dropping some knowledge on you BROski. That thurr machine, I would steal that. Hell, I'd probably do the nasty with an old Oak out back. But broadcasting this inferrmation crost the whole weeb? That's ballsy my boy. You got big balls dontchya? Lettin em just hang out, probably on a patio. Maybe there's a sun shining up above, getting toasty? I bet they are, but it's all right. Just let the world see em.. .but what's that? They're still geetun hottuh? Too much attention from the sun? BUHZZZZAPDURBADINE. You just got sun zapped muh boy. Balls'll never work again. All because you wanted to draw attention to the poor cuhchigger.

Aris 0. This guy 1.
