    I guess I will have to go for second place price?

    *EDIT*

    My intent to participate in this thread is to crunch for my fellow team in a attempt to cure any deadly disease that plague this world. Winning one of these prizes will add an extra cruncher to help our team prosper to someday curing all forms of illness :)

    Rules updated:
    • Eligible winning member cannot hold a Top 20 position on the TechPowerUp! WCG Team prior to contest.

    Whilst the intention is to recruit new members, our current crunchers who do their part day in and day out deserve a chance too.

    Credit to 4x4n for the suggestion and Chicken Patty for always looking out for the team :toast:

    Maybe I'll have a chance. Maybe I won't forget to switch WCG back on when I have to pause it sometimes -_-

    I'm down with this. Not sure if I'll be able to pull it off, but I can try. I should be able to get at least enough points for prize #2....

    If I win one of the rigs I plan to give it to my Dad for him to use, and since he doesn't use PC's much, it'll mostly sit there and crunch. :D

    Well, I'm back to crunching after a couple months hiatus, so I suppose I will enter my name into the metaphorical hat.
