Building a PC
You should be fine with your MoBo's size crazy.

Now, I commend you for building your own custom computer, that's awesome. I personally have been spoiled by Apple Mac. "Once you go Mac, you'll never go back." So true.


Oh no.... They got another!

Kursed
What do you mean where's the drama? The drama is all around, you can sense it everywhere. When she sees him on Kew, she recognizes her, but she doesn't say a word, she just lets him walk by, and beforehand, she refuses to confront him, the drama there is that she refuses to do what's necessary for their relationship to survive. This causes Fox to think he's wasting his time, and she just eventually quits.

Building a PC
My computer was a barebones kit, and for 300 dollars I got an MSI 760GM-P33 motherboard, AMD Athlon II quad core processor, ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card, Cooler Master RC-310-RWN1-GP Elite 310 Mid-Tower Case, and a 350 watt power supply. For an extra 230 dollars I got 4 gigs of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB SATA hard disk drive, and a nice Nvidia GTS-450 graphics card. I'm pretty set, especially considering I can just put in new parts whenever I need them.

I don't normally recommend Intel processors btw, but that's just because of the price. AMD has a much better price to performance ratio, but Intel processors are better in terms of performance. The i7 is a pretty good choice, but personally I'd go with the AMD Athlon II quad core and overclock it to 4.1GHz, which is the highest safe speed with standard air cooling.

Your hard drive, you might wanna check Wal Mart, they sell the same exact one for 75 dollars. I got that HDD there two weeks ago, didn't miss a beat when I saw that price.

Optical drives are becoming obsolete, it's your call, but if you wanna maximize space for more HDDs or something, I would just use Steam and other DDS programs to get games, however they're quite cheap nowadays so your call.

Good choice for the case, did you look at measurements for the MoBo and Graphics card to make sure they'd fit all together in the case? You probably won't have a problem with it, but making sure is always a good thing.

The Power Supply is a good choice too, 750 watts, and it's a Corsair, those are the best computer stuff in my opinion. My memory is Corsair.

The ATI Radeon 6850 is a nice powerful card to get you going, if you want to cut down on price though, gimme a message, I'm good at finding really nice and really cheap things for computers.

Do you really need a wireless adapter? If so, hey, it's your money, but you can always get a USB one for cheaper, and since this is a desktop, I don't see much need for an integrated one, you won't be moving around a lot, plus, wired with a CAT-5 cable is sooooo much faster.

And the RAM, I missed this XD, Kingston is a good company, I like Corsair better, but Kingston is solid. Might wanna double check the prices though, Newegg is great, but I got better deals for lots of things on Tigerdirect.

Also, for PCIe slots, that's for your graphics card. PCIe 2.0 I think is the newest one. And as for Sandy Bridge, basically means that it's built completely differently than their older processors so as to function better and faster.

Kursed
Krystal started as a character from a completely different game, she was supposed to be a cat too. Rare went to Nintendo with their design for "Dinosaur Planet" and Nintendo said "Screw you Rare, we're gonna make this a Star Fox game, that'll REALLY rake in the dough" and it did. Anyway, no, I don't think that Krystal really fits in, if Nintendo hadn't rushed her story with stereotypes and cliche's, then sure, she'd fit in more.

Now on to Kursed. Kursed in my opinion is not a badass. I agree with Waffles's post almost wholeheartedly. If she were a REAL badass she wouldn't be afraid to confront Fox about these issues they had. And maybe if the story thereafter actually led somewhere, instead of some poorly thought out, halfassed cliffhanger, maybe, just maybe, she'd be a bit more likeable. Bounty Hunter = badass ONLY if you're talking about someone who has actually demonstrated their skill, IE: Jango Fett, Boba Fett, and Samus Aran. Kursed however, has not.

The regular characters have more story than Kursed and Krystal combined in my opinion. You actually know why Fox fights, you actually find out why each member is on the team. However, Krystal, you don't know anything about. She goes to some planet called Sauria... Why? Let's ask Mr Nintendo Dev, shall we?
Nintendo Dev: "Uhh, telepathy.. Yeah... Uhh, she is telepathic because she's a princess from another planet... Called Cerinia... Annd... All the residents of this planet have telepathy... Yeah."
Oh, really? I'd like to go there some time, where is it?
Nintendo Dev: "Uhh you can't... It's uhh... It was blown up by Andross, including Krystal's family... Yeah"
Ooookay.... So she went around looking for Andross in search of vengeance? The same way that the Star Fox team did?
Nintendo Dev: "No, oh no no no, she.... Uhh, she just got a telepathic signal of a planet in distress... Oh and she speaks the language of the indigenous people... Because she's telepathic, yeah"
Well screw you Nintendo, way to promise a good story and let us down with the actual reasoning behind why she's there.

Anyway, my point is, Kursed = not badass, and Story =/= badass. Story = good character, Bounty Hunter = badass if you prove it, and Krystal =/= a well thought out, or fitting character.

And I haven't even GOTTEN to Kursed's story. Basically, she joins Star Wolf, why? Because Fox wouldn't let her fight, and she joins Star Wolf. Why? I dunno, it made sense at the time? Apparently, bad people aren't so bad when your ex boyfriend hates them? I don't know, there isn't much logic behind it. But here's where it really gets you: She joins Star Wolf, and DOESN'T expect to be called a traitor. Now Star Fox is really famous, they're known about all throughout Corneria. Star Wolf is also well known, especially as the main enemy of Star Fox. Now, put two and two together, how can you lead me to believe Krystal wouldn't believe she would be called a traitor and generally hated like the rest of the freaking Star Wolf team? Now, that's not the worst part. The worst part is that when she found out she was being hated, and people were jeering her as she walked by, she LEFT. She freaking left her problems behind, went to start some new life doing something only briefly mentioned. And why did she leave her life behind and start a new identity? Because people were making fun of her. Not only is this a WTF moment, this is a sad moment for anyone with morals. If you screw up, and people ridicule it for you, you don't go and LEAVE and start a new identity, you suck it up and deal with it. You screwed up, this is your punishment, and now the love of your life won't even look at you anymore, He tried to wipe you away with booze and tears, and you just sit there behind your little console and watch. You see him once more on Kew, but what do you do? You stand there as he walks on by. I hope you're happy Kursed. Here's to you *Swills*

Star Wars: Blue team
(Well Kursed basically quit, we have sort of a story, but what he means is that he is going to write up something that will explain why we're missing a whole mess of characters.)

Star Wars: Blue team
(Lets continue it, I'm positive we can get more people in, we could make it an open RP, I bet we have some that are interested)
