This is early I realize that. But I have always liked competition so here goes:

Post what components will make your best G80 rig. In a couple of weeks when G80 arrives this thread needs to be flooded with pics of your rig and a description of the actually components inside of it.

On January 16th we will have a vote for the best rig. The winner will be announced at midnight PST and will be sent a $50 Gift Certificate to NewEgg, Performance-PC's or Frozen CPU according to the winners choice!

Qualifications:

1. Winner must have at least 300 posts on nVNews
2. Winner must have at least 1 GeForce 8800 GTX or 8800 GTS in their rig.

TiKiMaN1 Will Be Providing the Prize!:D

(w/opics)

Mine are in my sig.. 2nd one down, the Conroe. I'll be selling my X2 system once the new one's up and running. Have to pay for those G80's somehow.

All the parts in my sig I already have but I'm waiting on a few things I'm missing [like a mobo / gfx card(s) :p]

I need some prize feedback would a $50 NewEgg gift certificate be more enticing?

I would say yes since most of us probably already have those games :D

Frozen CPU or NewEgg?

Frozen CPU is pricey... I have never ordered from them because I can always find whatever i am looking for cheaper somehwere else.

Newegg is a better idea or just an AMEX gift cheque...

How 'bout Performance-pcs? :) I think I've single-handedly doubled their stock value in the last month. :)

Yeah performance PCs is one of the best sites out there. Their prices are always good and they have a wide variety of stuff.

Awesome idea! I'm planing to get a Kentsfield and the DFI 680i together with two GTX. Maybe I have to go back to watercooling and perhaps I need a better PSU...

Is the 680i worth the wait for single card users? I have no plans to go SLI and donīt plan to get an unlocked CPU. I wanted to purchase a decent i975 board for an E6600 and a single GTX but Iīm not exactly sure if its a good decision.

Sorry for the off-topic question, and I do agree, its a great idea!

Of course I can't win, but expect 2 EVGA 8800 GTX cards in my system right after launch.

I have a brand new Asus P5B Deluxe for sale at a 30$ discount if you're interested. It's in the for sale section here. For a single-VGA solution, it's about the best you can go. Guys are reaching 602FSB with it.

(Sorry, shameless plug for G80 funds. :D )

may I request that this competition be postponed until January 16th? The reason being is that I'm going to build a brand new watercooling rig, and it requires several case modifications which I won't be able to do until I visit my dad's workshop around Christmas.

why would you guys give 50 to the best ...why not give it to the worst, god knows that person could use it more then the person with the best rig.
