As most of you know by now, Tom's Hardware Guide celebrates its 10th anniversary this month. When you hit a milestone like that in a rapidly changing industry like computer hardware, you need to celebrate. That is exactly what we are doing, and we want to share our jubilation with the readers who have been with us along the way.
They bench this monster!!!

The link dosen't work if you live outside North America. Toms sucks because they redirect you to a local site (.co.uk), so links to the main .com site are always broken. From the .co.uk page you can navigate to any of their other sites (.de, .fr etc) but if you click the North America link it turns you back around to .co.uk - therefore they suck balls and shall forever be second place to Ananadtech

I think the 4gb of ram is killing them in that machine. I dont think the ASUS can really handle it. If it where a DFI though...

Either way I signed up to win. Granted it would all get moved into the Armor lol.
