WE'VE EXTENDED THIS COMPETITION UNTIL MARCH 31 2006!

 

It's Christmas time, so that means free prizes for you!

 

 

We've teamed up with our good friends at Gigabyte and Intel to giveaway some great prizes just in time for Christmas and the New Year. We've got over a thousand dollars worth of gear to giveaway to you guys!

 

The theme of the giveaway is Home Theater PC's (HTPC). We want to see some of the wildest and most crazy mods that you yourself have done to HTPC's. We're talking old VCR machines turned into a complete entertainment PC, a sub woofer transformed into a PC or something else totally bizarre that we've never seen before.

 

We're going to run the giveaway till the end of January 2006, which should give you time to come up with a mod over the holiday season or give you time to prepare pictures of your mod which you've completed previously.

 

So, what are we giving away?

 

We have three great prizes to giveaway. We'll have a first, second and third place and the TweakTown lab monkeys will decide which HTPC mods are the best and most deserving of the prizes which we have on offer.

 

FIRST PRIZE: Intel Pentium D CPU
