    I will also forfeit my prize (Windows 7 Pro key). I have access to my father's Action Pack volume licenses so I feel it would be better given to someone else. Thanks for the contest. :)

    Let me know when there's a winner for the headset. It may not be the greatest headset, but it's certainly comfy and looking for a nice new home to snuggle in :)

    Praise be to Norton

    The chappy (Bow) that won the Powercolor LCS HD7970 has gracefully decided to not take ownership, as he feels someone else would benefit more from it. So kudos to Bow for not just taking it and selling it on :toast:

    As it's my card to give away I have decided that the guy who tirelessly keeps us all up to date and entertains with pie graphs and pretty pictures should receive some real world praise. So I've decided to donate the graphics card to Norton for his unashamedly excessive enthusiasm for crunching.

    Well done Norton, everybody here owes you :toast: :rockout: :D
    t_ski, xvi, [Ion] and 13 others say thanks.
