    lol... i guess you could say that.

    but still... you know what i mean.

    people will complain about winning something just because it took a month to get to their house.

    just be happy you had the chance to win something.

    after all, no one has to do these giveaways.

    I'm happy that you can take part in this without registration. Most giveaways seems to be register here, do this stuff and after you have promoted us enough you might get something in back.

    Although not forcing to register makes my chances muuuch smaller I rather have it this way, as I won't register to some forum I don't use just to fill up post count, in the hopes of winning something.

    ---

    About winning. Once won from AsRock competition AM2 slot in board for their S939 motherboard. Now the kicker was you needed serial from motherboard to join, which I had, but I had sold the motherboard away before I won :D So that card sat on my self few years, until a friend of mine happened to mention that he had the same motherboard that could use it.

    Sold it to him for a tenner and he got an AM2 processor + DDR2 that now sit on a regular AM2 motherboard. Allowed him a cheap move to dual core time, so the win was eventually useful :)

    Giveaways & competitions are good :toast:

    agreed. I've always had the worst luck (I mean it's REALLY bad) so I've never really won anything.

    good luck to everyone. I hope we get at least one active forum poster for a winner! :toast:

    Hehee, doubt my luck is so much better, I've just entered a lot of competitions :D My grandmother used to enter me and other family members to competitions in the postcard times and "I" won couple times from those. With teh Interwebs taking part came easier and cheaper (and not having to :p stamps) used to take part on lot of competitions. But times have changed and now there is more 'advertise us on facebook & twitter' -stuff that I don't do -> less competitions -> worse luck.

    Also hoping it'll hit some active member, maybe it's Black Haru :)

    The trick to winning is not losing. Practice.

    my poor luck extends far beyond competitions... but a guy's gotta catch a break sometime right?

    I would like to see a follow up review from a winner; not just of what they won, but of how Asus handles the whole process.

    one entry per PC, for the whole contest.

    that said, if you spam the same PC with minor changes, they will catch on and remove those entries.
