he he Im finding that out.

It will run UT2004 without a problem though, which is surprising.

There are plans for a 500 meg vid card, and at least 2 gig of ram to put in it.

That should help!

so far this is what i have done:

Shoulders
Forearms
Thighs
Calves
Waist

im half way done with my helmet so by monday i hope to have finished constucting my pepakura skeleton. and will begin sculpting a more detailed version and will be finished fiberglassing it two weekends by from now. So by the 24th i hope to have it basically finished.

then comes painting and weatherong.

so after that i will be installing LEDs, a visor, and voice changer.
and maybe a fan and speakers for my iPOD. iwill try to install the fan if space allows.

Whats something good to reinforce cardboard besides fiber glass, cause im making a pepakura armor too, and i dont know what to reinforce it with.

Worse comes to worse i could just layer the the thing with more layers of board.

i gave all my armor a base coat of white paint and im using that Bondo-Hair stuff. i got it for free so that was pretty good. Sean was right its a little difficult to use but it works. ill be fiberglassing all of it in the next couple days. then painting. weathering. strapping. detail work(visor and LED). finished.
