HH Holiday Sweepstakes with Digital Storm - Win A Killer System!To get you all into the holiday spirit, we joined up with our friends from Digital Storm and put together yet ANOTHER monster sweepstakes give-away! This time around we gave you all a chance to win an Intel Core i7 950-infused gaming rig with 6GB of DDR3 memory, a 1TB hard drive, a Radeon HD 6870 graphics card and water cooling by Asetek, among many other goodies.

The complete parts list and breakdown for Digital Storm's sweet Special|Ops System for this sweepstakes is listed below. And just below that, we announce the winner!


SammyHayabuza--You are the winner!

Shoot me a note with your full contact information and I'll let you know when the machine ships!  Congrats and Happy Holidays from Team HotHardware!

And for the hundreds of runners-up (there are no losers around here!), keep those commenting fingers limber--we'll be announcing our next giveaway VERY soon. That's if we can clean up all this sand in the lab and bridge the gap between some OEMs...

Congratulations Sammy, as Tom said, welcome to the club. We look forward to seeing you around here for a long time because you have a lot to add to the mix.

Many of you newer guys should also consider staying around.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you.

Sorry for the late response bro, you can see some pics in my profile. I haven't made a  show off thread because I took the photos with A low resolution Cell phone camera, and they don't do the Rig justice.  I took it out for while and stored back in the box, because I'm saving up to make it into an awesome video editing / work machine. As well, I might even get a second 6870 to play Crysis , Dead Space 2 and other games smoothly in 1080p with lots of eye candy.
