In Topic: Official OCC 2018 Christmas Contest

31 December 2018 - 12:33 AM

I just ordered an FX 8350 to upgrade my Phenom II X6, which was what I said as an answer to "What will be your first computer part purchase for 2019?" Ended up as the last computer part purchase for 2018. :) But I'll get it in 2019.

 

Well, turns out I got it in 2018. So I totally failed on that 'first purchase of 2019' prediction. So on the last day of 2018 I got a CPU made in 2011 (the date printed on the CPU; the box says 2015).

Another year, another shattered dream. :)

 

Congratulations to all the winners.

 

I always enjoy entering this competition because it's a great community and having this posted as a thread on the forum makes it nice to follow. Other giveaways are simply send and forget.

 

Also, this competition always makes me think what I want to buy. My next purchase (after the FX 8350 I've already ordered) would probably be a cheap case.

 

And I'd still love an update about Bosco to be posted here.

That's an old PC. Mine was originally from 2009, but went through enough upgrades that it's completely changed. Started with an AM2+ board (Gigabyte 790, IIRC) with Phenom II X3 710, then I upgraded to a Phenom II X6 1090T, then, after the memory slots started failing and I luckily won a DDR3 kit, I upgraded to an AM3+ board in 2013. Now I'll put the FX 8350 in that board.

I look forward to this contest every year. As a stay at home dad of five year old twins, my time for gaming and computer usage has gone down. As a result, my computer has gone without an overhaul for years. This contest gives me a chance at an upgrade without having to justify the expense to the office of budget management (the wife). 

 

As a stay at work dad :) my gaming time has also gone down to near non-existent. But I still try to dabble a little with PC hardware. I just ordered an FX 8350 to upgrade my Phenom II X6, which was what I said as an answer to "What will be your first computer part purchase for 2019?" Ended up as the last computer part purchase for 2018. :) But I'll get it in 2019.
