Win an iBUYPOWER Chimera 2 Gaming System with an I7-980X CPU

Core i for the Extreme guy (or gal) Contest

Our good friends over at Intel and iBuyPower have assembled a Killer Chimera 2 system that we are more than happy to give away to one of our lucky forum members in the coming weeks! This is your chance to win an Intel X58 chipset and Core I7-980X powered gaming system (aka Gulftown) for just being an active member of Legit Reviews! This system isn’t your average system either as it is packed full of high-end components like an ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB video card, 6GB of DDR3 1600MHz memory, LG Blu-Ray player and since Intel is sponsoring the contest you know it has to have an Intel 80GB SSD along inside along with another 1TB hard drive for file storage! All this goodness is packed inside the Chimera Inferno 2 gaming case and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit has been installed. Not only will this system look good, but it will also be a solid overclocker and gaming system for one lucky winner here on Legit Reviews.
