    @theoneandonlymrk opting in For the gift 1 and or apu bundle.

    I would put the Apu combo to good use building it into a part built pc to introduce my cousin and more importantly his two young kids to the joys of pc, ill do this anyway given time because he's a skint person ,more so than me, but i wouldn't want his kids to not have the learning opportunities a pc can bring.

    As for the gift it could be nice to have a new ssd , mine died.

    I have been laid up a bit lately with a bad back but there's nothing I love more at any time of year than chilling with friends and family.

    Edit your original entry (if you can)- makes it easier to generate the list for the drawing. If you can't then don't worry about it

    This goes for anyone who has entered and would like to change their entry

    if you can't edit then repost your entry and then add "Updated Entry" somewhere in the post

    I'm in for the USA PC.
    Ryzen is pretty sweet! I'll fold with it for sure!

    Also, I could use that SSD.

    I'm in for the summer PC for my brother-in-law. He's headed off to college with an AMD Phenom II and old 5750 GPU and could use a new machine to start this new chapter in his life.
