To commemorate the July 4th Idependance Day holiday, in conjunction with our good friends at CyberPower, Intel, Kingston, and CoolerMaster, we're giving away yet another full, quad-core powered system! This time around, you could win a full Intel Core i7-875K-based system, complete with a GeForce GTS 250 1GB graphics card, an Intel SSD and 4GB of Kingston RAM!

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 many previous contests, there's a twist (see below):

Processor: Intel Core i7 875K CPU

Primary Storage
: Intel SSD 40G

Motherboard:
ASUS P7P55D-E PRO

Case
: CoolerMaster 690II Advance

Memory:
4GB Kingston Hyper-X

Secondary Storage:
1TB Hitachi HD

Optical Drive:
Samsung 8X Blu Ray

Graphics:
GeForce GTS 250 1GB

PSU
: 800 Watt Power Supply

OS:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Misc:
Card Reader, KB and Mouse

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 or Canada. 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 here in the news and in the forum. We will be randomly selecting a winner based on community involvement and quality of contribution. You can also increase your chances of winning by signing up for our HotHardware News Alerts or becoming a fan of HotHardware via our respective Facebook or Twitter pages. And it couldn't hurt to become a fan of the CyberPower PC Facebook page either! The contest will run through July, and we'll announce the winner on Monday, August 2, 2010.

This is a great chance for to you to win a custom, powerful new system. Now go make some new friends in the forum and get in the running! Good Luck!

You know what's funny...I bought my father a computer with the exact same case (specs: Core i3 530, WD Black 500 gig, GTX 240). It is a very good case that offers great ventilation. It would be interesting to have a matching set in the house. :P

great prize! the inclusion of the SSD demonstrates that the performance of the machine wasn't a mere afterthought; it would have been very easy to just stop at the 1 TB conventional disk

I was wondering when the next contest would happen, as we have not had one in a while. As far as I can remember this has been one of the longer breaks between contests. The specs on this machine seem nice, and I also know CyberPower does good work inside a case.

As far as these components directly this looks like a very nice mix. The Motherboard is sweet with some enhanced features as expected on an ASUS board. It also has a very nice layout. The other products all seem to be quality, and I especially like the case.

Good luck to everyone :)

What, we don't have to write a story this time?

I could use a new box to stick that 5870 in. Or am I getting greedy? (Answer: Yes.)

Let's not forget, though, that "Independence Day" is actually July 2.

@lifeskills (below): Yes, you're quite correct, it's a 5850. I'm still not going to throw it out of bed for eating crackers. For some reason the specs were better than my current 5850, though, so it's still an upgrade-- and maybe I'll even CrossfireX the two of them and make a monster!
