Um, I have liked those pages a LOOOOONG time ago.

Do I have to Unlike and Like them again to participate, or does it count if I have already Liked them?

Fail #2: if you're going to run Windows on this rig, it deserves Ultimate 64-bit.

Depending on what country you live in you may have to pay import tax and any additional fees or taxes that applies in your country.


Fail #3: that's just weak for those outside the US, kick in an additional $500 cash that can cover these things.

That laser etching totally rocks, though. Is this a one-of-a-kind or can we send side panels to MAINGEAR for them to replicate this (or similar to it)?

UPDATE:

Yeah, complete and utter facepalm. We will have to take down this offer until we iron out some details on how best to properly run such a sweepstakes.

Can you blame us? We got a little too excited about it.. and didn't quite dot all our Is and cross our Ts. Will be back with you shortly.

You can blame the tease on me.




Damn, I just created 10 fake facebook accounts aswell :(

I can definitely understand that some people don't want to leave that kind of footprint on the internet, and that is their right of course. But you have to have a Facebook account to be part of this giveaway. Smile


Make a facebook account. Like the pages, when the event is over, Unlike the pages and delete account.

Its not that hard. Sure you'll be on the internets for a little bit.



If only it worked that way. Make an account, google indexes the page, you "delete" account = google still has your page and so does facebook since you don't really think they'd delete all that precious data they could sell to anyone who wants it?


You can set Facebook to remove your name off of search engines. If it is a new account, you would not be on it. It takes a day for any account/website to me indexed on Google. Sure you name will be listed if you comment on a page or liked. but your information wont be displayed if a person clicks on the link and dives into your profile.

here, type this in into Google. "Luke Solis CCP" you'll notice that my name will pop up on CCP's page. but you cant click on it because of my privacy settings. You cant be viewed if you don't want to be viewed. you just have to be smart about it and CHANGE your settings.

(Yes that is my name. And if you just type my name. you get some other random person that was stupid and didn't set his settings.)

Pal I'm running Ultimate 64 on this rig and Home Premium 64-bit on the others. As far as I can tell the only difference is the languages. Maybe someone that's software literate could list some of the other differences for me.

If it's anything like the last facebook contest they held, don't bother entering as they won't bother to announce a winner.

Create a starship Finalvote voting ended on 8th January, with no winner announced yet.

Cant you just use Chribba's Dice to give it to one of the Accounts that logged in after the Nullsec Nerf? At least everyone has an even chance then...even those who do not know we have a Forum.

I Liked NVidia anyway, and already had CCP liked. My question is, how are you going to know where to ship? My Private information is.. well... Private on FB.

Without a Facebook account you can't enter.


So you are instructing us to get a Facebook account in order to enter?

I'm sad. It used to be you could send a postcard with info to enter contests.

a 660 watts powersupply for a 2600k and 560 ti Sli setup .. thats brave :D Might Run fine but that powersupply is gonna work its butt off and therefor gett Hot and Noisy .. gettin a Psu that is slightly bigger than what you need makes it so that the psu can take it nice and easy


In case you've not had this pointed out already, the PSU should be more than sufficient for this system for the following reasons:

Full load wattage on the 560 is 140watts> per card
Full load wattage on the processor is ~70watts>
Full load of the rest of the components should amount to no more than approximately 60watts, if that much

140+140+70+60=410

That's using the maximum realistic figures that'll ever be achieved while using the system. You can throw another 20% on there if you're particularly pessimistic in order to reach the total maximum, which is still at ~500watts total.


Anyway, this system would be awesome, as it's practically a doubling up of the performance of my existing computer in virtually all aspects. While I could use the money, instead, I'd not say no to a case like that. Embarassed

Exactly my thoughts. Is this contest going up again soon, or is it just cancelled? I'd very much like that PC, as it would be an awesome birthday present.

So CCP, why haven't you announced the winner? Didn't this end on the 17th? Seems like plenty of time to have announced one already.

I notice you "re-started" the contest and un-stickied this thread. Why?

Guess I'll have to file a petition to get an answer from CCP on this? It's a shame that they'd fool their player base into friending them on FB.
