If I win I am going to sell the 2070 on here, and upgrade to a 2080, and just use Intel HD graphics until I get the money saved up ^^

Yeah this is up to the company giving away the prizes, shipping a whole system across half the globe can be troublesome so I understand why they wanted to avoid it

They are missing out on a big EU/Europe market though

Well, not that I'll ever win anything, such is my luck... However, the time to change my 2600k+HD7950 setup comes closer every day. :)

For me to do a similar build that I feel matches the aesthetics of that build I'd be spending

I didn't see a copy of Windows 10 in that build so that's another $140. I've checked in the past what boutique builders like Digital Storm offer and they have usually been priced a couple hundred dollars over what I could build for myself but for people that don't want to build themselves it's probably an ok deal. They assemble the parts and do the cable management and do any troubleshooting that's necessary and offer a 3 year warranty on labor along with 1 year on parts. I would rather save the couple hundred dollars and build it myself or use that money to upgrade to a better GPU.

Less than $30 for a windows 10 pro key now, no where near $140

Well, some just don't want these "gray area" keys.

Though I've never paid over 10eur for a W10 Pro key.

I've used two of the grey keys now with absolutely no problem. If Microshaft lowered the price to say £50, no one would even pirate windows, and even at the lower price, the profit from it would go up.

So is this merely a matter of shipping or does the participant HAVE to be, officially, a US/CA citizen?
I mean, is it possible for a non US/CA resident to participate and have it shipped to a north American address (e.g. a relative's)?

If I won I would pay for them to ship it. Well worth the cost.

Good luck to the limited target audience for this, pity the company is too cheap to spend on global shipping and only opted for a quick and easy local promo which equates to less than advertising costs.

If you win I'm going to say your name had something to do with it, and scream "corruption!"

...Just kidding.
