    Cool Compo Winner.......*drum roll*

    Right you bunch of Tech Fueled, Silicon Charged PC nutters

    We have deliberated, cogitated and digested.

    We had lots of entries that were ALL RIGHT...and a few that were so wide of the mark, they were funnier than the Tie Breakers


    But...it comes down to ONE person who cracked the biggest smile......by a mile and we kinda felt sorry for him in one hit.

    Custom PC is all about getting your PC the way you WANT IT....getting it better and faster and cooler.

    And that's how we decided........

    Now the Runners Up Answers....but NOT WINNERS are worth quoting, cos thats what its about..having a laugh and they were quite amusing.
    We asked: "Why should YOU win the Subscrition?" in less than 20 words

    Quote time:


    Bobby Sixkiller...."Custom PC should send me the mag as I have a £12.97 ebuyer case and I need help"

    Ceryndrion....."I should get the subscription because I am so awful at modding, I need all the help I can get"

    Mozzer...."Living in a one-bedroomed flat with my dad, who waltzes around in his y-fronts is hell. Give me book."

    Knoxville...."one time last week i stayed up past my bedtime reading custom pc magazine and mommy shouted at me!"



    all really funny....and worth a round of applause, cos thats all they are GONNA get this time around

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now I'll show ya how to NOT win..... EVER....anything, but still be funny, and its courtesy of our most excellent and bodacious Silent Death who managed a 100 word entry and finished with a really funny but sadly not relevent entry of:

    "Also, if I don't win, I hope your face melts off. Thank you."

    Which DID make me laugh, but was a bit high on the word count

    m0dm0


    who summed up a real NEED to win with this corker....

    "Had 8 anwsers but PC BSODed....start again! bring me some luck and send the mags to one unlucky bloke"




    WELL DONE m0dm0.....you did it matey......

    I will PM you for your address and we shall sort out ONE YEARS FREE SUNBSCRIPTION TO CUSTOM PC

    You all did......VERY WELL.....

    actually .....some of you got some answers so badly wrong I wondered just WHAT you were reading to get them.....

    Hands up who thought it was 210 fps in Q3 when it was clearly 60fps (and yes those of you at 59.5 fps WERE considered CORRECT)
