HotHardware's "Dads and Grads" Gaming Rig Give-Away!

It's that time again folks! To commemorate Father's Day and to congratulate all of you that are graduating this season, in conjunction with our friends at AMD, Thermaltake, and Kingston, we have assembled yet another <HOT> rig to give away! We're announcing a new give-away in which you could win a full AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition based system, complete with a pair of Radeon HD 6870 graphics cards, some super-fast Kingston DDR3 RAM, a Kingston SSD, and a slick Thermaltake Level 10 GT chassis. With that kind of power at the heart of this rig, in such a wild case, this machine will definitely be a head turner! And it could be all yours!
