HotHardware and Origin New Year's Sweepstakes Winner!

HotHardware and Origin New Year's Sweepstakes Winner!

To ring in the new year, we announced an exciting sweepstakes, along with our friends at Origin PC and AMD, in which we planned to give away a custom painted, fully loaded AMD TWKR-powered system, complete with 4GB of RAM, an ATI Radeon HD 5970 graphics card, and a Western Digital 1TB Black Edition hard drive--among numerous other goodies.

The response we received after the announcement of the contest and throughout its duration was absolutely fantastic with hundreds of new members joining our community, posting thousands of comments throughout the forum and news. Before we announce the winner, we want to extend a big thank you to everyone that made this contest possible and of course to all of our loyal community members who participated.

Well, we've had a chance to sift through all of the data and we’ve picked a lucky winner.


She's All Yours, Gibbersome!

Are you ready for it? Drum roll please! And the Winner Is...

gibbersome

Now everyone, congratulate your compatriot gibbersome and prepare for our next exciting give-away!

Once we've got the details hammered out, we'll announce the next contest, but we promise it won't be long.

Thanks,
Team HotHardware

By caos420: "This website is a joke no noobie ever stood a chance at winning that rig."

You're wrong,.... I was a noobie as you put it when I won the last system. You just can't handle the fact that sweet little you didn't win this one. How could we not see how wonderful you are? I mean,.....you're even giving people free copies of software that's NOT free! You had to warned by a mod for your acid posts a day or two ago. And they should have ignored that and rewarded you,........I just can't believe that you can't see yourself and how you're acting. If this is normal and you're really gone, then good.

Oh man!!!

I'm excited....beyond excited!! My hands are trembling so much typing this!

OMG, thank you guys, thank you sooo much!

 

This has been such an amazing experience! Thank you, everyone, from Origin PC for their INCREDIBLE generosity, AMD....for being awesome, the HotHardware Admins, Dave, Marco, words can't express my gratitude, and the HotHardware community, you've made this an amazingly fun ride!! I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, fun group of guys to post along with. THANK YOU!

I am tearing up, I have no idea what to say. This is just the happiest night of my life!

I gotta go wake up and tell everyone I know!!!

Obviously you were using Google Dictation to write that. It may have modified your original cussword.

 

Seriously, congrats, and I'll be over your house regularly if Blue Wilhelm doesn't boot up!

Congrats gibbersome. Looks like you got a new toy to play with. We are all very happy for you and thanks HH for another great contest and 2 more giveaways to follow right after! I am begining to think you guys won't stop till everyone at HH has won a new system Big Smile. Not complaining the least. I really had no idea you guys would keep this going this long when you started the first contest. 

As for certain individuals, Obviously by their comments made they came to the forums for 1 reason only. People like this don't take long to stand out and it was pretty obvious to me by the type of posts and amount of them that they were only here for 1 reason. To that person, did you honestly think that nobody noticed that. And then to dig your own hole further by hurling personal insults directly at people? This is a great community here and if you think the loss of one childish person trying to destroy that is really going to hurt this site then you really didn't read through all the old posts you were digging up then did you! I love seeing new people on here but if your gonna join only for free gear and to stir up trouble then please go somewhere else.

 

Gibbersome man enjoy that sweet rig. Enjoy having you around bud!

Dave, Marco are just awesome folks. Realneil already put in words better than I could. We're pretty darned lucky to have admins who give back to the community as much as they do.  In fact, I don't know of any other tech site that gives back as much as HH! Moreover, they listen to the members and that's why we see them taking the trouble to open up the next contest to Canadians!

It's no wonder that we have an intelligent, helpful bunch of moderators and members, it all trickles down from good leadership at the top.

And you're right, so many people here have won. No sooner is the winner of one contest announced that they're already planning the next one!

 

Dave_HH:

Congrats Gibbs! Enjoy it and post up some benchmark runs once you get it setup! :D

 

Thanks Dave! My gf indicated to me that I'm in danger of overdoing this gratitude thing, kinda like a long, drawn out Oscar acceptance speech. So I'll leave you and Marco with this offer: If you need ANY prescription medication, opiates, psychedelic or erectile dysfunction, etc, I'm your man. Big Smile

Thank you! It's been a whirlwind couple of days! I'm thinking of having an unboxing party at my apartment when the computer arrives! Red carpet, free bar, the works! All the unsold superbowl party supplies should be on sale by then, lol.

Wow, thank you for the congrats everyone!

3vi1, Kraulerson, rapid1, Soupstyle, acarzt, rjr222, outajob, Super Dave, RA1D....I really appreciate the kind words. You guys are all incredible! It's been such a fantastic experience...I'm running out of adjectives here!

And again, the HotHardware Admins, OriginPC, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm still in shock, it hasn't even begun to sink in.

I will be cherishing this system and this memory for the rest of my life. I've never had a system even close to anything like this!

I can't wait to replay all the games I have on high details and then go buy the ones I've been putting off!!! This is a dream come true!

Hey and now who cares if your laptop craps out, you will have graphics and operation most likely like you've never seen on your desk. I am sure this machine is going to blow your mind when you turn it on. Make sure you get AMD Overdrive 3 it's a must on an AMD system exceptionally this one.

Thank you rapid1!! I have been saving and scrapping to get a new system for the past year, but something always came up. I feel like there's going to be a new baby in the house! I am going to learn everything about this system inside and out.

Just woke up the gf and told her the news....she's having a hard time believing my online addiction actually amounted to anything, lol! But she's very happy for me cuz I really needed this.

Again, getting to know you guys on forum was a prize in itself! It's been an incredible ride. Special word for you, rapid, I enjoyed our discussions and the late-night meanderings! You were right there with me all the way!

I'm going to be sharing the HotHardware good word for a long time to come! I feel incredibly humbled and honored.

Huh, well I'll be...congrats, gibbersome. Someone I mutually know in this community actually won. Unfortunately, I wouldn't have been able to win since I don't live in the US. I wonder what happened to shipping both Canada and USA...they used to have that in their previous sweepstakes.

"Now everyone, congratulate your compatriot gibbersome and prepare for our next exciting give-away! We've actually got TWO awesome gaming rigs on tap for you all in the coming weeks / months--the giving just never stops around here! Once we've got the details hammered out, we'll announce the next contest, but we promise it won't be long."

Maybe the next one, Canadians can participate more as well. But as for me, I'll participate in forums and commenting because I am interested in the site...not because of the prizes that the administrators are dishing out. Of course, what they are doing is generous...and I would accept a great prize if I ever won it...but I'm not going to comment like crazy for the sake of trying to win a prize that has low odds of winning. My commenting should be meaningful, sensible and sometimes quirky instead being gibberish and boring for the sake of  winning a prize. I am all about quality  than quantity. I would prefer to obtain my new PC by earning it with my own skills and abilities since it provides a sense of pride on hard work. In any point, congrats to gibbersome and other participants who were involved in this contest.
