Thanks for the awesome contest, Linus. For any gaming rig I make, It HAS to be up-gradable, and very futureproof.

Holy crap it's that time again! PAX Prime is coming and Intel's gearing up for the show by sponsoring us to be at the show and also... apparently giving away TWO gaming systems. One of them is a Potenza gaming desktop from Maingear and the other is a Valkyrie gaming notebook from iBuyPowerI do have a bit of bad news, however. Because this is a PAX Prime promotional giveaway, eligibility is limited to Canadians (sorry Quebec, not you guys) and residents of the 50 US states.




With that out of the way... HUGE thanks to Intel for making this giveaway possible. I'm especially thrilled that out of the two systems that are being given away for PAX Prime one of them is being given to us for LTT forum members only! How cool is that!!??










1. Enter to win an iBuyPower Valkyrie gaming notebook by simply tweeting WHY you want a new gaming system with hashtag #IntelGaming. The full rules and regulations are here.


2. Click here to check out the current Intel Gaming Promo!! Intel is giving away a ton of CPUs, SSDs, and NUCs. All you have to do is buy a qualifying product and submit your proof of purchase for a chance to win, or check out the official rules and follow the instructions to enter without buying anything! 


3. If you haven't checked it out already, we're also promoting the Intel VIP Tech Zone smartphone app available for Android and iOS! Through the app you can get news, special promotions, and exclusive giveaways.







The Potenza that's being given away has a massive 16GB of RAM with a Core i7 4770K processor, which will make it a great choice for both gaming and content creation. It also has a GeForce GTX 660 graphics card, and it's all packed into a gorgeous modified Silverstone Fortress series mITX case. Absolutely awesome. Here are the full details:


MSRP: $1599

Specs of system:

Thanks for the cool contest, Linus. Intel rocks for making this happen.

 I dont really know what counts for a rig but this is what I think : reliability, upgrade-ability, small size, and something proud to own. Also I love you Linus and I have never owned a gaming PC before, so if I win, could you please help me decide and pick out a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. I really want to get into gaming but I do not have enough money so this would really help:) thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well count me in ,


why I wish to have this ,

Rip it apart build it better and as my own , also by learning more about different components '


This is the most fun part of getting a new pc or constructing a gaming pc and researching or trying to combine or make various parts all fit in tighter or match up  ,

 I have built and learned allot about AMD base systems on my first custom built  , would be something new to learn or get more knowledge on intel based systems ,
