There is one rather big restriction for this contest, due to logistics and shipping risks this competition is only for people that reside in the Netherlands or Belgium. This system weigh massively and would be damaged if shipped too far out. If you do not reside in Benelux .. perhaps you have a relative there ? All we need is a Dutch or Belgium shipping address.

So what do you need to do to have a chance of winning this amazing prize package?


Your assignment:

We need to see a question answered.

  • What is the platform name for a PC with an AMD 790 chipset, Phenom II processor and Radeon HD 4890 called?

We'll give you a hint. The previous generation was called a certain 'platform'.
Honestly, can it be any simpler? If you have no clue. Here's a hint, read this article. If you still do not get it... just look at the hints on this page, I mean come on ;)
