We're big fans of fast hardware, and we know you're big fans of winning free stuff. It just so happens that Intel is sponsoring a sweepstakes that puts 20 Core i7-4770K processors20 Z87-based motherboards from Asus (Maximus VI Hero) and Gigabyte (Z87X-D3H), and 20 SSD 530 180 GB drives in our hands to give away. Interested? Of course you are!

A couple of weeks ago, we featured 15 different Haswell-based PC builds in this picture story. All you had to do was flip through the systems, check out the specs and pricing, and then click the contest link on the last page to tell us which three of these configurations are your favorites. Base your decision on performance, form factor, price, or a particularly well-planned balance of parts. Whatever's most important to you!

At the end of the contest, the top three will be given Tom's Hardware Approved awards, so make those votes count. In the process, you'll be entered to win one of 20 prize packages that includes a new CPU, motherboard, and SSD.

    most of those pc's were absurdly priced. I picked the budget mini and micro atx ones

    I once bought a half-decent BMW for the price of one of the graphics cards in one of those computers.

    I personally ignored the price and looked at the systems based on how they are set up and how they might perform as gaming machines.

    You too can live in a financially irresponsible country.

    What does that have to do with anything here? I ignored the prices because all of the systems are way over priced for what you are getting. I don't think I could spend more than $3.5k building a system with dual graphics and full water cooling even if I picked some of the more expensive parts.

    Ah, its a sensitive subject?

    I was pointing out the price as being pertinent becase we all actually Live in/on THE REAL WORLD, where the cost is absolutely pertinent in anything anyone remarks on; otherwise its just a delusion rather than an enjoyable game.

    they want us to select what we would use or like to use, if i put cost as a factor i can't select a single one of these just because they are all overpriced.

    i had a dream computer build in my mind for a while, and it comes out to 3 grand, none of the 3 grand computers even come close to what i have in my mind.
