I'm a student as well, working on my Bachelor's, but because of some red tape I have NO financial aid (even though I, of all people at the school, probably need it most), so winning this rig would be totally awesome.

Thanks for the giveaway, and I look forward to being a part of the discussions here!

Wow; I would have guessed you were older Inspector! Also the the poster who is having student aid issues, I know that feeling to.

There must be some kind of difficulty from the FED, because all my charges for next quarter are just sitting there. This means until something comes through, and as both an adult continuing my education and a disabled (yes I am on a 200% scale (which is how they measure it), 170% deaf, or I hear at a 30% rate in one ear, totally deaf in the other),individual I qualify. However nothing has come through even from Sallie Mae, so something is messed up. I also hear that they are going to be raising cost's across the board in higher education, which very well may leave me and many, many more stalled.

Either way enough about the woe's of the world. On HH in many aspects such as this (not to mention many other contests), which have run on here I applaud the site as well as Dave and Marco for giving us something to wish for, on a regular basis. This is not to even mention one of the best websites/forums on the web, at least to me as well as I am sure many of you. Maybe one day I will win, and this one specifically to me would be a MAJOR win, as well as something I could really use (and with these components for quite some time), for a lot of things school (I go to school 100% over the web), directly as well as many other things!

So am I la_guy I will finish my associates after Finite math next quarter. Well if my student aid stuff comes through, and I am able to take it anyway. Then on to Bachelors studies, Luckily I am gonna be over credit to. So 1 year +1 more quarter I will be done with bachelors and on to masters. What specialty in computer science are you in, I am going for security I think, as it will give me a wider path ahead (it in most cases back applies for any other job within networking, and administration as well as for Security itself)!

Security is a good area to be in. I am more partial to hardware, hey thats why I am here at HotHardware!!! The software side does not really excite me like talking, viewing , studying, hardware. Good Luck with your education. I probably should be in electrical engineering but......

I'm with jujdred with needing a new system but needing it fairly cheap, but I at least have a dual core on my 5+ year old machine that I bought from Cyberpower. I guess he could use a new computer more than me, but I still would like that one up there. Oh and I'm new too so hello all and good luck!
