The point where you knew you did something wrong was when you did it on Facebook.

BTW it isn't clear is this available to those of us who don't actually live in America?

Offer void where prohibited.


So check with your local laws. I know some places in Canada you can't win more then a certain amount if some conditions aren't met.

Honestly, I have no idea what you're talking about.

The issue is that CCP already ran this contest through FB, but now they're forgetting that one even happened and starting a new one? That's inane.

Unless they already gave the first computer out and I missed the memo?

hardly worth 3,000 USD tbh. Im actually disappointed that my machine I built for 2000 USD can outperform this one any day of the week.

Yes, it's that easy to enter. Seems the PSU is not overbuilt at all, but should handle the load. And if you built a system for 2k that outperforms it, good for you. Yours wasn't FREE, now was it? A FREE system that will kill when running Eve is a winbutton in my book. <entered>

so i just priced out the machine in the OP...it comes in WELL under 3 grand...i'm sorry CCP, I know a free PC is a free PC, but this machine isnt even CLOSE to the estimated price you're posting.

Total price of all listed items is ~1800 through newegg and tiger direct.

First post says OCZ Vertex 3 SSD and Samsung F3 HDD while linked page saya Intel SSD and Western Digital Cavair Black HDD.
Not really important but though I should point it out.

As for performance the only thing you could really upgrade to get a noticeable performance boost is the graphic cards.
Then it comes to price custom made computers like this are always more expensive then building it your self. Putting the system together at the maingear site to specs provided I came out at $2,924-3,051 depending on what exact harddrive and SSD where selected.

Edit: Missed to add 2 extras raising the total about $150.

That last line is your problem...this isn't a build-it-yourself PC, it's from a boutique game machine maker. Not sure how you think your little experiment proves anything...it's apples and pineapples.

um im sorry, whats the difference? The price of the parts is what the value should be based on, not what the "boutique" name is worth...

Well Im going to go out on a limb and hope that CCP Wrangler's comment from the thread pertaining to the first failed attempt with this giveaway draw earlier this month, apply to this 2nd attempt at the giveaway aswell.

Originally by: CCP Wrangler
This giveaway is open to anyone in the world. It is shipped from the US though and while shipping will be handled you may have to pay things such as import tax, additional handling fees and any other form of taxes or fees that apply where you live.
