Hello everybody, as I had mentioned to a few people already, I am doing another annisman hardware giveaway. The first giveaway was an 8800GTS 512, won by Jay2Tall about a month or so ago. Now that Christmas is just a few weeks away I felt I should give away more than just one thing, so that more people had a chance of getting something nice in time for Christmas.

Up for grabs are 3 pieces of hardware, and one game.

The hardware is: 1X Supertalent Ultra Drive Me 32GB Sold State Drive

1X Creative X-FI Fatal1ty Pro Gamer Series Sound Card

4X 1GB Sticks of G. Skill DDR2 800 Ram

Also, I will be giving away a game (On Steam) that is 20$ or less, your choice which game that is.



Here are the rules for obtaining one of these items:

1. You must post in this thread.

2. Only one entry for an item per person, I want there to be 4 seperate winners so choose the one thing that you hope to get.

3. You must meet any specific requirements for the item that you are requesting (more on that in a second).

4. It is recommended (but not necescary) that you post a picture of the computer that you want to upgrade with one of these parts.

5. The winners will be announced here in this thread one week from now, Wed. December 9th. (the date may move slightly up or down a day depending on how many entries there are)

6. I will ship the hardware, and gift the Steam game within 3 days of the announcement. I will pay the shipping charges.
I will only ship to the continental USA, sorry Canada!


Here are some pictures of the items, and the SPECIFIC requirements that go along with them. I took the pictures near our little family Christmas tree for a nice Christmas setting!



This is a Super Talent 32GB Ultra Drive Me SSD, I bought it about 6 months ago and used it as a boot drive for Windows Vista 64bit until it took a crap. I then sent it to Super Talent for RMA, and in the mean time purchased a 120GB OCZ Vertex Drive. I just got the Rma'd 32GB Supertalent drive back in the mail today, so as you can see in the picture it is still in it's factory sealed package. However this drive is not 'new' it is probably a refurbished drive.

Although I used it as a boot drive, and it worked amazingly fast, it is just not big enough (in my opinion) to be a boot drive. But that is up to you what you do with it!

The specific rules to obtain the SSD are:

1. You do not have a high-end hard drive already, such as a Raptor drive or a brand new 7200RPM drive.

2. You tell me what you plan on doing with it if you get it. (boot drive, put a couple favorite games on it, etc.)






The second item is my Creative X-FI Fatal1ty Pro Gamer Sound Card.

Absolutely awesome sound card I have used it for a couple years and it is great. The X-FI Crystalizer feature makes your music sound so much crisper, along with all of it's other features. It also lights up red on the side. Very nice card, however after changing my motherboard to a Gigabyte UD5 I no longer have an open PCI slot to use this in, but maybe you do ?

The specific rules to obtain this item are:

1. You have either onboard sound or you have a very old soundcard such as an original soundblaster.

2. You have an available PCI slot (duh!)

3. Tell me why you would like this card, and whether you use speakers or headphones, also do you watch alot of movies on your PC ?






The last item is a 4GB kit of DDR2 800 G. Skill Ram.

Not very high end ram, but they have heatspreaders and it is 4 Gigs...
Perfect for sprucing up the performance of an old PC with DDR2 Support.

The specific rules for getting the Ram is:

1. You are upgrading a computer that has 1GB or less of ram.

2. You want to build a new computer on the cheap, and these 4GB of ram will be perfect for you...

3. You have some other way of using this ram (maybe 2GB for you, and 2GB for a friend).

Remember, even though the Sound Card and SSD and game are probably nicer than the RAM, there will probably be less entries for the RAM, therefore a better chance to win.



Finally, I am Steam-Gifting one PC game that can be bought for 20$ or less ( and there are pleanty of great titles for that price)

The rules for getting the game are:

1. You tell me what game you would like if you won, and also what are your 3 favorite games of all time ?


If you are looking at this thread, and none of the hardware can help you, or if you have a mad l33t computer already, or you just think that others might benefit more than you. Then this is the offer for you. There is no reason not to at least put your name in to try and get a free game off of steam, so what are you waiting for?


Now, I would just like to say that i am not a rich man, I am a 21 yr old full time student in college, I work about 30 hours a week at Good Guy's Pizza in Buffalo NY. So I would ask that people please not take advantage of all this in any way, and be honest about what's your computer etc. These are just parts that I don't or can't use anymore, and would rather give away than sell for a profit.

Finally I would just like to say Merry Christmas to everyone, and good luck! In my family we believe that giving gifts to others has a much deeper meaning that just 'getting stuff'. We believe it fully symbolizes God's gift to us, his son Jesus Christ who died to help free us from sin and death if we trust in him.

I don't mean to preach, but this is what me and my loved ones hold true during Christmas, good luck, and Merry Christmas!
December 2, 2009 8:53:25 PM

WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!!!



First I would like to say that I would like nothing more than to give everybody in this thread something to take home.

If you did not win something during this giveaway I will assure you that I plan on doing these as often as my wallet will allow me to. Probably, once every few months. (The next giveaway will be another video card, possibly an ATI 4 or 5 series)

The Winner were chosen randomly out of a hat for sake of fairness to all.

Here are the winners:

The Winner of the 4GB DDR2 800 G.Skill Ram is Crazy359





The Winner of the Creative X-FI Fatal1ty Pro Gamer Sound Card is Logitic




Because the original winner of the SSD has not contacted me, I have decided to go through all of the entries for the SSD, and have landed on Overshocked as the new recipiant of the hdd, congrats, and don't forget to contact me via PM.




In the End I decided to give away (2) 20$ Steam games, because there were so many entries:

The Winner of the Steam games are Crosko42 And Tapion817


Thanks to everyone who participated, if you are a winner please PM me here on Tom's so i can get your house address to ship to you, or to get your Steam ID to gift the game.

If for some reason a winner does not get ahold of me in the next 48 hours I will pick a new winner.


Everybody have a wonderful Christmas. :hello: 
December 2, 2009 10:29:27 PM

While I could use the sound card I'm not going to enter. I just wanted to say how wonderful it is to see a 21 year old student taking such a benevolent initiative.

Bravo and Merry Christmas to you, sir.

I could really use the sound card (my headphones pick up electrical and mechanical noise with onboard), but I'm a bit further away than Canada :lol:  Merry Christmas :) 
December 2, 2009 10:45:55 PM

Happy holidays it's nice to see people in the giving mood.

I'm not going to enter well also I would be unable to enter as i already have a sound card (a better one by my opinion) and better ram and just order 2 new seagate 7200.12 hdd's for my windows 7 install which are plenty fast. :D 
December 2, 2009 10:54:37 PM

I'd just like to point out that anybody can (and should) enter to win the free game.
December 2, 2009 10:54:43 PM

Steam Gift

Portal

as i can't get myself to buy it

In that case I'll go for the Steam game Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter!

Favourite games in no particular order:

1) Serious Sam: The First/Second Encounter (combined since they are a two-part game basically).
2) Left 4 Dead (Maybe L4D2 but I haven't played it enough to be sure yet)
3) Descent 3

As you can see, I'm not much of an old gamer, as I haven't really played anything prior to the late 90s.
December 2, 2009 11:07:37 PM

Fair enough. Put me down for the Steam Game.

The Orange Box.
EDITED: Just noticed it is $29.99 on Steam.

I'll change my selection to Mirror's Edge.


That requirement is a tough one:
1. Chrono Trigger
2. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
3. Metroid Prime
December 2, 2009 11:32:56 PM

1. You have either onboard sound or you have a very old soundcard such as an original soundblaster.

2. You have an available PCI slot (duh!)

3. Tell me why you would like this card, and whether you use speakers or headphones, also do you watch alot of movies on your PC ?


I could def use the sound card, ATM i am using onboard audio through my MA790X-UD4P
soon hopefully i will get my pc monitors (M-audio AV40's) and that X-FI Crystalizer would be such a great pair. i watch alot of movies on my pc, and love to game. i recently watched district 9 and it was great! i have some cheap 20 dollar logitechs that dont really it for me... when i game tho i use my Fatal1ty headset (NFS,Borderlands,Quake...)

heres a picture of my new computer that i built a couple months ago for my bday... its a work in progress, i only have a stick (1gb) of ram in there :\ but maybe for christmas i can get more

Hope everyone has a wonderful christmas and gets everything that they ever wanted
and get to spend it with the people they love

I suppose I should have posted a pic. Here is my PC in an old case. It's exactly the same as it is now, I just swapped from this cramped little piece of crap with no place for cable management to something with more breathing space (CM690).



Yes my SSD is still not mounted anywhere, yes my X58 chipset is passively cooled and idling over 70C and yes my video card sticker is still peeling off from the heat. No, I have not cleaned that rear fan in along time. :lol: 
December 2, 2009 11:46:37 PM

I'd like the Steam game please :p  lol.
And either Mass Effect or Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2. Need to decide.Good luck everyone :D .

As for favorite games:
1. Fallout 3
2. Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
3. Halo 2 for Windows :D 
Hopefully I'll win :D 

Merry Christmas to all! (And Hanukkah!)
What a nice idea this all is! :) 
December 2, 2009 11:49:37 PM

I could use more ram... But i don't have any ddr2 rigs ;( ddr3 and ddr :(  anyways merry christmas and nice seeing people give things out in economic downfalls trying to help out others
December 2, 2009 11:51:11 PM

That 520HX just looks so nice,visually, compared to the rest of the stuff in that computer.

As for the game

Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter!
that was a great fps game now in hd!
Based on hours logged how else can i decide!
-StarCraft
-Legend of Zelda: OOT
-Tales of Symphonia

It's in no order as making a ranking would make me go mad!
December 2, 2009 11:59:18 PM

This post is for the: Creative X-FI Fatal1ty Pro Gamer Sound Card.

1. I have a very sad integrated sound card in my Biostar A785GE. You can look up on google the codec used ALC622 Sound and notice it has horrible volume/sound quality.

2. Yes PCI slot is available.


3. I have Logitech X240 speakers (reason I haven't upgraded is no 5.1 surround sound card)... Also I own some Klipsch Image S4 headphones so you can see how serious I am about my audio. I am looking to purchase a Creative Xmod for my laptop's sound card replacement and to use with my MP3. This card will help save me $$ since I won't have to purchase it. Thanks in advance. My next upgrade may be some etymotics HF5s or some Klipsch Custom 3 headphones for my desktop, the image s4 will be for my MP3 once I get a Cowon.

December 3, 2009 1:06:34 AM

I would like to enter for the Steam-Gift please.

I would like the game: Torchlight

My top games of all-time:

Half Life 2 (including episode 1-2)
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Banjo Kazooie

And a Merry Christmas to you too!
December 3, 2009 1:15:18 AM

what an awesome thread, and amazing generosity

/suck up.

that SSD would certainly help me out. as you can see from my sig, my PC is approaching being a true gamers rig. but my 250gb HDD that ive had for a year. well its holding my system back.

my Windows index score is being held back 2 points thanks to this hard drive. oh what an SSD could do...

of course, it would be a boot drive. blinging, to help my PC look even cooler. and it could hold at least one additional game. that would have to be MW2. im the only pc gamer round here that plays it, so it deserves some SSD lovin.

*kiss*
December 3, 2009 1:23:02 AM

I just wanted to say what a nice and generous thing you are doing annisman. As for me, I won't put in for anything as I bought myself enough new comp stuff for Christmas as it is (all the stuff in my sig, sans 4850).
December 3, 2009 2:36:14 AM

I need the ddr2 for a spare system I'm upgrading. Waited too long to purchase since the recent price increases.

I gotta say the placement of that SSD is hilarious, it would be alot worse however, if it was a regular spin drive.
December 3, 2009 3:43:47 AM

Please enter me for the Ram.
I have been saving parts for a Media Center in my Den.
So far I have:
Ga-P35 board
E6750 w/HSF
WD 250 HDD
Hauppague 2250 Tuner
9600GT

Still need:
PSU...I gave 2 away this past year. errrr
RAM
December 3, 2009 3:59:34 AM

I really can't use any of the PC parts. I have a laptop and its not the worth the upgrade even if it is possible. Its great to see you in the Christmas spirit, I wish I could do the same though I have nothing digital or PC related parts to hand out.

I think I'll enter in for the Steam Gift. I would really like to play Team Fortress 2. I've been saving up to buy a new (Desktop) PC so I haven't had any extra money to buy games lately. My favorite games are:

1) Half-Life 2 (Currently playing through it, best game ever!)
2) Star Wars Battlefront II (The first PC video game I bought, and still pretty decent)
3) Counter-Strike (Well, it was one of the most widely played games and still is)

And I'm really glad you said something about Christ. I'm a Christian and I certainly believe that Christ is the center of Christmas. Though it isn't actually his birthday it is a day we can set aside and be thankful for all He's given us. He gave us the one gift none of us can give - His Son and I'm so thankful for that. Best wishes to you and your family and Merry Christmas!
December 3, 2009 4:21:01 AM

What a nice thing to do for the holiday season!

I purchased my rig about a month ago, so your parts will be better spent with the others. Unfortunately for me, that left me with little money for a next-gen game.

I would like to enter for the steam gift, with my game of choice being: Mass Effect

My old rig wasn't all that great, so my gaming experience has been limited to old school games :D 
1) Starcraft
2) Doom 3
3) Half-life (original)
December 3, 2009 5:07:51 AM

Wow, very nice of you. And a Merry Christmas to you too. I'd like to enter into the Game give away. I'm REALLY light on money myself as I lost my job, and this is something amazing your doing for total strangers.

I'll choose
Bioshock (my friends keep telling me to buy it)

MY favorite games of all time..hard choices..
1) Everquest, I guess as I spent yrs playing it
2) Doom2 and Wolfenstien, as those were my first real PC games.
3) The original Tony Hawk for Dreamcast, as me and my buds spent a many a night playing Horse in it.

Awesome giveaway, and good luck to everyone who enters.
Merry Christmas.
December 3, 2009 5:24:42 AM

I would like that sound card. But please do let us know how to enroll for this giveaway!

1. I only have on-board sound.
2. I have the PCI slot.
3. My speaker and the on-board driver don't match well. Would like to have that to improve the sound quality! I watch a lot of movies over the weekend. On an average 5-8 per week. Also love rock songs! But unfortunately don't have the sound quality to boot! I don't get the feel of movies on a headphone so i only use speakers, headphones are only for gaming. Sound quality-wise, my PC sucks!

Whether you end up getting it or not, that is a great looking pc!

Love the Antec 900, just love it.
December 3, 2009 7:19:36 AM

Would love to win GRID

Favourite games though... tricky... how new or old do I go...

1) Portal
2) Link's Awakening (That was the zelda on the original gameboy)
3) Audiosurf

That was missions. There are so many SNES and Gameboy games I could've put, not to mention some of the indie title from the last couple of years!

Merry Christmas all!

Jesus H. Christ, I see so many disasters waiting to happen!
December 3, 2009 9:46:20 AM

Anyway, GJ Annisman we are proud of you. Hopefully I will be able to do the same soon.

BTW that SSD is a hell of a deal, real nice. I hope someone stuck on Vista gets it...
December 3, 2009 9:55:45 AM

This is a great idea for the holiday season and I commend your giving spirit!

I would like to enter for a Steam Game :D 
My brother keeps going on about how awesome Mirror's Edge is so I might as well give it a shot!

My top three games of all time?

1) Tie Fighter
2) Homeworld Series (I know, not a single game but I loved them all!)
3) MW2 (MechWarrior 2 :p )

Best luck to all, hopefully that hardware finds a deserving home!
December 3, 2009 11:50:16 AM

Annisman - I should start by saying, dude, nice too see someone helping out others! We should have more people like you.

I`m in South Africa where the hardware goodies like a SSD is so expensive I could buy a basic PC for that kind of money. Needless to say, thats what i`d go for! a SSD bootdrive 32GB for me is plenty and then I could relief my little 80GB ata job for some music storage...

Cheers Folk
December 3, 2009 12:37:45 PM

I would like to throw my hat in for the SSD. I have been wanting to revamp my old media canter that I built in 2008 from a bunch of parts I had siiting around, but since loosing my job at the beginning of the year it has impossible to justify any upgrade for anything. The old system chuggs along with Vista and I would really like to have an SSD as a boot drive and use the other drive that is in it as a storage drive. I had to do a lot of modifications to the case to make what I had work and stay cool as the case was from 2005. It works pretty good but the current hard drive is just too slow with the os that is installed. Pictures are below:





December 3, 2009 1:09:19 PM

I just wanted to say I think this is a neat thread and I hope the 4 winners are happy with their gifts. I honestly don't need any of the hardware (yes, I'm lucky!) and I have way too many games on Steam that I really haven't played very much. Best of luck to everyone!

But I still want to say my 3 favorite games of all time...

Tie Fighter
Hearts of Iron 2
Ultima 7 Part 2

its my old amd rig. i gave it to my brother for christmas about 2 years ago when i upgraded the last time.
December 3, 2009 3:20:14 PM

It is awesome to see such contributors in these kinds of communities (and rare).
Dont need any of the hardware my self but am inspired by such actions
December 3, 2009 3:49:25 PM

Wow, glad to see so many votes for Tie Fighter as favorite game. I would have to go with that too as my favorite. Just finished replaying it too (hard w/o cheats), so I can confirm it really is awesome, even today, and it is not just our memories making it seem better than it was.

Best of luck to all who are entering.
December 3, 2009 3:50:46 PM

This post is for the Super Talent 32GB Ultra Drive Me SSD

It would fit perfectly into her new rig... and would likely be for WOW and EQ2, possible boot drive as well.

*EDIT* I really hope my girlfriend doesn't post in here trying to win the sound card for me, LOL, that would spoil christmas for the both of us! HAHA! Happy Holidays everyone!

I currently have a decent rig (check my signature), so i am not in need of it myself, but i am in the middle of building my girlfriend a hot-pink computer for Christmas, i finally got her to start gaming, so i feel i owe her a decent rig, besides, it'll stop her from hogging my rig all the time. the items i am currently using for her build are as follows:

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate - OEM

CPU/Processor: Intel E8400 3.0Ghz CPU

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

December 3, 2009 6:43:46 PM

I guess I'll take a shot at getting that SSD. I've got an old ~200GB SATA drive I've been using for about three years now, and I've also got a slavaged 40GB one (came from a police computer my dad ripped apart for the department, was in a Gateway). I can guarentee that I would use this SSD as a W7 container, maybe put FireFox and a few other small things on there (like the Adobe stuff every computer needs).
December 3, 2009 7:03:36 PM

I'd like to enter for the sound card.
My onboard Realtek doesn't play well in Windows 7 with certain apps.
December 3, 2009 7:12:54 PM

[Removed due to not reading the rules]
December 3, 2009 7:30:41 PM

I'd like to take a shot at the soundcard.

I do have a PCI card slot free since I'm using only one PCI-e slot for my graphics card, no money to get an SLI motherboard or a 2nd card lol. Never ever had a proper sound card in my life. Always satisfied myself with onboard audio (like I'm doing now since i don't have any other go). Why would I like this card? Well, I have plenty of HD movies on my drive and on an external drive. I don't have any 5.1 audio system at home either. So the PC is pretty much the pinnacle of my audio experience. And this card would spruce it up a lot. Might finally be able to justify upgrading to better speakers or a proper headphone if I could get this sound card. An X-fi in the $100+ range is certainly not something I could afford. Besides I'm a keyboardist (as hobby I've pursued for the past 10 years or so) and sound and music are very important to me.

Merry Christmas well in advance to everyone and good luck everybody.

And its very nice of you to give away all this stuff for free, no matter who wins it, I think you deserve a special round of applause.


My 3 year old PC's configuration is here:

Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66Ghz
4gb RAM
MSI P35 Neo-F motherboard (yes, Im using onboard sound)
250gb Western Digital HDD
ASUS 8800GTX
Logitech X-230 2.1 speakers
Viewsonic 19 inch monitor


I have my exams going on now, and I'll try and post a picture of my PC once they're over.

Here's my story:

I'm a 22 year old student at the University of Central Florida. I've just recently applied to the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA) which is a UCF accredited graduate school for game design! ( check it out: http://www.fiea.ucf.edu )

Anywho, as a graduation/Christmas present my parents obliged to pay for a new PC in an attempt to aid my efforts in the Interactive Entertainment industry.

I put together this beauty not too long ago:



Much to my dismay however, the sparkling new 7200.12 HDD was DOA!! Like yourself, I just sent it in for RMA and am now left HDD-less for the holidays!

This is my first build, and I am rather distraught not having it go smoothly. If I were to get your SSD I would surely use it as a boot drive and bask in its high speed.

Thanks for the great opportunity and good luck to everyone! Happy Holidays :)

Guys I need to point out that you can only enter for one item, not for 'either this one or that one' just one, please edit your posts to reflect that so that I can keep you in contention for one of the prizes, thank you.

I edited the OP to make that more clear ;)

Hello, I would like to have the 4gb of G skill ram. That is because I am currently building a new computer for my dad and really would like to get more Ram for him so he can run Windows 7. Since my computer sees only 3gb of ram i was thinking of givin him the 1 gb so he will have 1 gb. SO PLEASE help me out.
