    Voted yes - mostly to save you the out-of-pocket, all predicated on your ability to maintain impartiality. I will say, reading the NDA had my Spider-sense tingling a bit on that front, especially as Section 2 (shall not disclose confidential information without prior written approval) relates...

    SeaSonic M12II Power Supply Lucky Draw

    Have yet to try a Seasonic product, if we're honest. Reviews are always great, so I would love the chance, just haven't gotten there yet.

    Enermax Hoplite ST Lucky Draw

    Have to go with their PSUs. Have used half a dozen or more over the years, all have been bulletproof (not literally - haven't tried that).

    5.25 Bay SSD Cage

    If you want to reserve some space, something like this 4 2.5" to 1 5.25" could be useful -

    [H]ardOCP & ASUS GeForce GTX 660Ti DirectCU II Giveaway

    Mostly I need to upgrade from my like 5 year old hardware. Beyond that, I want a powerful solution with a legit cooling system so I don't have to go deaf cranking speakers or headphones to drown out some banshee fan attached to a lesser cooler.

    Ikea desk gallery

    Pondered doing something very similar with the Lagan countertop. Where did you find it though? Everywhere I've looked online shows sold out in store, and paying what they want to ship a block of that is insane (wish they did ship-to-store).

    Antec Case & PSU Combo Lucky Draw!!!!!

    Been in this game for more than a few years now, and what I like about Antec is that their products always deliver quality at a reasonable price. I've used their cases, PSUs, fans, and some other bits, and everything worked out of the box until I retired it for newer gear. Always worked...

    Can I splice 3.5mm cables?

    No need to splice, just get an adapter. Rat Shack has them too, for a bit more money.

    Help identifying this case

    I have a neon green one with a system still running in it... :D

    Ikea desk gallery

    I had originally planned on doing something similar, but using the Lagan countertop instead of Numerar, however, before I had the space in my house (currently in the middle of living in it while gutting it), it looks like they discontinued it. I might end up at Numerar yet.

    Aside from the clutter, I don't know if I could love that any more, Matrix.

    XFX Black Edition PSU Drawing!

    I love that green fan - it is really UFO-like, and would look really sweet in my green build.

    XFX Radeon HD 6990 Drawing!

    I like the performance these put out, which is well beyond what my old (current) gear is giving me.

    3 Enermax SpineRex Chassis Up for Grabs

    My favorite part is the cutouts on the motherboard tray for cable routing - so simple to do, at least I'd think, but far too many cases still don't implement things like this for effective and simple cable management.

    Corsair Vengeance™ 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit Drawing

    Their products have never failed me, only seen one die, and they took care of it ASAFP - that's a winning formula to me.

    iPad Screen Strength Test

    The bending is really cool - that being said, I was most excited when I heard Reel Big Fish as the background music, excellent.

    Corsair Vengeance RAM Giveaway! 5 12GB Kits!

    Why does Corsair RAM kick ass? Look at that stuff! It looks far scarier than things I've seen brought to knife fights!

    The original Half Life and the original Wolfenstein...I logged so many hours on that as a kid I think it imprinted swastikas into my dreams.

    Corsair HS1 Gaming Headset Give-Away - 5 Sets Again!!!

    Rocking some generic over-the-ear cans that are at least a decade old and only cost like 10 dollars then - they generally suck and are literally held together on the one side with some JB Weld and electrical tape, but they are working for least as well as they ever did, which is to say...

    Gigabyte Holiday [H] Give-Away!!!

    I want to build a new computer, but the wife is assuring me that we can't do it on the budget we have - this would go a really long way to making that work...if not ensure it.

    Galaxy 4th Week of Christmas Give-Aways!

    Scott. True story: I was expected to be a girl at birth. When I popped out a boy, they didn't have a name ready. Picked a first name, couldn't come up with a middle name. My dad went to the bathroom (where apparently all great thinking is done), looked at the TP dispenser - BAM - middle name.

    Galaxy 2nd Week of Christmas Give-Aways!

    Give me HDMI out with audio and enough power to play the latest games at respectable frame rates (don't even need to max out AA or AF) and I'm good.

    Seasonic X-560 Give-Away! 3 PSUs!

    I look for high efficiency, stable voltages, and high quality components/construction, because I don't want the thing to crap out on me (and take my other hardware with it) in a year or two.

    Corsair HS1 Gaming Headset Give-Away - 5 Sets!!!

    Worst reason ever, but sadly true. I got married Memorial Day weekend, moved into a house that we've had to do a complete gut and restore on (we're living in the mess). My computer is set up on a small corner table, and basically, I just want to be able to play games occasionally while being...

    Google Chrome Beta

    Thus far, I really don't mind Chrome - only thing is, Adblock Plus on Firefox really has spoiled me, I can't believe all the flash ads I'm seeing on some pages that I've never seen before.

    WTB: Cheap PC133

    Actually, this was easier than figuring out how to lock the thread and start a new one. New situation, and since these replies were to the months old (non-edited) original, I was putting a bump out there to see if anyone had new offers. The original post was edited last night with the new...

    Newegg / [H]ardOCP AMD Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition Drawing

    1. Given Eclipse and your overclocks (4 and 3.5ghz respectively) - I'd use it as the basis for a new rig - pick up one of those Cosmos cases, a TEC with water cooling loop, and aim for the sky. Once stable - Fold for Team 33 and occasionally play a game or two (would hate to kill the science...

    ErgoHuman Chair $509 shipped.

    As it goes, coming from a user, let me detail a few things. First, the material debate - I prefer the mesh, not just because it looks cool, but because I'm always very warm, and the mesh gives you quite a bit more breathing than a standard chair. As for those wondering if this chair is worth...
