    Thank you everyone for taking part in this giveaway! We received a ton of awesome recommendations which struck us right in the feels, we think Dornisaurio's friend, Jonathan, deserves the Boost. GG WP all.

    Overcoming an addiction is a great deal and we'd like for you to keep up the determination and good work Dornisaurio. We’ll be reaching out to you guys shortly.

    Special mention: Kajnn for the cute couples photo and recommendation – we’ll be sending a Razer tee to you and your half.


    Who’s the Atlas to your P-Body, the Dom to your Marcus and the one who’ll always have your back? Your gaming buddy’s always up for a challenge – but what if his ancient rig struggles to hit 60FPS and perpetually taunts him with the dreaded BSOD?

    The best experiences are forged cooperatively and this season of giving, we’re inviting you to be that f**king awesome friend that’ll give your buddy a boost.

    We’ve teamed up with NZXT to give you the opportunity to level up your friend’s rig and score some sweet hardware upgrades for yourself.

    Here’s how:

    • Create a wishlist of PC parts (excluding a graphics card, the chassis and not factoring in any current discounts, rebates) of up to US$500 in value. Do so using www.pcpartpicker.com
    • Nominate a deserving friend AND tell us why he/she should win!
      Creativity earns you extra points.
    • Method of entry would be to share them in the comments to this thread:
      - PC Part Picker list + the Chassis (NZXT™ H440 /OR/ S340 – Designed by Razer)
      - Your nomination write-up – remember to let your friend know this cause we’ll be reaching out to him/her.
    Your nominated buddy will stand to win a brand new NZXT™ H440 /OR/ S340 – Designed by Razer with PC components of your choice AND a GeForce GTX970 graphics card. Both your friend and you will receive a complete Razer Chroma hardware suite consisting of the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition, the Razer Firefly, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma, and the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma.

    (Full terms and conditions here.)

    Get to planning your friend’s spanking new build - you guys might just be up for an epic upgrade.

    Remember to thank our friends at NZXT by following their social channels:

    Also when you win, we’d love for you to share photos of the build with us - GL HF!

    Can you build a PC (minus the GPU) for $500 where a 970 wont be bottle necked by something? A decent processor can be $300 and that doesn't leave much in the budget left for memory, HDD, motherboard, and PSU. I assume the case isn't included in that budget?

    I would like to nominate my friend CHUA JING HAU.
    I think he should win the list because everytime he fails to win a game, he is complaining about his pc, fps too low, lagging, blablabla...
    Everyday he is shouting to buy a new desktop but have no money.
    When he wins a game, he would say: See how I win this game with 30 fps only~~ When lose he start blaming resolution too low, can't play.
    I'm tired of that and wanted to wish him luck in winning the prize!

    We both love Razer!

    I would like to nominate, Jordi - LightningKillTV
    This is for one of my best friends from Belgium! His dream is to become a streamer. He has started to stream, but because he does play with a laptop, he can't play/stream with the quality he wishes for. He's in school, and therefore he does not have enough money to buy a new pc, but with some help, he will get there!

    I'm from Norway, and if he wins, i will fly down and help him build his pc. And mabye grab some Belgian beer and chocolate!

    Thank you Razer for hosting this, we love it! Merry Christmas!

    CPU: i5-440
    Cooler: CM Hyper 212 Evo
    Mobo: ASrock 197 Extreme3
    Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8GB
    Storage: WD AV 160GB
    Case: s340
    PSU: Corsair 500W 80+ Bronze
    OS: Linux

    Total of $497.74

    (Since the post says only excluding GPU I added the case to my cost)

    I would like to nominate my best friend Quincy.
    He doesn't have a PC. He only plays on console. He wants to make the switch but doesn't have the funds to make the switch. He is a college student who works part time. He lives in single bedroom apartment where he likes to play games with me. I don't get to use my PC as often as I like cause he is my best friend since 5th grade I would rather play consoles with him than PC alone. If he were to win this he would be able to get an entry level PC as the one I made here and begin his journey of the PC Master Race.

    The PC I have created allows the use of a good quad core CPU, a motherboard that isn't too far behind on specs, and will allow him to pick up a second 970 in the future. The storage is low but it is something he can expand. Plus I have an extra 1TB WD Blue I will put in his rig if he were to win.

    My friend is like a brother to me. Seeing him win would bring joy to his world and mine. Nothing can beat an afternoon of playing games with my best friend as my children take their naps. I put time into making sure all these components are good enough for current gaming, cooling, and expansion. Thank you for the importunity for me to play games with the person I consider a brother.

    Attached is a picture of him holding my daughter who he considers his niece. He was there for me when she was born as well as my son. This guy has been here for me in my toughest times and I want to return the favor.

    I would like to nominate my friend Jack. He has been a great friend to me though my really tough times as he got me into pc gaming to help me take my mind off of the negatives. I think that it is only right that I return the favour for him and this would be a great way to say thank you for what he has done for me.

    Hi i'm Eventine,

    1) This is my PC parts list:
    - Intel Core i5-6600 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor
    - MSI H170A Gaming Pro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
    - G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
    - Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    - Corsair CX 500W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

    here the link: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/f8mKzy
    Total Prize: $487.94

    Technically speaking is a really good gaming PC, fully upgradable in time with SSD, Graphic card, CPU cooling etc. It has the newest intel processor, DDR4 and MSI gaming motherboard. I want to have a little margin because of market's variations. The 500W PSU avoids SLI or CrossFire, but reaching 506$ you can buy Corsair CX 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply if you are thinking about multi-GPU in future.

    2) The buddy I would like to nominate is my little brother, Lorenzo, which is my friend in games too. Our parents can't afford a new Gaming PC, so he has to play games on a 7 years old bad notebook. He's getting tired on trying to play PC games (becouse of LAGs, freezes and CTD he cannot even play old games) so he's moving to Mobile (Tablet) games or he just stands near me watching me play. And this is really sad: I tryed several PC builds, but my parents said "No, too much" all the times (I've even try a low cost APU without graphic card). Everyday he's asking me "Giò (my name) will Santa bring me a new PC so I will play with you?" This PC would be a really amazing gift to him, and if I will win the prize, I would be very proud of myself in front of my parents... and I would be my little brother hero too. :)

    Hi, I am Arthur

    and this is my list.


    This PC is good because of the CPU, and motherboard. The PC also has a 16GB HyperX Fury Blue RAM, what is important for gaming.

    This would be a gift for my great friend Shaw, who is upgrading his setup, and urgently needs a new PC.
  14. forget my friend I need a new rig lol

    I would like to nominate my friend Nicholas Green aka MineDerpGaming because he has been my friend ever since i was 3, growing up I lived a life of being bullied and he was my only friend, he helped me get through this by playing videogames with me in elementary, he showed me the joy of my life... Gaming, but once I moved away in 4th grade he went through alot and went through a depressing period after his parents divorced when I discovered this I helped him through it and I found out he wanted to do YouTube! I was excited because that was something I was into as well, and because he helped me deal with bullying ever since I was a child I want to help him with YouTube by giving him this.
