Don’t miss our latest giveaway!

In case you missed it, we’ve got another giveaway in progress. This time, you have a shot at $560 worth of prizes: a PowerColor Radeon HD 7950 Boost, a Samsung P3 1TB external hard drive, and a Rosewill Throne gaming enclosure—all kindly volunteered by Newegg.

Entering for a chance to win is simple: put together some PC parts to resemble a robot or a person, take a picture of the result, and post it in this thread in our forums (after reading the rules in the starter post, of course). You have until August 12 at noon, CDT to post your submission, and we’ll award the prize to the most original and/or funniest photo.

Remember, you don’t necessarily have to use internal components. Any kind of PC hardware will do. You also don’t need to use a fancy camera, and you don’t have to create a life-sized replica of Optimus Prime. Just grab whatever PC hardware is at hand, and have fun!

Oh, and don’t let fears about plagiarism make you hold off until the last minute. Submissions will be judged according to their originality, so it’s doubtful that anything blatantly derivative is going to win.

Good luck, and thanks again to Newegg for volunteering our prizes.

    If I win, can I name someone else to take my prize for me? I’d like to join in the fun but I won’t use that stuff.

    I like competitions but I’d hate to enter for something I won’t use when someone else would be psyched to have it.

    Lucky you contestants are saved because Asian territory is not included.

    Is the winner responsible for taxes and shipping? Is the warranty standard on these items?

    I find it interesting that these giveaways which require personal information coincide with posts that encourage political opinions. Smells fishy.

    In any case, I want the free stuff so “I choose to be spied on”…. NOT

      Unfortunately, it seems the NSA has far more effective ways to trace your online activity than to goad you into entering contests on PC hardware websites.

      For the record, though, no personal information is required to enter this particular giveaway. (We’ll just ask the winner to give us a postal address to which we can ship his or her prize.) And in any event, we have a pretty clear [url=https://techreport.com/privacypolicy.x<]privacy policy[/url<].

        Unfortunately indeed… we can all use more free PC hardware.

      They do? What other giveaways have in any way encouraged or required “political opinions”?

        I was referring to the NSA and government spying posts happening at the same time as the giveaways. Coincidence, maybe.

        Question everything.

    I’m working on it.

    Geh! My only PC parts are in my PC! No way am I taking it apart to rearrange into robo-artwork, then reassembling it just to find out that now it no longer works!! 😀

      At this point taking a usb hub and sharpie’ing eyes on it will get you in 3rd place.

        Very well, I shall take that challenge! I just realized I had a secret weapon tucked away in my closet! Go forth, Sharp PC-5000 ‘286 compy, with 5-1/4 floppies, and MS-DOS 2!!!

    It’s harder than it looks, but I jumped in. Nothing derivative in mine, best and most realistic head of the bunch! 😀

    lol, the number of submissions speak for themselves.

      The fewer the submissions, the higher your chance of winning. Why not give it a try? 🙂

        [s<]I want to do this, but I'm afraid of losing. :([/s<]

          That’s a good attitude you’ve got there… for the other contestants! 😀

            I’m going to enter, I just have to psych myself out.

            YOU CAN DO THIS! But really, if you don’t do this, no big deal.

      You mean, if TR offers half a G-note worth of hardware for simply throwing your name in the box, a million people will enter even though the odds of winning are incredibly low, but if TR offers the same hardware in exchange for a minimum of creative effort, nobody wants to enter?

      Besides, it takes time to get a creative entry together, and the first weekend of the contest only just got here. There are still ten more days to enter, so get crackin’, boy.

        I’m trying to figure out WTH to do with the hardware I have >.> I’m still drawing a total blank
