For a few months *since january or so* I've been saving up money to start a invite only LAN in my basement. My first thoughts were that I was going to build four or five computers at about 500 dollars each. This ideas was killed when I upgraded the computers to 600ish dollars and I figured I had to have money to set everying up...who would have thought. So, my final descision was that I would build 3 computers from scratch and upgrade a computer I was trying to sell for a total of four downstairs in the lan at a minimum. I bought headsets, mice, keyboards, computers, mouse pads, etc. All together it came out to around $2,055.
