Jacksonville to Vegas, baby


We came to Dallas. We geeked out. We built computers for charity. Good times.

Destructoid would like to congratulate Colby Baird, who took home a $500 TigerDirect gift card and donated $500 to Texas Equusearch following his victory of building a functioning PC in 6 minutes and 30 seconds.  The second prize winner, Thomas Arvizu, completed his build in 7 minutes and 19 seconds. They'll be facing an insane 4 minute build time record holder in Vegas this January. No pressure, guys!

Want to check out the last regional event in Florida next-next Saturday, the 29th?  Tickets are sold out for Jacksonville builders, but you're still welcome to watch the race for free and cheer our charity builders on. The address of the next event is on Eventbrite; no RSVP to spectate is needed.  Good luck to the next set of builders!
