Thanks for the contest, pretty cool idea. Hope someone who deserves the parts wins them, really all I'd really *want* not *need* would be a more efficient CPU/Motherboard (like a 2600K/3770K) or a slightly bigger and higher resolution monitor. Everything else I'm 100% happy with

Howdy everyone. I lurk virtually everywhere I go, but since this is such an awesome idea for a contest, I had to post.


I just recently threw out a GA-H55N-USB3 motherboard that was giving me random shutdowns (some of you may be familiar) and upgraded from an LGA-1156 Core i3-540 (which was just fine and still works)... so these are my current system specs as of my visit to MicroCenter 2 days ago:


Processor ...: Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.7GHz - 4.8GHz

Motherboard ...: ASRock Z77E-ITX

RAM ...: 2 x 2GB of DDR3-1600 @ 6-8-6-24

GPU ...: ASUS "DirectCU" NVIDIA GTX 460 1GB

Storage 1 ...: SanDisk SATA II 120GB SSD

Storage 2 ...: Seagate SATA II 1TB Magnetic HDD

CPU Cooler ...: Thermalright AXP-140 CPU Cooler

PSU ...: Silverstone 600W PSU (included with SG07 chassis)

Display ...: Single Acer 21" LED-LCD 1920x1080 @ 60Hz

Speakers ...: Logitech Z506 5.1 Speakers

Headset ...: Plantronics GameCom 780


Country ...: USA


Again, awesome idea for a contest, much appreciated whether or not I'm selected,



...and blah, looks like tab stops don't show up in the post.

Hopefully that keyboard description doesn't count as 'dumbing down your components', but it's the honest truth. I think everything's pretty solid about my build (that's what I was going for), the keyboard's just getting a little long in the tooth.


Thanks for another awesome contest. :cheers:
