Hopefully by the end of the month we will be opening a new site contest in which we plan to giveaway over a thousand dollars worth of PC equipment for those readers who continuously participate in our news comments and community forums.

For the time being, we have updated our poll asking what would be your prizes picks for the giveaway. Most common choices include videocards, and CPUs, however if you vote for 'Other', make sure you post here and let us know what would be your pick.

Also don't forget that we are conducting a reader's survey, it will be open for just a few more days, and also gives you a chance to win an iPod Nano.

Finally, here are the results for our last poll (which lasted quite a few weeks, too). Here's the breakdown of TS readers' browsers of choice:

I think a nice high-end case would be a great addition to the prize list. There's plenty available to pick from....possibly even something along the lines of a nice Shuttle micro atx or an FIC Ice Cube.

Additional details... I expect the giveaway to last several weeks (until the end of the year, maybe?), with actual prizes being given away every couple of weeks.So, multiple prizes... $1000+ budget... we want your feedback =)

i would like to see some of the favourite games titles given away. although hardware is a great idea you sometimes have issues with compatability. giving away half-life 2 gold or DOD source would be surely welcomed. possibly even F.E.A.R. or something in that league. for hardware try aiming at the mid ranged gamers, the 6600gt or an amd 3500+ would be a great price for power as prizes. something like the 7800GTX ultra wouldn't be appropriate as it would be way too costly and only really benefit 10% of the gaming community as the rest of their computer wouldn't handle the extra abilities. a high end case would be nice and surely wouldn't be too costly to giveaway. possible even get a case with modifications like vinyls or special paint jobs. Thanks for reading my $0.02 :P

I agree with moimit favourite game titles would be a real treat. I wouldn't mind reference books on various IT topics as givaways
