I need to find a sponsor for a black DVD-RW / CD-RW ( like
this one ) combo drive for the Killer Gaming Rig #9. In the past
I have went with multiple drives, but this year I have different plans,
and multiple drives just isn't practical this time around. Then again,
If I can only get separate drives, then I will make do with what I can.
Got an idea or a lead to a DVD-RW combo drive? Let
The Killer Gaming Rig #9 is
now officially OPEN!!! You gotta get in it to win it...simply drop your
name in the hat once a day and try to win this awesome machine. We are
still getting everything together, but we are off to a great start with
GeForceFX 5900Ultra 256MB, and a 3GHz
Pentium4 800MHz FSB part, cooling will be handled by a DangerDen
Maze4 Watercooling kit.
$150 a Day Contest has come to a close, all winners have
been notified and all winners have responded. The Killer Gaming Rig #9
opens tomorrow, but I suppose it'd be O.K. of you wanted to get your
name in the hat early. Check out the contest page.
Intel has stepped up to the plate once again for you guys and provided
an awesome 3GHz Pentium 4 ( 800MHz FSB ) for the Killer Gaming Rig #9.
Trying to always make a "better" KGR from contest to contest is
difficult, but with what we have so far, this definitely be the biggest
and the baddest ( until KGR 10 ). Again, a big Thanks to
Intel for the continued support. When you are plopping down
your buying dollars...you guys need to seriously remember which
companies support the community like this.
Everything for the Killer Gaming Rig #9 just started flowing in after a
minor set back. The Asylum
GeForceFX 5900Ultra 256MB came in today courtesy of the fine
folks at BFG Technologies.
Take a gander at that bad
boy right there. Again, mucho thanks to BFG for taking care of you guys
and this giveaway. This should also make the NVIDIA fans happy that were
constantly e-mailing me about having an NVIDIA card in our KGR rigs
again. Your wish is granted...in spades, baby!!
I just stumbled onto somewhat of an alarming trend. Apparently my e-mail
filters ( yes, I use more than one
thanks to craptactular stuff
like the W32/Sobig-A worm, and all the other virus/worms/spam
) has been deleting legitimate mail if the subject header fits the
description of a possible spam or infected mail. I only found this out
today when I noticed a legitimate e-mail with the subject heading "DETAILS"
was quarantined accidentally. When I looked further into my
"blocked senders" list, there were MANY people on there unintentionally.
So...please, please, please do not send e-mail that says stuff like
"make it bigger" or "best rates ever"...because
I probably won't get it.
Thanks to BFG Technologies
the Killer Gaming Rig #9 will have an Asylum
GeForceFX 5900Ultra. Our friends at Intel
are also stepping up to the plate to make this an Intel powered machine.
I have a few more announcements for the KGR #9 coming shortly. The
giveaway will officially open this Friday, will run for 4 weeks and then
a winner will be drawn. Be ready, this will be the baddest of the Killer
Gaming Rigs yet.

Thanks to the fantastic guys at our local Babbage's, we will have five
$150 gift certificates up for grabs in our next "one a day"
contests. The Star Wars: KOTOR Contest is now officially done, everyone
responded and all copies have been shipped.
Just to let everyone know, I am in need of a plain old GM crate motor (
350ci ), nothing fancy, the kind you can buy at your local Chevy
dealership. I have a 70 Camaro that I am restoring for my daughter, but
I haven't done a damn thing with the car in almost 2 years. The plan is
to get a GM crate motor, drop it in the car and my daughter and I will
rebuild the original 330hp 350ci motor as a father daughter project over
the next school year. Got a crate motor laying around? Want something I
have? Wanna make a deal or have the motor to sell...shoot
me a line.
This is the car in question,
it is freshly painted, I have all the emblems, lights bumpers etc. and
the interior is being redone as we speak. The car is completely
original, all the way down to the original AM radio.
Contest Done -Steve
The Star Wars: KOTOR a day contest is now over. As usual, I will leave
the entry form open until all copies are claimed. So feel free to keep
entering until I remove the link. Next up will be video cards, and I
have some preliminary Killer Gaming Rig #9 specs for you guys as well.
Holy hell...day after tomorrow I turn 35 years old, two days after that
my wife Annette turns 35. Although I am now officially old and krusty, I
don't think I look a day over 34. Alright, alright, who am I
kidding? I look old and mean. The bright side is my wife is still as
beautiful as the day I met her and still puts up with me after 15 years.
Anyone else hit a milestone this month ( besides Asia who just had a
birthday )? Let me know.
Working on some interview / autographed game stuff for you guys right
now. For those of you dying to get your hands on some Halo
for the PC, I am talking to Randy Pitchford about visiting
again and answering some questions as well as getting a few autographed
copies of Halo for you guys...sound like a plan?!?! Sounds like a plan
to me. For those of you dying to hear from our long time friend Richard
"Levelord" Gray...I'll rope him in and get him to
answer your questions, maybe get a little autographed ST: Elite Force II
action outta the Ritual
gang while we are at it. Love those guys!!
After somewhat of a longer than usual pause, we will be starting the
Killer Gaming Rig #9 soon. Yes, that is right folks, this
will be the 9th time we have given away a complete, bad ass,
top of the line system for free. This giveaway had been postponed twice
now, the last time because of the charity auction we did to raise money
for the blind. So we have our feelers going out to round up the
components we need, and we will announce the components as we get them (
as always ). I will open the official link on Friday.
The lovely and talented Robin
Meade from CNN will be sitting in for a little interview
action very soon, something all of you have been looking forward to. I
also have a handful of gaming interviews in the works as well...keep
your eyes peeled here for those.
KOTOR Contest -Steve
You guys are lucky that one of the gang that works in the Lucas Arts
camp is a huge Asia Carrera fan. We have 7 copies of Star Wars:
Knights Of The Old Republic up for grab in our latest

enter to win a copy of one of the best games this year...if you can't

copy and playing it.
