Just a reminder here folks -- Our contest ends MONDAY, 6/2 and we will announce the winner on Tuesday 6/3!  Good luck! 

In conjunction with our good friends at Diamond Multimedia and Smooth Creations, we’ve got one patriotic rig to give away this month!  This time around, you could win a full AMD Phenom X4 9750-based system, complete with dual Diamond Multimedia Radeon HD 3850 512MB graphics cards running in a CrossFire configuration, and an awesome, custom painted Smooth Creations case emblazoned with the good ol' Stars and Bars!  And two runners up will also win AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ processors.

As you can see, this machine is definitely a head turner, and it could be all yours!  As we've done with previous sweepstakes, we’ll be giving away this rig away to a randomly selected contributor to our on-line forum and discussion systems, but this time there's a twist (see below). The complete break-down of components in the system includes:
 

 

Processor: AMD Phenom X4 9750

Graphics: Diamond Radeon HD 3850 512MB (2)

Case: Smooth Creations CM Cosmos 100

PSU: Silverstone 850 Watt

Memory: 4GB G-Skill DDR2 Memory

Motherboard: Abit AX-78

Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar 500GB

Optical Drive: Lite-On DVD-R / RW

Miscellaneous: Zalman Cooling, Windows XP


To be entered into the sweepstakes, you’ve got to be a registered, active member of our forum and a resident of the United States. If you’re not already a member, you can sign up quickly and easily (and for free), right here.

From this point forward, we’ll be monitoring discussions on the site and will be randomly selecting a winner based on community involvement and contribution. You can also increase your chances of winning by signing up for our HotHardware RSS News Alerts.  Finally, to coincide with the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, we're going to give extra credit to anyone who makes a charitable contribution to the Disabled American Veterans Fund.  Make a donation - of any size - and forward a copy of your receipt to this e-mail address for another chance to win.  Donations are NOT a requirement to win, but with Memorial Day coming up we thought this was a good opportunity to give something back to the military.  We here at HotHardware will be making a contribution to the DAV fund as well.  The winner of the rig and runners up will be announced Monday, June 2.

This is a great chance for to you to win a custom, powerful new system and to help out the many men and women who have selflessly served in the U.S. military. Now go make some new friends in the forum and get in the running!  Good Luck!

another great give away. very patriotic!  also nice to see an added bonus for donations. my friend got sent off to boot camp (marines) just last month. this is a great computer, but then again what else do you expect from hh and smooth creations :-). this reminds me alot of this laptop http://www.smoothcreatio.../gallery.asp?specific=17 :-) this definantly is another show stoper.

good luck every one.

also, i think this is the shortest contest so far (under a month)

This is just one more reminder of why I love this place.  And kudos to the kind folks at Diamond and Smooth Creations for once again giving away a high performance system.  I'm such a fanboy of all AMD system too, so I'm glad to see that.[:)]

The American flag case is a really nice idea.  It's actually rather touching.  That's a case no one in our country cannot be impressed by it.  I've gone ahead and made a small donation.  Really good idea there guys.  I usually don't think of Disabled Veterans, but it's a good wake up call to look above yourself and do something good for people who truly deserve it.[Y]

Good luck all!

 I must say you guys again impressed me. As a veteran myself, i really get excited to see those who remember our military men and women. I am not a disabled veteran but I am still gratefull for HH push for the disbaled veterans and their contribution as well. This was not something I was expecting and it only furthers my deep respect that I have for the guys running the show here. I really can't put into words how awesome this is.


Oh and the giveaway of course is top notch yet again. Thanks HH and smooth creations.
