[Freebies] Second Annual Shion314 OCN Giveaway - Full Rig and more [CLOSED] - Page 5  

post #41 of 301
Haply for us Shion has a constant upgrade rage thumb.gif

Well, thanks again for another great freebie, not just because we can get free stuff from here, but because it makes people eager to participate in OCN, even if it's to boost their stats tongue.gif I remember the first one and that it was a success.


Well, I did the entire post, I can tell you that I live in Brazil. My father is a military and we move a lot. My girlfriend, for example, is from Argentina, and I haven't seen her in 2 months frown.gif It's OK, though, I have found my lifetime partner in her and we have all of our lives ahead of us.


I obviously want the backup rig because it's way much better than my current rig - I can't afford to buy a new one, not even a new laptop which I REALLY need a new one because of school, but I'm saving money even on the little things like not buying candy, so I have money to see my girlfriend and be with her.
If I win anything, I will what I won, basically because you are giving away only things that are better than the things I own, and probably sell my current stuff.
The other stuff I want too, because are things I do not own. I'm dying to play a new game, the ram on my notebook could be better, since it's shared with my GPU, I hate my case and wanted to get a new one - it was the best I could find in the town I was living in.


To help you out, so you can check my entries instead of calculating them, IDK...
at the time of this post I have:
170 rep, 3 years of ocn, 2342 posts (500 + 1842)
17 + 6 + (10+7) = 40 entries biggrin.gif

Hurray!

I'm update it when we are closer to the draw thumb.gif

The extra I wanna add is that today we had a great football match which we won 36x0 against a rookie team as an offseason practice game.
Yes, there is football in Brazil biggrin.gif I play WR and it was my first start on the team after a year with them thumb.gif

Edit: something else, I was just browsing 9gag for a while when... http://9gag.com/gag/a1vGWnv biggrin.gif

Like the way your running this buddy and appreciate what your doing here giving away to fellow members :-)

I'm in the UK, Kent/England

I think I should win because I have a third nipple!! Haha lol, I don't really (no offense to those that do) but on a serious note its just nice to win something now and again as I'm poor n can't afford to buy anything as I don't have a job so still searching for one and somehow need to find £220 to pay for my sia license renewal lol, yeh would be nice to have a second rig I've never been rich enough to have 2 lol

This is awesome, I am totally in! Want this for use, initially folding, but eventually to be put to use in the non-profit I'm getting off the ground, which is taking older PC's and refurbishing them, and then donating them to the "battered women's shelter", low-income schools, and so forth. I plan to offer people an option in which they can be "guaranteed" a computer if they attend a class that teaches them how to build a PC (and of course how to work with/install all the requisite software), as I want to give not just an item, but a skill to any of these people smile.gif

I think that this would be an awesome machine to somehow integrate into this program, although I am not exactly certain of how (lots of semi-formed ideas already though!). Oh, I am in Ohio smile.gif

IF NOTHING ELSE, it'd be hooked up to some sub-zero water cooling and/or phase change to GET OCN TO NUMBER 1 on HWBOT!!! WOO-HOO!!!

Here's my story, and it's going to sound really out there I am sure -

Well, I'll begin by stating that I am in the midst of potentially doing one of the stupidest things I have ever done. And I'm probably an idiot for posting this here, but whatever. I've recently come to the end of a two year relationship with a great woman who just wasn't right for me, and things have been kind of rough, to say the least. I'm one to try and make the best of things, so I have been spending the past three weeks of being single really trying to work on getting back to my old self. During the course of this time, I had thought about this girl I used to date in high school...a lot. Which is really strange...cause that was 10 years ago. We've seen each other through the years, but the last time I saw her, things were going terrible for her. Her parents, both of them, passed before she was even considered an adult, and she was on her own. Over the years, I found out she had turned to drugs to ease her pain, which in turn only made things worse for her.

She was always such a bright, cheery, gorgeous young woman, when we where in high school, with everything in the world going for her. But once her parents died, she took a really bad turn. She dropped out of college, and became addicted to methamphetamine. I had limited contact with her during this time, for obvious reasons, only talking once or so every few years. As of a couple weeks ago, I hadn't talked to her in two years. The last time we seen each other, she was a mess, to say the least. It's always hurt me to no end to see how she ended up, and I've always felt somewhat responsible, even though I shouldn't...like I could have done something to prevent it. But I know there was nothing I could have done. At that point, she was still too far gone to understand that she needed help, and she shut me out. I let her know that I think she should get clean and come stay with me, hours away from where she is now. She wasn't ready for it...and you can't force someone to get clean...she needed to want it for herself. I did what I could, but she wouldn't hear it, so we went our separate ways, though I have always worried about if she was OK.

So anyway, I decided to message her about a week ago, just to see how she was doing, and to tell her I was sorry for being so hard on her the last time we met. She told me she had been thinking of me 24/7 since then, and that she's been clean for over a year now. I'm always skeptical with her, with anything she says, but she seemed to be showing the only sincerity I had seen from her since as long as I could remember. So I decided that it couldn't hurt to go see her, at the very least maybe I can make her smile a bit, something I'm sure she rarely does anymore. Anyway, we meet, and she's looking really good, much better than two years ago. I spent the day with her, and all I could do is feel awful for her. I mean, I really was happy to see her, and see that she was clean and doing better, but she has nothing. And I mean nothing - no TV, no cable, no internet, no bed, no couch, no microwave...nothing. She's got no one to help her or look to for support, and the people who do seem like they are their to help her are only trying to take advantage of her situation, usually ending up hitting on her or harassing her. She's constantly scared, on edge, because of the people she knew when she was an addict. All I had been doing since I met her again the other day is worry about how she does it, how she even wakes up in the morning. She does nothing all day but do crosswords and play solitaire, and her whole day changes when I call her. I spent a couple days thinking about what her life must be like now...and I felt like everyone has given up on this girl, and you know what, I wasn't going to. I told her to come stay with me again, not even really thinking about it because I just knew it would never happen, but I thought to myself, if I don't at least try, I'll never know for sure, and I'll always wonder if I could have helped her. Right away, almost as if she had been waiting for me to say it, she agrees it would really help her to get away from her past and start new with someone like me who really truly is looking out for her best interests and not just trying to sleep with her or something. Anyway, I guess long story short, she is coming to stay with me for awhile as of next weekend, and since it's going to be me and her nearly 24/7, and she has nothing to bring with her, the spare rig would be a dream come true. Money will be tight for the next while, since now I will be supporting the two of us, but if I won the spare rig, then she could hang out and game with me all the time. I don't like to leave her alone too much, that's when her depression really takes hold, and I think some online gaming could be a great new hobby for her to get into with me that will keep her away from the bad stuff. Anyway, I know, I know, blah blah lol But that was about getting stuff of my chest to no one in particular, as much as it was a contest entry lol Thanks if you made it this far redface.gif

Also, my location is to the left, but just in case - Kitchener, Ontario (Canada)

EDIT again - not sure where I got 147 from last night, guess it's 65 entries...still like the sounds of that too lol

The thing that makes sure you read this post. It's easy to figure out if you read this full OP. Without it I won't count you in.
A story of some sort as for why you want this or whatever. I could care less. This is more for my enjoyment and for your chance at the 4th mystery prize.
Whatever else you wanna put in. I don't care. Just don't go too far off topic, stick to the TOS, and no large obnoxious pictures. Keep it clean but amusing.

Welp, I want it because well, tight on cash for one but also I need a replacement for the most part everything of mines is dying of age, literally i used it for so long its refusing to turn back on ever, even when replacing parts lol, i can't keep doing this.

Every 10 rep is 1 entry.
Every 6 months on OCN is 1 entry.
Every 50 posts up to 500 posts is 1 entry. So at 500 you get 10 entries from posts. Past 500 every 250 posts will net you an additional entry.

that brings my total to....

I wish I had a SOB story right now lol...
But I've got nothing. I'm a 17 year old student happily living in some suburbs near Philly... with a 4+ year old computer (and a gpu upgrade). I was planning to jump to Haswell sometime when it comes out, but if I won you'd seriously be saving my wallet and giving me a computer stronger than I could ever consciously afford laugher.gif

Thank you very much for this opportunity. thumb.gif Also the setup is great, as it give everyone a chance.

In for the backup pc, but I would be happy with any prize. I live in Las Vegas, NV

Well let me start off. I recently turned 16 and I've been working on computers since I was 10! I worked the last two years, on and off saving up for my own computer and giving the rest to my parents to help them out.. I actually built one last year and I sold it. Used the money to buy a new one. I originally planned to build another once again, but I saw this ad on classifieds on here that was a deal too good to pass. I snatched it up, and this was actually my birthday present. I didn't get anything from my parents, except a dinner, but I was happy since they let me buy that computer. So fast forward a couple of weeks and the computer is delivered. Everything seems OK, but the computer will not display. I will admit, I was in denial, and I thought I had simple cable issues. The seller had good feedback, so I have him the benefit of the doubt. Turns out the video card, the most expensive component was dead. I tried to contact the seller, offering to work something out. No reply. I threw in a bunch of offers to resolve the problem, even offered to send the video card or the whole computer back, first, and then receive the refund or a small refund for a new video card. No reply. I will admit, I was hoping to open a case with Paypal, receive a refund and return the whole computer.. I gave him 3 days to reply, but he did not. Then another two days. I was really frustrated because I knew he could read my emails through his regular email ( He had been replying to my emails within a couple of minutes even on working days, so he must've had notifications through his regular email that alerted him) My parents started to get suspicious and they started to get angry, Being desperate I tried to open a case with Paypal, so they could refund my money. I would then send the computer back but since I paid through personal, I had no protection. I tried to contact him a couple more times and still no reply.

He advertised the computer as fully working, but being that he replied to none of my messages after I told him the card was dead, I am pretty sure he scammed me. He even left feedback on my channel accusing me of being a crook, when I did no such thing. I am not sure how he based this since I offered several solutions to out problem, and he didn't respond to ONE message. (I have all the messages backed up, in case I am doubted) I wanted to get what I paid for specially, since I have no money for new gear. This was back in February, and I just recently sent an RMA to Asus. They will probably not fix the card since it had cooler shroud had damage, but that was my last hope. So that one incident ruined the next two months. My parents constantly yelling at me for losing out. But that the only issue that I ran in this great community.

Oh forgot to add that that slowed me down on a very large project (attempt to create a game). The software I planned to use required a video card (only a few specific ones would work ), but I obviously didn't have one. So I had to scrap my plans and some previous models I had and basically start over, while being on tight schedule. Well, I managed and I created some elements for a game. The project turned out great, but it could've turned out better.

So.... not much of a reason to win. I accepted that it is mine now. Well, actually I've liked it since the beginning but the video card ruined it for me. I wish it was just sold without a video card and I would add one later. If it was like that, it would made these pasts months heaven. Right now I am sort of addicted to buying stuff for the computer. I've recently made $120 dollars by fixing the computers of friends and family. I don't actually charge anything but they pay me, and it would be rude to not accept tongue.gif . With that I bought a Bitfenix Recon Fan Controller, and a NZXT LED strip for around 35. I am planning to buy a new mouse, since my current one is dying on me. I am also planning to buy one of those fancy Bitfenix 230mm fans. But these days will come to an end soon. Right now I am planning to work over the summer so I can start a college fund (Have one with around $500 in it; money I worked for, but that is nowhere near anything). I am a sophomore right now and I am in a program called IB, a worldwide program. Recently, I've been slacking... and I really need to pick up my grades (been getting some B's recently, but if I start to put effort into school, I can easily get them up. Hoping to get a career dealing with computers biggrin.gif

1. I believe I meet the requirements. I even meet the unstated requirement of being uncomfortably good looking.

2. I am trying to build a machine to kill God and I need all of the computing power I can get my hands on. Just kidding, I have enough computing power. In all seriousness though, I've always wanted to do an in-depth review of how AMDs Vishera CPUs stack up against Intel's Sandy/Ivy CPUs in games and everyday tasks. It seems like most review websites either do a terrible job or are unprofessionally biased towards one of the companies. With this rig and a bit of my own money, I might be able to accomplish that.

3.

This is an amazing freebie and I would like to thank you for your generosity, even if I don't win tongue.gif
PS: I live in Oregon (it's a state in North America)
