Right guys and gals, if we where to do a give away, how would anyone like to suggest we do it? Do we make sure we have a limited requirement for say, time served, points accrued? Just wondering what we could possibly do to help this thread move along and whilst I understand it's difficult with certain things at the moment, if there's anything I can do, I'd like to make this happen.

Wondered about something like -

1st place full rig or something close to
2nd place CPU motherboard or RAM or possibly all of them?
3rd place some form of a cash price maybe? I dunno...
4th/5th Possibly some Steam credit or something??

What do people think?? :) Very interested to hear what others would like to see happen for this giveaway :)
I would leave entry to 10+post member's and that's all, inspire people to get involved.
Love it Phil.

Another thing that should be required is the person needs to be an active folder or cruncher for TPU. Otherwise you end up with people that just flood into the forums, get the required amount of posts and then they are never seen again.

I think I'd make it more like a minimum of 50 posts.

I'd suggest to be fair, make it a global contest but delivery costs to be born by the winner if outside of the U.S.
This has precedent in the past when Norton was in the Captain's chair.

Well guys, why don't we do something like this -

Member has to be active for at least a year, minimum of a 100 posts, has to contribute to WCG/FAH or Rosetta for the team?

I think for the moment we can make this US only really. I don't know of many or any UK crunchers to be honest, if there are some around, maybe we could do a small give away for Steam or cash prize or something :) What does anyone think?

If there's a few of us over here @the54thvoid we might be able to do a give away here if we'd like to arrange it with the guys/gals in the UK? What do you think?
So its a folding give away only? Not sure I understand this
I was checking with everyone about it being for member who contribute to the WCG team, FAH team or the Rosetta team :) All the ones I basically update for the stats every day :)

I'm not against the idea of having to contribute to WCG/FAH, per se, but there are folks out there on the forums that are active that don't fold/crunch and it would be kind of a shame to exclude the with that requirement.....

I've had people over the past 18 months that have had hard times asking about spare hardware because they've been out of work or had to take extended leave from work to take care of sick family members and lack the funds to replace broken stuff such as headsets, RAM, mouse and such. I've only been able to help a couple of people that reached out my way. I guess my point is, I'd hate to see a group of folks excluded simply because they don't partake in folding/crunching. Just my two cents.

Right guys and gals, if we where to do a give away, how would anyone like to suggest we do it? Do we make sure we have a limited requirement for say, time served, points accrued? Just wondering what we could possibly do to help this thread move along and whilst I understand it's difficult with certain things at the moment, if there's anything I can do, I'd like to make this happen.

What do people think?? :) Very interested to hear what others would like to see happen for this giveaway :)

Other times during giveaways folks have offered up games (key codes) and other peripheral devices that have been given out as runner up prizes and others even offered to help pitch in with $ to help cover costs of shipping.

plus I still have the retro gaming system consisting of the following-

CPU- AMD X4 940
Heatsink- Zalman 9500
MB- AsRock 780 SLI MB
RAM- 4 GB DDR2 800 (I think, would need to check)
GPU- GTX 280 SLI (one GTX 285 flashed to 280 BIOs, one GTX 280)
PSU- CM Silent ProM 1000 watt
Soundcard- ASUS Xonar DG
Case- Lian Li V1000 plus B
no HD included


Lastly, it would be nice if @BarbaricSoul had enough interest so he could piece together the retro gaming PC as a runner up system for anyone interested. Looks like the only thing needed would be a HDD to round the system out.

Appreciate the reply which is why I asked the question and opinions of others :) My word is soooooooo NOT the last say in what goes on :laugh: I'd like to make people happy, feel good and more so, do something good wherever I can :)

I think we can do all of that as well, I don't see any issue with it at all, so thank you for the input and suggestion :)

What counts as retro these days? That I might be able to mostly assemble. Except for case. Don't have any of those that I'd wish to curse anyone with.

I'd think it would fall into a XP build - hardware that's ideal for XP. A system folks could run older games off of without issue.

I figured all the old hardware I was sitting on would be kind of a monster XP gaming rig. It would run Crysis very well (as a system could back in the day when Crysis came out). So, 3 years back @Norton was still kind of popping in and out of the forums and was trying to get another giveaway going in here, but I suppose personal life things didn't line up for him and it never took off. The idea then was to do a main PC giveaway and with the old hardware I had just sitting there was an idea to do a retro gaming build as well. I don't have the space in my place to build a PC - I have to take over the living room/dinning room area whenever I have to do something with just my own computer - so @BarbaricSoul offered to handle the build. I sent all the hardware to him (see list below), but since the last giveaway never got going he's just been sitting on the parts.

I know some people like the idea of having a system that could easily run older games. I personally have older games on physical media that I can still play. A couple of them have no work around to get functional on Windows 10, but they were able to be played on Windows 7 with some finagling of settings. Otherwise these games ran without issues on Vista and XP. Anyway, that was the idea. Some people showed interest in an older gaming system to run older games on, so that was whole plan. One main giveaway PC for more current hardware and the retro gaming PC.

Here's the hardware that @BarbaricSoul is still sitting on that I used to use for gaming back in the XP/Vista days:
CPU- AMD X4 940
Heatsink- Zalman 9500
MB- AsRock 780 SLI MB
RAM- 4 GB DDR2 800 (I think, would need to check)
GPU- GTX 280 SLI (one GTX 285 flashed to 280 BIOs, one GTX 280)
PSU- CM Silent ProM 1000 watt
Soundcard- ASUS Xonar DG
Case- Lian Li V1000 plus B

I have to strongly disagree with you regarding the WCG/FAH contribution requirement. I think WCG/FAH participation is part of the soul of the original project. I think we should keep as much of that intact as possible.

Hell, I think you guys are right. Just the M.2 slot. Thanks.

Edited that post to reflect that.
You know... i gotta look into my dads 4770k system, it's got an m.2 slot i always thought was NVME but now i'm unsure.

I recall thinking it was 2x 3.0 NVME, but i has doubts now

That's very generous, brother. If I wasn't doing a local "pay it forward" build locally, I'd match your donation. However, I'll be contributing some things to this great cause.

Screw it. I've changed my mind. We can all do better. I'm going to match Bogmali's donation of a complete rig. Specs coming over the next couple of days. I do know it will be Ryzen apu based. Anyone else want to match or raise? ;)
