Looks like another awesome giveaway! The blu ray drive is a nice addition.
Cool! I love that case, actually. Anything to make nice looking cases without those silly doors covering the drive bays. The system itself is nothing to sneeze at, either! Good luck to all!
Might I also encourage you to email the winners this time, rather than just alerting them via front page posts :P
Ummm Lev, we ALWAYS email the winners and also post to the page. Pass some of that stuff you're smoking buddy! :D
Even though Canadians are responsible for the duties/taxes, it's still good to see that they have a chance to enter for a wonderful prize. In fact, from my visits to this site in the past couple of years, Hothardware always manages to give away something big. :P
Wish i could sat the same for the UK:(
great looking rig!
That's a pretty awesome looking contest.
Very nice system... not to mention the case is pretty bad azz!
That system rocks!
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Another awesome system - thanks for the new promotion!
this system is amazing, i built my computer one month before the i7s came out, i thought they were gonna be too expensive for my budget
Everything's upgraded. Even the number of USB ports :P

What Dave said. I got a very nice email when they gave me that laptop HD (which I have yet to format for my friend-- blush). Which means that if I enter, and win, there's going to be talk of a fix. Oh well!
That rig sounds like the one I designed myself-- though I cheaped out on a few things, no Blu-Ray and an 860. I love the CyberPowerPC.com configurator... it's like playing a computer game where the result is a computer!

Very Sexy! It will be a real treat for who ever wins it....

wow, what an amazing prize.
Hmmm... good question! I'll ask.
Thanks for even offering such a prize. In times like these, most of us have to watch how we spend our money and such a system may be out of our reach.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
Jeepers! Does it come with that "New Computer Smell??"
Love it, very nice setup with nnew intel hardware goodness, Blueray etc. I never win, but I might as well try.
I am actually looking for components right now to build a new system for a friend. He is a photographer, and needs a new system very badly. So I would like to know what MB you guys are using, as I have seen a Lotta pre-release reviews of components on this test bed. However; I would like to see a full review of processor, MB, memory etc, and have results based more towards photo work (not video processing) straight Photoshop/Gimp performance.
I'm just being a pest because I never noticed I was supposed to be in on the UT3 tournament several months back. Didn't notice till afterwards, and then couldn't find any messages about it in my inbox (could have been hotmails asinine junk mail filter, which regularly removes things I want). It wouldn't have mattered anyway, though, since I was horribly busy at work that whole month and wasn't checking my personal email!
@Blazer, rapid1: I wondered that myself. So I did a little detective work. It was made easier since I only had to consider the boards offered by CyberPowerPC.com on their configurator.
The slot configuration (three PCIe x 16, two PCIe x 1, and two PCI) was a big clue; a lot of boards have two PEG slots, more or fewer short slots, an x 4 slot, etc. So it's down to
The Intel and GigaByte have the wrong number of PS/2 ports on the back (zero and one respectively). And there I stalled. The Asus boards (couldn't find pictures) probably have the same back panel configurations.
So, you're getting a mid- to high-end Asus board, which isn't anything to sneeze at. I'd guess that the Deluxe model is in the package, because the bundle doesn't skimp on anything else; good lord, the graphics card and CPU alone equal the budget for my next system! I don't know whether I should give away estimated prices, so I won't; but you can go to the system builders' websites, play around, and see what you get.
Jeepers! Does it come with that "New Computer Smell??"
Original or Smokey Barbeque?
SPAM-posters beware! ®
Hahah! Clem, I love the detective work here! You sleuth! We've also asked for a formal response on this question but our Intel contact is off for a day or two. Stay tuned. :)
O.o I must admit, it kind of amazes me that this is being givenaway. Good luck everyone!
Thanks for the detective work, Clem.
Yes, I thought it had an Asus P7P motherboard in it, There are allot of good reviews on all 4 motherboards you mentioned.
You know I have to put that case on my list for possibilities for my next build it is friggin sweet.
Very nice build. Good luck to all! I'm with Rapid...I never win but atleast I try! :)
Edit: Can Mods actually win these prizes? Been a Mod for a while now and never stopped to ask the question. :) Thanks guys!

Well..the smokey barbeque smell comes after one step too many on the overclock. (Which is totally unnecessary for this system, at least for me)
The return of Enter... not to throw this thread too off topic but what are you up to? I'm sure you can win this killer rig if you throw your weight around here some more.
Yeah; I think I am going to go with the Gigabyte board. I really don't care about PS2 ports anyway, I like USB keyboards/mice. The top en Gigabyte one also has two giga lan ports, and more PCI express than I will use on this anyway. He (the person who wants me to build him a photo editing PC) is mainly concerned with Photoshop, GIMP and still image manipulation. So 2 video cards is not going to help much with that (he does not game). I am thinking of either getting one of the 2GB 4870 ATI cards, or the 4890 cards.
