Wow, I actually never win anything though I enter as many as I come across.

I found this contest on my facebook page so I thought I would try to fulfill the requirements by posting here.

I am working with a HAFX case, an I7 950, an MSI 560 TI Hawk, 24 gigs of RAM and a Samsung 830 256 gig SSD and 10 2TB Seagate drives for storage.

I like storage ☺

Actually the storage is almost used up so I am moving files to my back up puter.

Once I replace all the 2TB drives with 4TB drives I should be ok for a while.

No sense in having a full tower if you aren't going to fill it up!!!

As for the RAM, more is never enough ;o)

Forgot to mention the mobo is an Asus Sabertooth X58 so my system is by no means horrible, but it is pretty out of date.

I originally bought two of the 560 TI Hawks to run in SLI but the slots on the mobo are too close together and they wouldn't fit.

Just one more reason for an upgrade.

Hey manduh! How goes it?

I just broke down and bought an NAS and four 4TB Seagate drives.

Can't wait to get it delivered and set it up.

C'mon Monday!

I'd love to get a NAS but for me, I can only afford a drive now and then so I just slowly build up.

Someday I hope to also have a NAS setup like you are getting.

That's going to have to wait a while as work is pretty slow for Carpenters right now.........

We plan to scan a whole lot of pictures into a database for our family. The NAS was wanted for a long time, but haven't had the money to get it until now. Newegg had a sale on the 4TB drives and it wasn't much more than 3TB drives, so we got them.

As for winning the system, I'd love to, but I have had too much going on in my life to post enough to be considered.
