Got my SSD today and its FIRST prize! :D 480GB.

Now i have a dilemma on my hands :/ lol. Im debating if i should sell the SSD to fund my wants of getting the surface pro when it comes out, sell it and keep the cash or use it(but i won't be putting it to any good use in college). What do u guys think i should do?

480GB SSD is bad to the bone.

Keep it and use it

Yeah would have to agree. When was the last time you thought of buying a 480GB SSD ? But then again, you know what your needs and wants are better than us. Still would evaluate some options as to possible graphics upgrade or  psu and other stuff before considering a tablet, But if that is what is going to be the best option for you .then go for it.

Meanwhile had a bit of luck and this arrived a few days ago

Nice tee shirt tossed in with the HD 7850 OC card too :)

Thanks everyone!

Congrats rrplay! :D

As for the upgrades, i did plan to do a new build this year but then since im in college there really is no use for a desktop. So the SSD will either go into my laptop (but  i don't think i will benefit from it/put it to good use), or be sold to fund my  tablet(but then again would be it any better then my laptop?, it would just be handier for class). Maybe stuff the SSD in the tablet xD. Do you guys think the surface pro is going to be any good? or any tablet for college in general?

Been pretty quiet on the contest front for me lately. I did win a Thermaltake Armor Revo Gene Snow Edition case and matching Frio Ock CPU Cooler from Thermaltake's Lucky Poke contest game last month though.

The Official rules state:  "The Grand Prize Winner will be selected in a random drawing conducted on July 26"?  Yikes!  That's got to be a typo.

I doubles as a beard growing contest as well.

Throw away your razors gents! (and hope that a girl doesn't beat us!)

Hey guys, I think I have most of the regulars here on FB but just in case you didn't see it, I am in the Kingston tech contest (designing a USB), I would love your votes (ya I hate asking for votes) You guys helped me win a long time ago, lets see if you can do it again! :) I'm not looking for 1st, but placing near the top would be epic :)

Done.

Hey guys don't forget about this one,

They need about 80 entries to be able to give the thing away. NAS devices are sweet for storing your files centrally in the house.

LOL I was trying to come up with something girly since I never see any around. Maybe it would be a nice gift for a geeky girlfriend, it would last longer than a real rose ;p

 

Thanks for voting guys! :)
