HotHardware's Independence Day Sweepstakes

HotHardware's Independence Day Sweepstakes

Just a reminder folks!  In conjunction with our good friends at AMD, Corsair, and Western Digital, we're giving away yet another full, quad-core system this month!  This time around, you could win a full AMD Phenom X4 9750-based system, complete with a GeForce 8800 GTS graphics card and a brand new Western Digital Black Edition hard drive!

The complete parts list and breakdown is listed below!  As we've done with previous sweepstakes, we’ll be giving away this rig away to a randomly selected contributor to our on-line forum and discussion systems, but like last month there's a twist (see below):
 

Processor: AMD Phenom X4 9750

Graphics: XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 320

Case: Gigabyte 3D Aurora (Black)

PSU: Enermax Galaxy 850 Watt

Memory: 4GB Corsair DDR2-8500 Memory

Motherboard: Asus CrossHair

Hard Drive: Western Caviar Black Edition

Optical Drive: Lite-On DVD-R / RW

Miscellaneous: Arctic Cooling Freezer 64


To be entered into the sweepstakes, you’ve got to be a registered, active member of our forum and a resident of the United States. If you’re not already a member, you can sign up quickly and easily (and for free), right here.

From this point forward, we’ll be monitoring discussions on the site and forum and will be randomly selecting a winner. You can increase your chances of winning by signing up for our HotHardware RSS News Alerts.  Finally, to coincide with the upcoming Independance Day holiday, we're going to give extra credit to anyone who makes a charitable contribution to the Disabled American Veterans Fund.  Make a donation - of any size - and forward a copy of your receipt to this e-mail address for another chance to win.  Donations are NOT a requirement to win, but with Independence Day coming up we thought this was a good opportunity to give something back to the military.  We here at HotHardware will be making a contribution to the DAV fund as well.  The winner of the rig will be announced Monday, July 7.

This is a great chance for to you to win a custom, powerful new system and to help out the many men and women who have selflessly served in the U.S. military. Now go make some new friends in the forum and get in the running!  Good Luck!

The drawing moves closer every day such a sweet system and HH's dedication to giving it's loyal user base a chance of winning one is awesome. Hey and everyone don't let the Memorial day donations to the disabled veterans slack either. Any donation on that front is very appreciatted I just got my paper receipts for the two donations I made. You would be astounded at the population numbers for disabled veterans who got that way defending your and mine way of life in our great country.

They usually do the right job picking the winner, I have faith this time as well. Also If it happens to go to me I will ship Ice the gts 320 that it comes with if he still has not gotten his card replaced. I already have a 640, there is no reason for me to keep both. (I'm not Kam, I'll keep my word!)

That would be SUPER Mario (a.k.a. Mario Gastelum of Diamond), and HERE is the moment he became SUPER, imo!

 Well the date is getting closer and closer for the win and every time I look at the specs it gets more exciting.I myself would totally flip to win such a powerful rig.I definately would never get rid of it.Matter of fact if I was to croak I would put it in my will which would read total assets my truck and the Beast.Id give my truck to my boy and this beast to my daughter.Guarenteed she would never get rid of it.She loves a fast PC and she,s a Daddys girl.Anyway as usual Good luck to everyone here! And give it up to HH!

Wish my DAV receipt would get here so I could submit it before the drawing date!

Also, if I win, I'd be happy to offer up some of my old hardware. This includes:

-The AMD Athlon X2 5000+ that I won in last months' contest. It's still in the unopened box (can't afford the motherboard upgrade required right now).

-ATI Radeon X800XT 512MB. I realize this is not the latest and greatest (doesn't even run Crysis or BioShock...but it runs TF2!!), but is still a decent card and would be given to someone with an AGP based system that would benefit from such an upgrade.

-Creative Labs X-Fi Xtreme soundcard.

-I would offer up my motherboard/processor combo (ASRock DualSATA 939 + AMD Athlon 4000) but I don't think anyone would want them. If I am wrong, then I would offer those up as well.

If such a thing were to take place, all I ask is that the recipient pay for HALF of the shipping costs.

Yeah the system is nice and drawing time is getting close. Everyone please remember the give to the disabled vets or any veterans charity you choose. I donated in memorial for my father and grandpa and will probably do the same for my father in-law who passed away a couple weeks ago now. Oh and Props to the Marine core for the respect an gallantry shown at the funeral. Anyways back to this nice rig good luck to everyone.

 I have a feeling this months giveaway may not be as easy to choose a winner. Everytime I check on the top post counts on the forums someone different is at the top of the list. Now granted, I know it doesn't solely go off that but generally thats the individuals who have been winning. Just saying I personally haven't seen any 1 individual stand out way above the others. It may be a close one ya'll guess we'll see here soon enough. I just would like to see the winner announced before I leave for my trip Wed.

Good luck to all, it is one hell of a nice prize....again! I now it's a random drawing but I thought the winners were drawn from a pool of members who actually added to the forum, not just posted random nothings to gain a higher post count. I could be wrong though.
