As long as it's in the system builder

Hi there,

Looks like Quebec is out of it again. Maybe I should move. :D

Are laptops included? I'm assuming so, since it's in the system builder, but it says "PC".

Let me know,
Thanks.

Ahh..ok. So we can't go outside of what the system builder is offering? Say it lists asus and gigabyte mobo options but I want a dfi? No go?

You cant "not" take some parts. For example, I cant not select a case. This is dumb, because some people might already have parts that they want to use and this just consumes their 2000 dollar budget.

In other words, can I just pick the parts I want as long as they total under 2000 dollars, and put them in list? Whats the difference anyways, its not like im taking more, im actually taking less parts (but the beefy ones)

Pity you must use the system builder.... so far there's only one setup with Conroe options and it's way overpriced.

Damn we Quebeckers can't participate? There's a bunch of contests we can't participate, does someone know why?

In the system builder, you can use the ADVANCED SEARCH button at the top right corner of each component, and try searching for the item you want, be it mobo or ram or gfx cards. [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=28]NCIX[/rfdlink] is flexible with system builder, just that they only put the populars parts for selection on default.

re: exclusion of quebec

Several quebeckers ask why Quebec is excluded. i can't speak for [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=28]NCIX[/rfdlink], but generally...


Unfortunately, your province's promotional contest laws are very onerous for businesses. they have to submit advertisements for approval, post security bonds, etc.

for this reason, many businesses choose to specifically exclude quebec.

Can we pick parts that are in limited supplies, like the Conroe chips?

i did, and i've seen others do it. if they don't have them and you win, you'll probably just have to pick something else.

i have a question... i think i changed my e-mail address for my account, and i don't remember which e-mail i used to register my RFD account. IF i win, will the e-mail be sent to my current e-mail address?

We'll probably contact people via PM if we don't hear anything through email.

re: laptops
Yeah, you can build a laptop. Just use the system builder.

re: Options
There are lots of options if you click on Advanced Options.
