Volunteer used hardware

Have an old PC or GPU sitting in your closet collecting dust? List it here so the devs can peruse what the community has that they could potentially use to aid the development process. To be clear all listings should be donations only, this isn't the place to sell your 1080 so you can get a 1080ti. Devs if you have something in particular you are looking for let us know we can probably track down what you are looking for in our local craiglists and community networks or PC shops so you can purchase (or have it donated) from across the country. 40 eyes are better than 4.

I'll start.

I've got a ATI sapphire 4870 GPU sitting in a box, probably a 7870 box actually (it's replacement). It was purchased in winter 2009, never overclocked or modded. Not a modern rocket ship by any means but I was pretty darn happy with it.

I'll be getting a new rig

I'll be getting a new rig soon. A friend of mine told me his brother might want the old one, but if not, I'd be willing to ship it to MWM after some wiping of the hard drives. It has 4 TB of HD space on two conventional hard drives and a 256 GB SATA SSD. It was purchased 6 years ago from IBuyPower.com. Asus Sabertooth X58 mobo. Intel i7-980 CPU. 12GB of DDR3-2000 single RAM (6 two-gig sticks). AMD Radeon 6990 with 4GB of onboard memory, supports a maximum of PCIe 2.0 x16 bus. Pretty sure it (the video card) has 2 processors on it. It also has a Soundblaster sound card, for some reason. According to AMD's website, this card is not getting Win 10 support for drivers, as far as I can tell, which is one of the reasons I'm still using WIN 7, and also one of the reasons I'm getting a new computer. It has a 1050Watt power supply and the whole kit is inside a really heavy-duty CoolerMaster HAF932 case. Has a 12-in-1 card reader and an LG 12x Blu Ray combo drive, both of which almost never get used. It also has a couple of USB 3.0 ports on the front which I don't believe are plugged into anything inside the case, for some reason.

Interesting offers. I know I'm definitely flattered and honored with them. We probably need to pass this by our legal people to make sure we won't have any issues accepting things like this though. But until we get a definite answer don't let this deter you from doing this. We are a community company as far as I'm personally concerned and this is the spirit we encourage.

Given our lack of a central address, it'll be tricky to route physical things to the devs without giving out personal information.

Has anyone seen my mind? It was right here...

P.O. Box in a larger city? Could solve that. Then whoever gets the hardware could distribute it amongst the devs.

Well, I'm in the Kansas City area, We have another person in New York, another in Washington state (where we are registered as a corporation), some more in Canada (Ontario for example), I think some more in England... we have around 50 people spread out across three continents. Distribution can get a little tricky!

Sorry to disappoint, but my friend told me his brother will take my old rig. I'm trading it to him for magic cards, actually.

On the bright side, I'll be playing CoT on my NEW rig, which will arrive in like 3 weeks.

"... we have around 50 people spread out across three continents. Distribution can get a little tricky!"

Very good point! That sounds kind of unnecessary.
