Ok, glad I found this.
I was about to destroy my phone settings trying to get the mobile version to show up. lol
I need to start looking on Craigslist, damn...
Some amazing prices for this build. I do wonder tho is it ppl jumping ship from x99.
Thanks for this. I havent build mine yet. Now time to do some comparison shopping, might switch to a different cpu now.
Only thing I'm pissed about now tho is ram pricing went up over the past few months.
Yup, this is exactly what I did. I lurked for the longest, read forums posts, etc. Only that that really made me join was saving part lists and I wanted to leave a comment on a thread.
Congrats to all the winners. I can stop checking my emails every 5 minutes now...lol
Another giveaway at the same time? And ending at the same time?
Amazing. A handful of folks are gonna be happy this time.
Good luck everyone. Happy Holidays. Some folks are gonna have a nice after Christmas gift, lol.

Yea congrats to the winners.
Winning entries are already posted on the giveaway page.
All I know is it wasnt me...lol
No, thank you for the opportunity to win some great prizes.
Most of the suggestions I had were put in ASUS products already, lol.
Uh oh another giveaway. Time to win this!!!!
Yea I just think the odds were in favor of a Z170 build getting picked if thats what the majority went with.
A couple of folks were lucky enough to win, the rest of us wasnt. Its just the odds ppl. No big conspiracy, lol.
Here's to looking forward to another great giveaway from MSI and PCPartPicker.
You guys are great for doing these contests.
lol, yes back to reality....
Better have your blood pressure pill ready....sodium levels are steadily rising. lol
It would seem this way but the winners were supposed to be drawn at random. Maybe those of us that went with X99 were in the minority. Probably extreme minority.
Technically they did use it at least once to put the build together, lol.
I feel you tho.
I just joined last year but I used to lurk like mad before joining.
Yes Franko74SR, we all are that didnt win. Such is life.
Yes, we all cried a lil inside...
I forgot all about this contest, lol. I dont think I was contacted anyway.
Yea man its too late now.
I mean when it said up to $2500 who wouldnt try to get as close to that ? lol. Some even said they picked 2 video cards to sell one later. Everyone should have went all out on their builds.
Especially since its a random drawing.
Now its down to 2472. Funny, when I was making changes before the deadline the prices never fluctuated.
I think you do have to have storage. There are parts that are invalid so I assume the ones listed would be valid.
To be safe I would just pick at least one from every part they have listed they say to pick.
I picked two for storage and two video cards. Might as well post my list since most have:
It was 2498 when I submitted it.
Thanks for posting this. I thought I was entered but I wasnt. I didnt let that woobox app have access to my Twitter, I just manually followed what I was supposed to.
You have to let that woobox app have permission for it to count.
Good thing is I changed my list a few times since the non entry so what I have now is exactly what I wanted.
Damn...as much as I feel bad for the orig winner not responding in time to the email...
.............So you're saying there's a chance........
It would be so funny if he did win. I can see him looking at the parts when they arrive with a eeww look, then throwing them in the trash while saying ..'peasants'.
Barry made a good point about the bigger case means you have options to add components in the future if you want to.
i7, bigger case...his build is just more future proof IMO.
And lol after clicking on the Doritos link. And its a part in someone else's build....amazing.
I also love their cases. I havent built a PC yet, plan on building my first one soon. Money wise I probably wont pick their case but when funds and job situation gets better I do want a Fractal case for future builds. Or just upgrading the case from my first build.
And we get some free food?!?!
How can anyone not vote for Barry?
I also vote for Barry's just because I dont like cases or mobo smaller than Micro.
Yup, he nailed it with the chips.
His is the best.
Just dropped by to say I am stuck on pic 11....I havent seen any other pics yet.
I just wanted to say that case....cable management is amazing. Thanks to this its getting added to my favs now.
I have several parts lists up for when I do my first build. One has no gpu also. I am holding out for the 1070.
I dont have much to add thats already been said.
Filters and features.
Like for me I start with 4 ram slots. And just go from there. Maybe you want HDMI or wifi on board, maybe it doesnt matter, etc. Overclock mobo or non OC, or it doesnt matter, etc.
The compatibility filter helps alot too.
You picked a micro tower case so any ATX mobo wont be available due to compatibility filter. I sort by price and start with the cheapest option and work my way down.
Just use the filters: video card - 2GB or 4GB of memory or it doesnt matter, etc
I am about to build me first PC and I think I finally settled on a good on at a decent price.
