Wonderful EVE Players

We want to offer you game time in exchange for your old hardware.
Sound good? Then please read on in order to find out more.

Basically our stock of minimum system requirement machines at CCP has been almost depleted and because some of the min spec hardware is quite hard to obtain, we come to you in an attempt to find the more elusive items. So if you have 1 or more of the items on the list below, we can offer you free game time in exchange.

What we need:
• CPU: Intel Pentium® or AMD @ 1,5 Ghz which supports SSE2.
• RAM: XP (SP2) – 1 GB / Vista – 1.5 GB
• Video: Nvidia 6000 series.

What you will get in exchange:
• Per item we will give you a 6 month subscription.
• CCP will also pay for the freight.

Instructions:
• If you have any of the coveted items, please contact us before proceeding
• To contact us, please file a petition in the “other issues” -> “community” category with the subject “Hardware for GameTime”
• In the petition, tell us in which country you live along with information about the hardware you have

Our people will get back to you and give you further instructions on how to send us the items.

Why does CCP need these old relics?
In order to make sure that all the content we roll out can actually run on a PC with the minimum system requirement, we have to test rigorously first inhouse on min spec machines.

Disclaimer:
In the unlikely event that we get too many offers, we will accept the closest ones until our needs are met.

Wow, now I have to go dig through old junk here at home. Smile

Started to scratch the surface, so far I got:

AMD Duron 1000 - 1000 MHz - August 20, 2001 - DHD1000AMT1B





Edit: Had to post my first find! Hm, as I dig around here I remember letting someone take as much as he wanted from my old computer stuffs, a few years back. Looks like I might have some P4 and mems though. I'll petition it if it matches your request.

I have an old PC lying about with either an ATI X700 or X1050 if that helps. Can't remember the other specs unfortunately till I boot it up.

my wife hates the fact that i keep my old computers, but this might work out very well for me :)

edit. are you looking for a system with those specs? or just the parts?

because if you are just looking for the parts, i might never have to pay for eve again. confirmations would be nice

I have exactly what you need, except its a Radeon X300 not a Nvidia... However there isn't anything under the community tab for a petition....

Am I missing something?

I have several computers with the following Specs:

PIV 2.8 and 3.0 CPU's
1GB DDR2 RAM
Graphic Cards vary. But none are gaming cards.
All machines have hard drives, but I can't give you the OS.

I have about 4-5 of these computers.

Send me ingame mail if you're interested.

To clarify...

Do you want complete rigs, or just the parts, or either?

I have tons of parts sitting around the house, but no completed computers except what is in use.
