    Also, besides the Windows 7 key (Pro) that I have I also can supply a 500 gig Seagate drive.

    Also, about a year ago, I won a Zalman MS800 tower case in a WCG challenge that was donated by our own awesome SneekyPeet! It is in the full retail box. If it is needed I will surely donate it as well.

    I will PM Norton the info on this.

    I am also in contact with a local computer shop owner; a friend of mine, to see if he can spare another Win 7 Pro key and/or some other parts.

    Looks like I'm late to the party to donate parts for the USA rig, but I'd be glad to provide some funds. Tell me what 's needed.

    How many slots do we have? I can swing at least 8 GB of Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz @ 9-9-9-24. If we've got a bit longer I can supply all 4 matched sticks.

    4 slots

    This is the board going in the computer for anyone asking- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157198

    Time wise, I honestly don't know. I guess that is up to RCoon and Norton.

    Once the HD from @t_ski gets here, I'm going to assemble the system using one of the sticks of RAM from my 2600k system and get it up and running for this little event we have going on. I'll add the SSDs from @bogmali and whatever RAM is donated when those items arrive.

    I'm assuming that the quoted RAM would be acceptable then? By a bit of time I mean Tuesday the 17th. I can move some things around, and free up all four 4 GB sticks by then.

    Shoot me a PM with where it's going.

    Wish I could do more. Kreij's memory is worth honoring, and kicking Cancer's a$$ is always worth it.
