    Awesome contest. Atleast I can game again if I win one of these beauties. I am fed up of my 865 without any graphics card and 40GB HDD.

  • Julie May 9, 2008, 9:03 am

    Good luck guys :o)

    Just a hint: I’m looking for entries that will get the most attention from people. The whole idea is to get lots of new people to see my URL and visit the site. :o)
