Update! HH/Intel Core i For The Mainstream Guy/Gal Sweepstakes!

We thought it was high time to temp and tease you all a bit, with our latest Sweepstakes courtesy of our friends at Intel.  Yes, even you could win a fully equipped Core i7 870 (2.93GHz) system built by CyperPower PC.  There's still time to get into the drawing that will be closing this Friday, October 9th!  Let's roll the Ts and Cs for you here...

Rules and Regs:
As usual, we’ll be giving away this rig away to a randomly selected contributor to our on-line forum and news discussion systems.  To be entered into the sweepstakes, you’ve got to be a registered, active member and a resident of the United States or Canada (Canadian winners are responsible for all international duties/taxes). If you’re not already a member, you can sign up quickly and easily (and it's free), right here or click the log-in link at the top, right nav bar of HotHardware.com.

System Spec Update!
OK, we have some good news and a bit of a change to the system spec, now that we've actually received it from the manufacturer (see below).  First, instead of it being equipped with a GeForce GTX 295, the system is actually setup with a GeForce GTX 285.  Sorry for the misprint there but a GTX 285 is certainly no slouch graphics card either.  Have no fear though, to make it up to you, CyberPower tossed in a 22" widescreen monitor by Viewsonic.   Also, the case has been upgraded to a CoolerMaster Sniper Storm Gaming case.  Check out the knob on the top that allows you to adjust fans speeds manually.  Ooohh... ahhh!

But you've got to be in to win!  From this point forward, we’ll be monitoring discussion on the site and will be randomly selecting a winner based on community involvement, contribution and comments, lots of comments! To increase your chances of being a winner, sign up for our HotHardware RSS News Alerts as well, and we'll toss your name into the mix for double credit!




  

The sweepstakes runs through October 9th with a winner to be announced October 12th 2009!

Wow nice case update, the video card change is ummm, Well it is still a good video card not like the 285 is any slouch for sure.

As I have posted a few times, I am currently planning to build a new system for a neighbor. For the CPU I have finally settled on an i7/860, is the i7/870 in this one is a very nice cpu. I settled on the 860 because he has a certain price point, and to get everything I wanted on his computer the 860 fits the bill. The case it was going to be in was nice but the Sniper is even better. Plus who could call adding a 22" monitor to the package is any kind of downgrade as well.

Wow I can really get updated, with a system like that.  I have little money and I am a gamer so this system is perfect for me.

0

Wow, looking good!  Can't go wrong with a complete rig.

0

I think the system just got better. The new flat screen is a really nice touch.

Again, whomever is the winner of this game-eater system will be blessed. Geeked

Very nice rig.

Doesn't matter if the new card is a small downgrade, it's still much better than what I got.

 

Anyway, no way I win this in the timeframe without spamming. Sad

This is a response generally to the new members who show up whenever one of the giveaways comes about. You should stick around this forum, as I must say it is one of the best out there. One of the many advantages especially for someone newer to computers or hardware within them, or even someone with a great deal of exp. that has just found HH. The discussions on this board in particular are generally more personal and direct to specific HW questions and needs. I have been around for several years now on this forum, and know the regulars here to generally be good people, helpful individuals when a need arises, and just great people in general.

I really like that case and the cable management is excellent! That system would deffinately entitle the owner to some braggin rights!!!

Good luck to all.

I like the cabling too - Very very clean. They do good work.

0
+ -

You're right! Didn't even see the cabling before it was mentioned. The airflow also looks great.

Thanks for the update. The GTX 285 is a powerful card and consumes less power so this is a very minor change, except that the monitor really sweetens the deal for those who don't have any kind of desktop setup.

Since I'm running off an older Toshiba laptop, this would be an awesome win!

oh an extra 22" monitor never hurts!

0
+ -

I win?

0
+ -

Oh wow, the monitor more than makes up for the 295 to 285 switch. That's a great deal of extra value. And 16,200 3DMarks still walks all over what most of us have so no complaints. I think I prefer this case to the original, but both are cool looking so who knows.

Good luck fellows. Hopefully the winner sticks around.

Monitor and case upgrade, Crisis Causer; that Sniper Storm is a mucho sweeto midtower!

And the GeForce 285 is miles better than the card I have now, an ATi Radeon 3850 in an AGP 8x slot; I don't think anyone is going to complain about getting it!

0
+ -

Thats a definite clem, I am running a 3870 myself in a PCI express 1 slot. As I have been talking about the system I am building for my neighbor, I wish I could build a new system for myself, but money is still to tight for that right now.

0

Looking good. Can't wait to see the victor. The 22" LCD is a really nice addition. No use in all that power on a old 15 CRT.

0

It's still a great prize! The monitor looks nice. If only it was open worldwide...Wink

Not a bad 3d mark score...
