I'll definitely write a personal review for you guys once I get a little gaming out of my system =P. I'll run benchmarks and pretty much anything you guys want me to run. ^_^...I've always wanted to see the difference between memory timings and dividers in real world scenarios and not synthetic benchmarks..now that I have a computer that can actually game and edit/render...I'll write a review regarding that as well =D. God I can't wait! ^_^....now I just need to be patient ^.^..

OK, Dave and I have hammered out almost all of the details regarding our next sweepstakes.  We're just waiting on two small details and we'll outline the system's specifications.  We will say it will be powered be a Core 2 Duo E6750, riding along on a killer nForce 680i mobo wiht a couple of gigs of RAM and an 8800 GTS.  The PSU and CPU cooler will also be top notch...stay tuned...

I doubt it, but if I had too...I guess I'd have too..lol. Don't know what else to say to that...If this was like a government based lottery it'd make sense, but I doubt it for something like this. But who knows =P..It would suck though >_<...But considering what I'm getting I'd do it in a heart beat...

 Good luck to everyone in the upcoming contest ^_^.

Just realized I'll be without almost any internet access from Friday night through Saturday the 15th.  I'll be able to check email once a day or so, but no forums.  Ack, I hope this doesn't hurt my chances on this next contest.Tongue Tied

I haven't seen him on in months. He landed a new job and hasn't been on nearly as much. He still use to pop in every once in awhile. It's a shame though cause he really knows his stuff especially when it comes to silent cooling and psu's. He didn't get that post count by spamming either. He has just been around forever and knows alot. I think he works for some company in the UK writing articles on silent pc's or something like that now.

Are winners declared based on activity? or is there a list of people who qualify, and of that list everyone is equal?  (except for RSS feed users of course)

 Mmmm, swell looking case. Never had Radeon in my house, always went with nVidia, since Linux could usually handle that okay from what I read.  Until I bought a 9600GT.  But my gaming rigs have always had Windows XP.  So I would definitely need to replay several games or perhaps buy new ones for this computer.  And do some BOINC.  Yes, I would have fun with this and tell you all about it, but I am sure there are others more deserving and whose electric bills aren't as high as mine.  So I'd take it, but I don't really need it, is what I'm saying.  I guess I'd worry that it might burn out the outlet I'd probably plug it into, since there's alread a quad core there.  But there is an empty spot on the kvm for it.  

Hey, Pam, remember when I said this car was death proof? Well, that wasn't a lie. This car is 100% death proof. Only to get the benefit of it, honey, you REALLY need to be sitting in my seat.
