Pay For Presents Contest - Page 4

post #31 of 77
Heh I'm too broke to spend $500 on tech type stuff. I did buy my son an xbox and a couple of games (all from a pawn shop) and a dvd player for my daughter (new, but cheap). I also got my mother in law a cheap digital photo frame.

$70 for the xbox and games
$30ish for the dvd player
$40 for the photo frame

My 12 year old, $289.20 at newegg to build her a PC with my QX6700 and motherboard thats been sitting in the closet and my wife got her a few clothes.

My twin 16yr old daughters, well I gave my wife money for each of them and she is buying them clothes I guess, LOL

My wife, I told her I'm not getting her anything
I'll probably sneek out and get her something at the last minute, I tell her that so she won't get me anything that never works though

Update: Wife gave me the rest of the damages today DEC 21, LOL

Daughter 12,
Already had the CPU, Motherboard and Memory.
New parts needed to build her a computer,
Case NZXT Alpha $59.99
Powersupply BFG 650w $69.99
Evga 9800 GT $114.99
DVD Burner $21.99
Pink CASE FAN $4.99
Total with shipping $289.20
Also got her,
Sims 2 Apartment life $15.70
Sims 3 Pre-ordered $5.41

Daughters 16 (Twins),
Clothes too many to list (Just adding up the reciepts from DEC, 20 and 21) $543.87

Nephew
HotWheels race set 21.97
Kids Knex set 10.97

Total $887.12 With TAX. Not counting the one reciept she lost

So saying this, for one lucky member, Overclock.net will pay for the presents you give others (up to $500)!

All you have to do to have a chance at winning is post in this thread a list of what you have purchased for your family/friends/loved ones and how much each item costs (make sure the recipient is not a member of Overclock.net or you will spoil the surprise!). Items you purchase for yourself should not be included on this list.

On December 26th, we will choose one lucky winner and pay for those gifts that you purchased!

Prize awarded via PayPal only.

Good luck

PS - Just so we don't get any exaggerations, if you win, please provide some proof of these purchases/dates/amounts.
Wow. Every day I manage to love this site even more. That is a great thing you are doing as I feel a tiny part of me die every time I see a "Parting out sig rig" thread in the For Sale section :/
