Thanks, Brian. The suspense is killing me, I hope I win! Is the Digital Storm going to be the next one that is given away? It's one of the most beautiful computers I've ever seen.

Yea i agree jacobm it would be perfect to carry to lan events n also as a htpc/gaming rig at the same time as well cause its so compact.

Sorry, but when do we find out who won the last 3? Definitely been over 48 hours, and I'd love to know if I got lucky or if I'm about to head to MicroCenter tomorrow to start my build.
Winning one of these would be unbelievable, since my PSU, CPU and mobo are all in the process of crapping out and I'm broke. (PSU made it over 8 years, so I can't really complain.)

Thomas "Gavin Darklighter" M. aka Fuse.

EDIT: Entirely off topic, but BTW, Cody_Irwin, ask some of those Canadians about their tarriff system and what they do to get some of those products from an American mall into Canada. It's not just the exchange rate that sends them flocking south of the border.
(Just funny to read that, as I have a friend who moved back to Canada recently and has been griping incessantly. I also think it's funny that Canadian residents have to answer a "Time sensitive skill based question with out assistance" if they win one of the ROG rigs. I don't know what little law makes that necessary, but I laughed. What an odd caveat.)

Ah, right, business days. Guess I forgot that part since the drawings were over the weekend and the last two were so fast.

Sure wish I could have won that DigitalStorm system, though. Seriously slick piece of hardware. (Though of course the FragBox is pretty stylish, too.)

Am I the only one who occasionally tuned in to the stream just to watch the security guard walk around? For some reason that was almost as interesting as people-watching the PAX crowd.

That's crazy! Can u imagine " o BTW u won a Pc but u didn't claim it!"

LMAO MORONS. I notice a lot of the same people join every FaceBook giveaway. Always the same people. Crazy. What happened to earning it. If they took some of that effort and applied it to gaming(cheap$$) or modding( not so cheap$$$) or ocing( definitely not cheap$$$$$$$) imagine what they could earn besides a rep as someone who knows what their doing and earn RESPECT!!! That's Priceless!!!

Thanks for the update, Brian.
I can't believe those went un-claimed! I would sacrifice my first born to get my hands on that DS machine; those guys are amazing builders. I'd also take that awesome Dirt 3 rig you guys had set up, if you're trying to decide where to store it. :cool: (Thanks to Anthony for sharing.)

So I'm guessing today we will find out about the Falcon? And also, seriously true computer modders out there and pc gamer's would give their left *** for these computers but we had some guys not claim! That's crazy because I have been watching like a hawk to see who wins.. Well who ever does good for them, I hope its me but if not have good time on those beast..

I cannot speak for anyone but myself but given the choice I would rather build the rig myself. Not to say I would turn down one of these machines if I won. Pre-built systems IMHO are more for gamers who aren't builders/modders.

I actually support this wich sounds good, Asus has the authority to change rules at any given time so since people are not claiming, ROG Forum members who posted in this thread will be put into a raffle for the remaining system for being dedicated asus lovers.

And of course, you already know we are going to be folding on them hehe.

Question for you all.. would this be a good External drive for that system? 60GB is not much on a game rig.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136514

I know it says internal, but I can buy or build a external case for it. Or just stick it in the system.

Kindly refresh our memories of the specs of this baby...maybe in your sig..

Then how are you going to use this machine..for real..how do you do it..
whats open..do you game on a whim..with things open..ect..whats your style..
Your options are limitless...

Then ask what these maniacs suggest...
Your alright G4MER....welcome.c.

I like to tell people, I was a G4MER, when Gaming was uncool. What do I plan to do with this system?

I play many games, RIFT's with my wife, CounterStrike Source with one son, League of Legends with another, and a plethora of games on Steam. Lots of First Person Shooters. I will even use it to Map for CounterStrike GO and Source, ( http://www.snarkpit.net/ ) - has many of my maps... or it did.. I may have to re-upload them. And now I am sure to be able to play Guild Wars 2 when it is out, as well as battlefield 3! WOOT!

Here is a link to some images of one of my CSS Levels,

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c149/MuhnayShot/de_forgottentemple.png

at PAX in 2009 I was introduced to the CASE MOD aspect of computers by a new found friend JOSHUA SNIFFEN. He does incredible work. This year at PAX my friend Bitterfun unveiled a case he did based on a Warmachine in a tabletop game called, Warmachine. He won. So I was doing research and asking lots of questions of both these fine gentlemen on how I can do a case.. and was planning of trying at the next PAX. This case, will give me some insight on how a pro-shop does things, only educating me further.

I am also a Graphic Artist... well am aspiring one. I dabble with photoshop, and would love to use the system to do that as well. Here is a large work I did..

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c149/MuhnayShot/Large%20Worx/planet_redue.png

I also enjoy making forum signatures.. here is one of my better ones...

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c149/MuhnayShot/Signatures/KnightSig2.png

So as you can see, I will use this system to not only game but to create.

Thanks for the compliment, your alright in my book too. ;)

Ya Know what I like best about winning this one, well its in the top 10... Is the fact that the system bares my call sign. ;)

09-20-2011, 12:43 AM
Smok'n............
You can plug just about anything you heart desires into this..
I think Id plan:
8 more Gb of Ram
maybe another gpu
storage?? I use a seagate 1tb 7200--
whats in the budget?
bigger ssd? raptor? (s)?
The graphics are in the ram/gpu...
the game is more drive intensive...

Alas, this is but my humble opinion...The good news..?
The real answers will follow below::: hahahaha..Dont ya just love how they ROG? Sweet.

I personally HATE Seagate, their cheap over rated Hd's that have less years on warranty now, because they break so much. Thats my personal opinion and personally had problems with ever single last harddrive i bought from them.

I have over 10 wd hd's and still all perfect working condition, I personally say go with a western digital caviar black edition HD.

I know it says internal, but I can buy or build a external case for it. Or just stick it in the system.

Those drives are so awesome they impregnate any woman within a 5 meter radius of them whenever they spool up. Luckily humans cannot incubate HDD babies so they just get reabsorbed into the body and no one really notices anything ever happened. Get the drive man!

EDIT:

LOL.. I guess its good that my wife and I are both "FIXED".. but my daughter on the other hand. I would hate to have to beat that drive into submission, and then hog tie it and taser it everyday until it learned its lesson. BAD HARD DRIVE.. no impregnating my daughter. But for that kinda storage at that price.. I got the drive man.. I think it will get here before the rig does. Time has totally slowed down. lol.

I have a 1TB External WD Drive usb 2.0.. and I love it. Thanks People for the advice and pats on the back... I am super stoked, to have won.

Cyrekk
09-20-2011, 07:46 AM
One of my many pet peeves has to be external hard drives. It is pretty well always (with very few exceptions) better to just buy an internal drive and a decent enclosure. The most notable exception in my mind is the WD Passport Elite w\ the dock simply because I can think of some creative applications for it that would otherwise be impractical.

G4MER, I have to ask: When was gaming ever uncool?? Was that before Gamers had their own fantastic Republic to be a part of?

chrsplmr
09-20-2011, 11:18 AM
And the verdict.. see..gamer..these guys are great..
now we both know..what hd is our next one...lol

"western digital caviar black edition HD" ... and no arguments..concensus..love it.

I have no excuse for having the seagate drive... Before I joined this forum...I only trusted me..
and this one was on sale...hahhahaa

Gotta second the 'when' Ckk??? The gamers drove the industry..still do..
they had typewriters for 'data processing'.. we had 5.5's"....with GAMES...hehehe

WolfenStein3d anyone? ... looking at it now..it isnt that far out from what
we see today......just less..
Thats why you see DoomII win95 edition hanging over my desk, waiting for
something to beat it.................

aaa..Have you considered folding in its down time???
Gaming, Folding, Graphics and ROG......... all your missing is the Folding..
(Click FOLDING link above and check it out...just a suggestion..now...do it...hehehe..
Im kidding, but if you dont know about it or the ROG team, please do check it
out and consider it..c.)

Mine was fixed too, (what a cold word) whew..I was thinking..no more diapers..yeah right..the oldest
son made one...and the momma couldnt keep her...ut oh....3 years ago...hehehe
my little angel helper....
My little retirement program....Off to HeadStart....again..
I will be 70, 6months after she grads HS....
X, shoot me now.
(but, I love her).

G4MEr...You do bring back memories....I remember the Compaq Lunch box Computer too...mine is serving as a Boat Anchor....My Mother worked as a Data Center Supervisor for Safeway Foods back in the 70's and I got to go to the office on weekends and help the Tech's maintain the Mainframes run the new Store prices through the Keypunch Machines....it was Loud, Fun and Heavy....what I remember most was when they got a new Drive pack from IBM watching those platters in the water jug sized case spinning and the record heads bouncing....I thought it was amazing! then I got a Commodore 64 and realized that this little toy was more powerful than that big Monster at Safeway.....

I like how chrsplmr has single handedly turned the Republic of Gamers acronym into a verb "ROG" pronounced \'räg\ synonymous with the transitive verb "rock." Except with the connotation to a context of enthusiast computing/gaming particularly centered around ASUS' ROG products.

Here are just a couple pictures of the PC in my home. I built a custom desk just for this PC.. it deserves it. More on that later. Enjoy the pictures.

The New PC, is super quiet, Fast at 3.4GHz, has 8gig of super fast ram. The Graphics are amazing with its nVidia/ASUS GTX 570 card with 4gb of ram. Also has the best of the KILLER nic cards installed as well a high end ASUS Xonar DX sound card. ASUS and iBUYPOWER, built one hell of a machine.
