    Congratulations everyone. I'm never bummed when I don't win because I got used to not winning so often in my youth. :laugh: No, the love needs to be spread around. I still have Norton's old 965 rig from the last contest which might be finding its way to a family member in the near future considering my aunt is still using a computer with Windows XP and DDR memory. :eek:

    Once again, enjoy your new, game, software, and hardware everyone. You earned it! :cool:

    As elated as I am for winning, I'd rather the Razer Orca Headset go to someone else. Feel free to do a redraw on that prize with me removed from the running. I've already got a fairly nice pair of stereo headphones, and 7.1 speakers when I can afford the luxury of volume. Surely someone else would get better use out of it.
