the only thing I won was Santana tickets in the '70s

Santana was probably a ~great~ concert.

This rig would make my girlfriend jealous. Not because she's a techie but because I would play with this more than I play with her.

This contest is a great idea! I haven't noticed this forum until this contest was announced yesterday but I'm a HUGE tech enthusiast! I plan keeping up to date and involved in all the latest news, even after the contest has ended! Cheers!

Welcome to the site!

This truly is a great site with a friendly community where you can find answers to any question you may have. One of my favorite things about HH is that while we may not always agree, you can have a discussion without trolling and name calling.

Thank you for the warm welcome! I enjoy being around people who can put up informative posts and back up their arguments with sound logic or solid evidence. Hope I see your posts around often!

one thing about sticking around here is that it's entertaining and you'll learn a lot.

Some of the people who hang here are nuts, but in a good way.

When there is a contest for a PC here at HotHardware, it's usually comprised of parts that an enthusiast would buy for himself.

It will have many high end parts that perform great too. They really know what works, and they include it in their prize rigs.

Also, whenever Marco is the one building it, the cable management and attention to detail is top notch.

One can't help but admire these builds,........
