Um my friend died of lung cancer , his name was Mario Prestiani . I only came across this thread now. So the only thing I can donate is Original Games. I have Civ 5 or Metro if this helps .
The Components that have been donated are already more than I have . I have some older games that are original like Aliens Colonial Marines . All the best to Cancer sufferers and hope their is a cure soon.
Regards Rob
If you'd like to contribute in other ways, you can always crunch for WCG. Team TPU is the best of course ;)

Found this little tidbit from the man himself:
Bah ... The members on TPU are the best, most helpful people I've ever met on the internet.
They are biased, judgemental, trolling asshats who toss that to the side when someone really needs help, and they are always there when you need them.
I just want to give something back to the community of worthless bastards who make dealing with computer problems a lot less frustrating and who always pitch in when someone has a problem with either software or hardware.

I said that in the kindest way possible, and that's why I am proud to call TPU "home". :toast:
We miss you Dean but your spirit is still here!

Wow guys, this is a truly insane giveaway. Not only have all the generous people here donated an incredible PC (that's seriously better than many, or even most others on this forum) but even more people have donated enough to nearly have a whole PC built again! Thank you all for this incredible holiday giveaway, I think we've given last year's a run for it's money. ;)
I always feel awkward turning these thanks posts into an entry, as I feel it takes away from the thankfulness to just say "gimme" but I suppose I'll enter eventually so may as well do it in this post. :oops:

@bubbleawsome
In for The Holiday PC for myself. (kinda) My family has too many people in it for one PC to be optimal so I'll probably keep The Holiday PC for myself and designate my current PC to office duty. I'd move my current 280x for cf though. :laugh: Both would stay crunchers for sure

Also in for;
MSI Z97/Pentium G3258 mb/cpu combo and cooler as another cruncher to add
Mionix Castor gaming mouse as I've got a tiny m215 logitech and rather large hands :ohwell:

Thank you to all of you again, it's amazing to see the turnout every year

@Liquid Cool

I'd like to opt-in for the 2015 Holiday PC. This would be for myself. Simply put, I've never had new equipment like this. I'd also like to start crunching again, this would enable me to do so. The other holiday gifts, I'd prefer to leave those for who would need them more than I.

Holiday story?

It was about four years ago. I was broke, very ill, and starving...the cupboards we're bare and the refrigerator wasn't looking much better. I woke up early for some reason only to find that we had received a foot of snow overnight and essentially everything Christmas was cancelled.

I grabbed a cup of coffee, sat down at my computer to check my e-mail and ding....my brother in law had sent me a VERY large Newegg gift card. I didn't even have time to get over the shock before I heard snowblower's in my driveway...it was a couple of family members/friends that came over not to dig me out, but so they could get in. They essentially brought a ton of food and showered me with gift cards to about every store I shopped at. It was a real turning point in my life and probably the best Christmas I've ever had.

I'll never forget it.

Thanks for the chance at entering this contest.

Best Regards,
Liquid Cool

I truly have no idea what happened on that day and many others that I've had like that over the last 6 years, but somebody upstairs HAS to be looking out for me or I'd be dead a LONG time ago.

Best,

Fantastic giveaway. Thanks everyone who donated for this!

@stevorob
In for the PC - This would be for me or for the wife. One of the old rigs would then be relegated to full time crunching for TPU. The new PC would definitely be crunching part time as well.

To be quite honest, I don't really have any memorable holidays that stick out. I will say that it is tradition for me to cook a huge breakfast (pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, etc etc) on Christmas morning for the family and the inlaws. I do look forward to it, and this year, will be in my new house, so maybe this first Christmas here will be a memorable one in the future.

Also in for
Gift 1- Thermaltake Suppressor F31 Mid-Tower PC case donated by sneekypeet
Gift 4- MSI Z97/Pentium G3258 mb/cpu combo donated by RealNeilincludes bequiet! PURE ROCK cooler donated by jboydgolfer

Because, who doesn't want more gear for more rigs. :)

Opting in for myself (Grand Prize, + Prize 1), a more modern system would be spiffy. The old machine would be able to crunch a bit more, all my machines crush while idle anyway.

Holiday moments in the past were good, but my son is now 3 and a half and the concept of the world is just starting to come together for him, I think any memory before is going to be beaten by the next couple of years.

I've been incredibly busy these past few weeks and just saw earlier today that all the parts needed have been donated already :eek: I would've loved to donate/contribute to another giveaway/build but it looks as though a wide range of members have come through- probably the strongest turnout I've witnessed to date :toast:
Outstanding work guys, can't wait to see the finished build and the lucky winner.

In case I am not around later- Enjoy the Holidays, TPU!

Not in thankyou
If i had another computer i would have waaaaaaay too many. Such genorosity really is overwhelming..............show me another community like this.........go on.......show me !!!!



i named my last pc "Wendys Nightmare" for a reason. The next one is pencilled in as
" Wendy has started to medicate" and i am NEVER building "Wendy is divorcing me"



This is going to be a memorable holiday for us, the kids are old enough to fly off on their own so they are going to Spain, i dont feel well enough for the journey so, with the eldest being 16 and the youngest 13, we are in for a quiet one.
They will have a great time with my parents.

No booze for me either.
boo hoos !!!!

^^^^^^^
i dont need drink, im hallucinating on the tablets !!!

Do you have a US shipping address that we can send to if you win? See below:
Note- Due to shipping expenses and a limited budget these items are restricted to forum members with a US address to ship to. If the shipping issue changes we will open this giveaway up to more regions.
There is a contest sponsored by XFX that's available worldwide:

Requires a little bit of searching and creative writing

Also, If you crunch or fold for one of TPU's Teams and are online around Christmas eve keep an eye out for something special. @james888 and @TRWOV know what I'm talking about ;)

Thx, @Norton . I have relatives in US, so in case I get lucky, it will go in the box with my other less impressive holiday presents :roll:

Sorry for slacking on WCG this month. My xeon rig is actively used for other stuff, but I still crunch on my phone and Cubietruck :lovetpu:
