Big Download has been giving away a bunch of hot games recently, and now we're looking to give a high-powered gaming computer away to one lucky winner. iBuypower
, manufacturer of custom built high-performance gaming rigs, is partnering with Big Download to give away a brand-new Paladin F870-SB
system, which uses the latest Intel Core i7 processor technology. This bad boy is completely decked out with 1 TB of hard drive space, 6 GB of RAM, two ATI 4870 video cards, 8-channel surround sound, a Blu-ray drive and a 20.1" Sceptre widescreen monitor. Check out the official iBuypower website
for the full specs
on this monster, which retails for $2,499.
Winning will require a little bit of detective work. Since there's so much fuss around DRM in PC gaming, we've decided to DRM the entire computer using old-school copy protection methods. Specifically, contestants will need to "check the manual" (our website) to complete a 5-word phrase. Email the completed phrase to firstname.lastname@example.org
to enter into the random drawing for the iBuypower Paladin F870 computer system.
Here are the directions:
1. Click on the image above or gallery link
below for the clues
2. Follow the clues to find keywords planted within Big Download features to complete a 5-word phrase
3. Email the completed phrase to email@example.com
to be entered into the random drawing
4. Only one valid entry (with the correct phrase) allowed per person. Retries are accepted and won't count against participants.
5. Entries must be received by 11:59PM on December 8, 2008. Click Here
