Destructoid Contest: Win a one-of-a-kind $4,999 Turning Point pc!

Destructoid 2 year anniversary madness continues! As we countdown 730 days of blogging in the good name of the robot we're running a couple of contests you won't want to miss: You have the chance to win a Playstation 3 with Grand Theft Auto 4, a trip to Cancun, and now a one-of-a-kind Turning Point: Fall of Liberty edition Falcon Northwest system!  Gorgeous custom chassis artwork aside, there's some serious power under the hood:

  • 3 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU
  • Two Nvidia GeForce 8800GT cards in SLI
  • Two 500 Gig hard drives in RAID 0
  • Viewsonic 22" Widescreen monitor
  • Mad bragging rights
  • A new place on your desk that you will forbid your roommate to place his filthy Chinese takeout leftovers. No seriously, if you find another sticky chicken wing near your desk you can officially stab him repeatedly in the eye!

How to win it

Show us your rig. That's all there is to it. The winner will be selected at random - simply fire up your blog with an entry called "Not my Turning Point gaming rig" and post a photo and a note about the computer you call home. We'll be featuring some of the notable rigs on our weekend community updates too, so if you'd like to be featured put some work into that post. The contest ends on April 7th, so you've got a month to make it happen. 

Full list of tech specs and larger photos follow soon!

 
  • ICON Exotix – Custom SOF artwork w/ bulletholes
  • ICON Standard Solid
  • Silverstone 1000Watt Strider - Modular

Legal blah blah

No purchase necessary. Sponsor will only ship to North America and Canada. Obviously, we hate leaving our overseas friends out of all these contests so here's what we'll do: If you are overseas and win this we'll ship it to you as long as you agree to pay taxes and shipping on it, or we'll forfeit to another random contestant. Fair enough? Cool. Prize is valued at $4,999.99 and not a penny more (tax reasons, don't ask).

Cheaters: Your IP address is logged so don't make duplicate accounts and photograph your aunt's ugly computer or post random systems from the internet or we will EAT YOUR FACE. 

Have fun and good luck!
