I seen the Live broadcast last night! Awesome. Count me in for the 16 Geebees Platinum

Yes it was a good show last night and it would be nice to have that beautiful 16 Gb of Corsair ram.

Who wouldn't rant RAM in that sexy velcro case? Pick me, that 16GB Corsair would let my system FLY!

I would love to have the memory kit for a new build.

My puter is a bit long in the tooth and needs to be retired.

Though after watching the live video last night I thought that there would be a link to a contest page??

Of course while I was posting that, the contest page opened. ;)

There's a problem with this and similar contests. They require you to purchase a Facebook membership to enter. Don't tell me that Facebook is free; the tracking info FB gets is worth big bucks. Ask your lawyer what happens when this gets declared an illegal lottery.
