I'd love to have this system for some gaming, but think of the impact it would have on the kids of the church community I pastor! Blessings to all.

So what time shall the beast be unleashed? 

Also, i've already done the nekkid thing around here....HH case badge over the ol' nip-nip. Everyone loved it! I win this thing and I'll stand nude with the system in front of my blocking the goodies.

Davo Monthly contests would drive in a large crowd, but you guys would have to dish more out of your pockets each month =P.

Nelson: I agree man regarding forums being too large. The ones I visit always have a vast member list. I can't tell you how many long posts I fill out in similar length or longer than this.

http://hothardware.com/cs2007/forums/t/37029.aspx 

I have quite a few on toms hardware and some other forums. But at the amount these rate this rig threads come up, I just can't keep up...lol. Which is one reason I've been typing up a guide, but haven't had much time lately to get more done...First couple days I got here I typed up 7 pages  or so. Still need to fill out the rest. =P

But yea, this is going to be quite interesting...I wonder what time the winner will be announced though, my sleeping schedule is so messed up right now, it's 7:45 pm, I just woke up 45 minutes ago, sleeping at around 10-11:30 am...>_<...not healthy..lol...But I don't get tired when I'm working on my computer. Got a video project I'm working on =P.

You've got a great shot at it... since joining just a week ago, you've been a posting machine averaging like 2 posts an hour!!!

I have officially nicknamed this rig the Octopwner, so the winner has to call it that any time they mention it in a post! :P

Ah, just imagine the feeling that you would have when you wake up in the morning and you check your email and you see something that you have not seen yet. You open up the email, and it says that you got a PM at HotHardware.com. So you come here log on, and read the email and it says You have Won. WOW that would be an extremely good feeling! :) Can't wait to see who will win. Good luck Kamrooz and all the others. And Kamrooz, you have a good shot at the contests since you were active the whole time, so you probobly have a better luck winning that I am.

Peti: Thanks man =P.....The reason I started actually started posting was indeed because of the contest, but I've been a long time visitor of hot harware, I just visit so many sites that I don't register for all the sites I visit. But definitely found a nice home here =P...I've pretty much dropped TH...tired of that forum, and have become less active at the others...and plan to keep it that way ^_^.

But in regards to the contest...I'm under the impression that those who are active and genuinely contributing to the community are selected as a choice for the contest, than out of those choices someone is randomly selected...So it can go to anyone ^_^...I actually prefer it that way. Very fair =P...Although it does lower my chances >_<...rofl. but good luck to everyone! =D. Whoever wins, make sure you game it up for all of us =D.

I've been posting more than usual lately... not necessarily for the contest exclusively, but to try to keep up with the Kamster.

Couldn't just let some new guy come in and start posting like crazy uncontested lol! :P

BTW: Good luck to everyone!!!

=P...I wasn't bestowed with mutant fingers for no reason...lol. But considering I try to make as much money as I can at home building/fixing rigs, and via webdesign....It makes it easier to post often considering after 5-20 minutes of work, I just give a quick refresh to see if there are any new posts up ^_^. It's a task to make sure I don't post in the old 2 months or so old threads...They are right at the very top =P...and with the forums I normally visit, the entire first pages are all normally fresh replies...lol. A welcomed change of pace though...I know more people here now than I did at tomshardware, where I spent a quite a bit of time along with other forums I visit.

Man...this wait is gonna kill me. My sleeping schedule is so messed up right now. I probably won't go to sleep till around 11 am or 12 pm. I woke up at 7 pm today...I slept last night around 11 am. While you guys are all asleep..I'mma be refreshing waiting for posts and the results..then fall asleep at 11 if they don't come up...and wake up to find out the results...god I'm scared...LOL.

If Davo is reading this, will the results be posted on the 29th?...or is that just when the contest submissions have ended and you guys start up the review process? Embarrassed ...Might save me a few hours of anxiety...ROFL

Love offtopic convo's =P...lol.

I agree...If you google arond, there's actually a really shady and messed up past for the first family that sued him. When you have money and you're famous, you become a target...Get one type of lawsuit against you, similar outcries will come rolling in with people accusing the same. I believe he's innocent... and if you don't believe me...Beat it...MWhaahha! Horrible joke for the win! =P

But yea, everyones entitled to their own...but I believe he's innocent =P.

I swear if you win it...Stick out tongue

You see, I'm still bugged about you winning that Radeon X1900XT a couple years ago in the Counter Strike tournament.  As hard as I tried, my team still lost.  Not that I wasn't thankful for the t-shirt, I still wear it sometimes.Stick out tongue

Any second now, eh? :)

You guys had a counter strike tournament?!?!?!...CRAP!..Where have I been?!?!?..ROFL.

My skill level was cal-m/p back in the day. I played from time to time with some of the greats..One of them being Michael "Method" So. (Who's now on Team 3D, that guy is just insane...).  Damn..I wish I was around when you guys had that tournament..rofl. Was it for hot hardware? I have the worst luck when it comes to contests like this..Never have won anything in all the years I've tried..But I could of probably had a large chance in that one >_<.

Hmm...tourneys... yeah we can do that.  What's the general concensus on games of choice?  UT, CS?  Who has what for games?

Almost everyone probably has CS:S by now, and most computers can run it.  Call of Duty 4 is probably also pretty popular now.

Currently I have CS:S, DOD:S, UT3, UT2004, COD 1-4, TF2, GRAW2, Crysis...can't think of anymore right now. I was on your team Crysis but I still had a blast. We did the FEAR tourny also but I was out of town on that one and couldn't get in on it.

Davo- When will we know who won this bad boy. I'm all giddy!

I never got into CS:S much mainly because I'm sucky at it, but I'd play in a HH tourney though... why not.

BTW: Here we are on contest day and I'm uber sick with the flu... my throats on fire and I feel woozy. :(
