Holy Crap! If I wasn't already in a wheelchair I'd have to go sit down!

I don't know what to say, to do.

Thanks to Intel and to CyberPower PC, for supplying this awesome computer that I will cherish and enjoy for years.

Thanks to HotHardware for the contest and for making it so interesting for those of us who belong to this board.

Thanks also to those who posted repeatedly right along with me while competing for this prize. Everyone deserves such stellar competition.

I have to go now and tell the family. Thanks again to all. I'm so Happy,.......

congarts Realneil. This contest has really sparked some new members all of which who I hope stick around as I am sure there will probably be more giveaways in the future just like HH has continued to do. Enjoy your rig and I have appreciated your contributions here along with everyone else. Hopefully I will get back up to my regular posting when all the crazyness is over this month. Now go get yourslef a decent camera so you can take some sweet looking pics!

Thanks for the congrats everybody. I appreciate it allot.

I have a Nikon so in time there will be pics. I have to clear a space for it now.

Gonna give my old one to someone who really needs a computer but can't afford it. It's not much but it's working well and I know they'll appreciate it. It's cool to be able to give mine away and know I won't miss it.

Maybe they'll leave the benchmarking software on the new one. Otherwise I don't have any that works more than one run.

I can't wait to see what games are really supposed to look like. LOL!

Woohoo! Good on you, realneil, and enjoy the rig-- I'm way jealous, but hey, at least we know it's going to be put to good use. ...By which I mean gaming.

Yes, gaming,......

I'll be here, I'm not going anywhere.

Thanks for the congrats everyone, I still pinch myself every now and then.

I sent mail out to my friends and family with the news last night. and they're all happy for me.

I told them that they know about HotHardware now, so there is no reason they couldn't win too if they just participate. (I sound like an Ambassador or something)

This is still sinking in,..........Wow!

So I've been checking out the photos of this system and the MainBoard has a little Skull that lights up on the bottom right hand corner. That's a feature of Intel Boards, so I began looking around a little and found this board on Newegg.com. The two eyeball lights flash with disk activity and the Skull is lit constantly.

This truly is built with quality. I can't wait.
