HotHardware Holiday Sweepstakes!

HotHardware Holiday Sweepstakes!

It’s that time again folks!  Time for another giveaway here at HotHardware!  We’ve teamed up with our friends at AMD and will be giving away prizes--including a complete small form factor PC--to three lucky winners. Instead of a straightforward sweepstakes, however, we wanted to have a little fun and get all of your creative juices flowing this time around.

We’re going to keep this one fairly open ended.  We want you all to stretch your legs, be as creative as you can be, and design the AMD / ATI powered PC (or PC component) of the future!  If you want to draw up a mini-super computer with an over-the-top graphics configuration--go for it!  Maybe you’ve got an idea for an awesome looking GPU heatsink? Or a funky new graphics card design? That would be cool too! Our main goal here is for everyone to have FUN, so anything goes!  And don't think you need to be an expert in 3D modeling to win. Like we said, we want you all to have fun, so just do your best with Paint if you have to!

In the end, the most impressive and creative designs take the cake, or components in this case!

Nah, no big deal.  We just launched the contest thread and have a lot of folks checking it out, so just wanted to clean it up a bit.

Are we allowed multiple entries?  I ask because my above entry although working together with each other could be considered two entries.  Whats more I have two other ideas I would like to submit.

Sure.  You're allowed multiple entries--just don't spam the thread.  If they're legit entries, go for it.

Interesting, just goes to show there is no such thing as a unique idea.  PM me with what you had in mind I am curious, or if its different enough submit it?
