    how about a 3dmark01 low score? is something that everybody should be able to do and it gives valuable insight into the benchmark, your own pc hardware, and creative de-tuning abilities. even if you only have "high end" hardware, a very low score is entirely possible. nobody on this forum would need to "buy in" with hardware... so its accessable to everybody. It would also provide an equal chance to all contestants as it really comes down to how lucky, patient, and creative you are.

    Please random drawing
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.

    What do you think?
    Not a bad way to go about it, me thinks. The hardware looks amazing, though it would definitely be in better hands to most of the users here than mine.

    That is pretty awesome of the sponsors. I like the idea of a contest where you do something to be eligible and then a random drawing of participants for the winners. Winners are only allowed to win once which would provide for multiple winners. The goal of the contest should be something that benefits the community, such as posting a work log, crunching for WCG or anything along those lines that would increase traffic or help a good cause. I personally like the crunching/folding thing since it helps more than this community.

    sorry everyone things got to be extremely hectic and wasn't able to keep up. I am hoping to get this, or something similar going soon, just not sure on exact details as of yet.

    again, my apologies.
