There are a few reason why I want to win this HTPC. Well, after building my rigs and messing with them a lot, I have found that I can't really use them as much as I wish do to back pain. I find myself, unless I'm gaming, on my couch with my laptop watching TV. Having an HTPC would fix this problem for me because I would actually be able to game more often, and still fulfill my media needs with with an HTPC because my Chromecast is on the fritz and my wife lost the remote to my tv.... I'd build one myself, but I'm tapped out as far as funds go. =/

Well, I'd been looking for a new CPU for my current HTPC (A4 5300) for some time, but I've been out of funds for some time, the current built has a Micro ATX and its case won't even fit near the TV, would love to be able to run games there instead of having to stream them from my main machine

Thanks for the epic giveaway!

I would love to win this build. My current HTPC setup is quite outdated. I've been looking into building a new one for quite some time but never got around to it. You can see it here.

I would love to win this HTPC for my stepdad to use when watching things on the HDTV we have in the living room. He's always hauling the xbox back and forth across the living room, but he's getting tired of doing it and wants something more capable than the X360. In the event he rejects it, I would happily use it as my bedside rig as i have always wanted an AMD APU based system.
Thank you for the shot at getting this rig, and good luck to the lucky winner!

Carter, can you explain that in *English*?

Why I want this Kick-Ass HTPC -
This is easy!
Cos I am need it! I recently built a house. The builder stuffed it up on a major scale. He didn't waterproof it properly so instead of a theatre room, I now have an indoor wading pool and mushroom farm. He didn't do the electrical wiring properly so I have wires that are burnt from sitting on top of halogen lighting. He didn't do the sewerage line with the proper fall ... so everyday, my ground floor used to get flooded with excrement. I can go on ... he royally stuffed me up. Now I am living in a rental, but have to keep paying mortgage and rent, he has also caused me to lose my family well, we still live together, but we no longer have a relationship). Need I go on? lol
I want this HTPC to cheer me up. It will be the first thing to go right for me in 4 years! lol
I want this HTPC so that when I finally have my theatre room (probably my current lounge room that I will call a theatre room as I can't afford a house anymore, much less a theatre room), I will have something to look forward to and enjoy ... and hopefully forget my troubles! ;-)
Anyway, sorry ... not meant to be a sob story, but well hey ... I am still alive, eh? tongue.gif

In!

 

I'd like to replace my current rig/HTPC (it's a biiiit big for an HTPC) so it can be used for network storage for things my parents need (I have no control over it during tax season either so it would be great for them to use!). I'd also like to be able to use it to substitute for my chromecast which is not all that functional and is having an annoying sound/video desync.

Well for starters that HTPC is much better then my strongest Gaming PC. I'd mostly use it as my new gaming PC, and hand my current PC down to my sister, who'll hand her PC down to my father tongue.gif. It might also play a role as my HTPC of course, due to the much increased hard drive space I would have as I can barely hold my games on this current HDD(150GB).

Thanks for letting me have a chance to win this kickass HTPC.
