[Freebies] Winner Announced! AMD Sponsored HTPC RIG!!! & Audio Goodies! A10-7850K, 8gb DDR3, Custom Case, Yamaha Receiver! - Page 4  

post #31 of 217
I would love to win this, I don't even have an HTPC! I'm just a student without a job and I have to beg/borrow/steal just to get parts. Craigslist has been my best friend, and on top of that I would use the HTPC for my brothers to game on it, primarily for retro gaming and emulators! Also as a family computer.

My brother and I stayed up till 1am last night talking about old games from SNES, N64, PS1; and even my dad joined in and talked to us about how when he was stationed in Kunsan AB, Korea how he played Metal Gear Solid, and Tekken 3, and other ps1 classics. He would tell me how his roommate would be in his chem suit after an exercise playing metal gear, I remember when he came home and we played metal gear, he had everything unlocked like the tuxedo, the bandanna, and stealth.

Anyways, this would be a great way for my family to play nostalgic games together, we love retro games, and it was also my brother'a birthday yesterday!


Aaand I love tacos! wink.gif


Thanks for the opportunity and for giving back to OCN!

I would like to win this because I'm running a mobile Core 2 Duo mini rig as my HTPC. And I really miss gaming. My build log for my main HTPC has honestly died, and I'm not sure why. I'm also missing audio equipment to really make my 50" TV shine, but the big thing is, I miss being able to kick back and play a game.

I'm also on SSI, so making something new...honestly is very difficult to do for me considering my bills take up 90% of my income.

This is the best giveaway I think I've ever seen! drool.gif
I could really use this, as right now I'm running one of the old mac minis (2007 I think). It can't even handle multiple chrome tabs anymore without freaking out (it's got like a gig of ram...). Plus silverlight for mac keeps getting buggier everyday. It barely handles steam in home streaming at 720p @30fps. Xbmc streaming is about as far as it gets unhindered at the moment. Was considering getting a new HTPC, but between paying for school and everything else that would take a while.
This prize would fulfill everything I need.
*Playing my Blu-Ray/DVD rips via XBMC (local & streaming)
*steam In-Home streaming
*NetFlix
*Playing Music
*Playing 2D games locally at good settings with that APU
*Some web browsing
*more than likely looking awesome

Plus your even throwing in BF4, and a HT reciever. This looks awesome, good luck to all. thumb.gif

Post a brief justification as to why they want a Kick Ass HTPC rig!
Be a established OCN member with at least 100 Posts and 10 REP!
Do not PM or contact me about the drawing

- Just wanna update for my dad's HTPC, hes using a roku atm, so I wanted to give him something little more responsive, I've been scrapping parts here and there and have a A4 - 8 gb of ram, and a psu, but still waiting on getting other materials, like the mobo and stuff, So this would save me some money and i'll pitch some shipping money happily.

- Im pretty sure i make the post count and rep count, but let me recount just to make sure wink.gif

- no pm's here smile.gif unless you pm me first, tongue.gif

I want an HTPC so I can suspend a monitor above my bed and play indie games with a cat in my lap.
