I would put it in my main pc or my htpc. Most likely my htpc will get it and i will move one of the 285's to the htpc so it can play bf3 then i will throw a XFX 580GTX in the desktop :)

 

desktop:

i7 920 @ 3.8ghz

Gigabyte x58 mobo

6gig Corsair Dominator DDR3

320gig 10K rpm Raptor

1tb WD Cavier Black

2x XFX 285GTX BLACK EDTION's in SLI

Cooler Master HAF 932

 

 

htpc:

AMD 955BE

Asus Mobo

I would have it powering my wife's system because her computer will need some more power when I decide to OC the FX 8 core that will go in it as soon as I have the money.

 

Her Rig as of now.

 

Athlon II x4 (will be changed soonish)

8gb ddr3 1333

1tb hdd

500 watt corsair builders series.

XFX HD 5770 XXX (to be replaced after proc and psu by an XFX 6XXX series.)

I've been looking to upgrade my very old system and If I won the contest, I would integrate the PSU into my current system and upgrade my motherboard to one with crossfire capability and buy another XFX 5770 for crossfire action for upcoming games BF3 and MW3.

If I got a PSU I would put together a system for my kids that are starting to take over my gaming machine. I have my old bones from my i-5 upgrade so what I would power would be:

 

EVGA 750i FTW

Q9300

4 x 1 GB DDR 2 RAM

 

And whatever vidcard and HDD I could scrounge up :)

The 750 would be more than enough to replace my current dying 500 watt, I recently installed a GTX 460 and a new MOBO + ram and it just wont keep up.

This coming shortly after my 550watt blew up and is completely dead.

 

Would be reallly nice considering im already in the market of getting a new power supply :)

 

 

 

 

Mobo- ASUS P5N-D LGA 775

ASUS Gtx 460 1GB

Intel Core-2Duo E4600 OC'd @2.8ghz.

4X OCZ Gold 1GB 800MHZ DDR2

Coolmaxx CXI 500B 500 watt

3X 360 GB SATA drives

4X 120mm Fans 2X80mm

Sony DVD-RW Drive

If I win the PSU it would be put in my main rig

 

CPU: AMD A8-3850 Llano 2.9GHz 4MB L2 Cache Socket FM1 100W Quad-Core Desktop APU

MB: Asus F1A75-V PRO AMD A75 Chipset DDR3 1800 USB3 SATA ATX Retail Motherboard

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) 240-Pin DDR3 Memory Kit

GPU: XFX Radeon HD 4890 1.0 GB DDR5 PCI-E 2.0 Graphics Card

HDD: 1 - 320GB 7200 RPM boot drive

4 - 2TB storage drives

Case: Cooler Master HAF X Full Tower w/ SuperSpeed USB 3.0 w/ Window w/ Black Interior ATX Case

 

Then maybe upgrade the stock CPU/APU fan... this thing is loud >.<
