Don't count me into this one, because I happened to be a lucky winner of a system last year. I want to give others a chance to compete in this one. So good luck guys, and may one lucky winner win that beauty!
Yep, I have won several giveaways in the past too. I first started in I think 2005, and I went crazy on joining forums and starting to become part of the community. Eventually it payed off since I won several giveaways. I personally feel that creative giveaways that require you to do something are more fun than just giveaways that require 5 posts, because you can show off your skills, but either way, just so you know, these giveaways are legit, and well worth entering. I won a system here over a year ago. I still use it as our main HTPC. Thanks HotHardware once again!
For me it's not a problem, I have a Core i7 system however i overclock it to 3.8Ghz which is a way faster than any Dual-Core on the market, so games won't show performance decrease, however this is how I think about it. Even though all the guys are right with their comment, I can see that in the future there will be more and more games that will take advantage of more than just 2 cores. There are a few out already, but I don't think they will stop there. They will continue making newer and better games that will take advantage of many cores. These are my thoughs. If money is the consern then Dual-Core overclocked on good air cooling or a faster Dual-Core will do the job for you.
Congrats Dude, it's nice seeing HotHardware members win! :)
