    No, the poll is configured so you can only vote once.

    :) Good luck everyone, and please realize that we're keeping a close eye on the comments. One user has already been removed from the contest for spamming.

    Getting GTX 460. Need the upgrade to run Crysis 2 when it comes out.
    All of these are great Items though

    I voted GTX 460, but thought about it, and would rather have the cpu/mobo/memory combo! The new parts would upgrade my old system. :D

    I think this contest model is cheap and broken. Even with the rules in place, it encourages garbage comments. Its easy to post something that isn't spam yet doesn't really have any substance, and there is no way you (techspot) have the man power to qualitatively assess all of the posts someone makes. I typically like reading the comments on the news postings, and sometimes contribute, but this just adds a bunch of fluff that I don't have time for.

    Looks like the cpu/mobo/RAM combo is in the lead.

    I guess I should also say that I really appreciate what you guys do, and a giveaway is awesome. Thanks for all of your effort, I'm sure this adds to your workload.

    27" MONITOR, tired of playing BC2 on a small CRT with horrible color.

    I definitely could use some extra storage space, so 2 TB ext hdd it is!!!

    It's hard to choose, because the size of monitor doesn't mean a good quality of colors, what is important, when your hobby/interest is photography. So, in that case I would prefer more space fo my pictures :) Huge 2TB HDD or 128 GB SSD? And the coin told me "SSD" :)

    I'm not exactly surprised about what is leading this poll. Not being a fan of anything made by Steve Jobs, I went for the much needed, core components, upgrade.

    While a motherboard/ram/and cpu combo sounds like a good idea for my graphic design classes starting soon, i just cant resist the ipad...

    Should've gone with a less popular choice to increase my odds, oh well, let the games begin

    The SSD...most appealing....although if the "deluxe" case is the Level 10, then both myself , my modding supplies, and my local CNC specialists would be pleased to make it's acquaintance.

    I would like the cpu/mobo/memory as it would really make my system rock, also I just like the fun of putting a new system together.

    Well I could use the motherboard/cpu/memory combo but it would be nice to know what they were before picking it. For that I voted for the GTX 460. It would be an awesome card to have and would bring down the price of upgrading to a new PC.

    I would like to join the giveaway. Voted for netbook/laptop due to portability and productivity reasons. I really considered voting for the 27 inch monitor or the gtx 460, but 27 inch monitor with high resolution means more money (+$350) must be spent for video card in order to get decent frame rate and i am more emotionally attached to the new HD 6800 series than the gtx 460. :)

    I've been wanting a 27" or greater monitor for a while... My resistance to move back into a multimonitor setup has made me desire a larger single screen and since 30" monitors are out of my price range 27" seems like the magic number. High end 27" monitors are also out of my current price range.
