    I would like to nominate my friend named MUHAMMAD ALI
    as he keeps complaining when he plays with us about how he is playing with Low settings and still lags in the game or freeze. Everytime in Skype he'll keep screaming "I froze!" and dies in League of Legends. He often crashes on his PC and has to keep rebooting his PC. He keeps saying he will get a new computer as his mom will be getting him one, but everytime he asks, his mom always says "I have no money yet, next week alright?" Even though he heard this a couple of times, he would still be happy and say to us "IM GETTING A COMPUTER NEXT WEEK!" and get lied to again. He had to endure this for almost 6 months already and I feel really bad for him.

    So I hope to win the giveaway for him! Here is the pcpartspicker list :
    Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
    MSI Z97 PC MATE ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
    G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    Power Supply:
    EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
    Operating System:
    Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM (64-bit)
    Base Total: $495.72
    Thanks Razer!

    Here's the PCPartPicker link: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/protato117/saved/8hVp99

    and I would nominate an amazing friend of mine. Angelica.

    As it typically goes, we're both gamers, I have a gaming PC, she doesn't, but what makes her unique deserving to win this is that she's passionate about gaming, arts, be it digital or not, as well as programming/developing just like me. Since she doesn't have a PC or heck even a laptop for that matter, so she goes to my house and we take turns in playing, or to study and do some research about coding.

    She's really passionate and hardworking, and a decent PC like this would really help her out not just for her gaming needs but also as an aspiring developer. Recently, we joined a local Google Dev Fest and she won an arduino gemma kit, which is a tiny but powerful chip that any tech developer would want. It's a shame really, because she hasn't done any developing on the kit since she doesn't have a PC to use.

    She's an avid gamer and would really love to game, especially League of Legends, and other triple A games with me. I've taught her a lot about gaming and computer hardware lately, and we've both been studying our asses off in our computer science major though it really would be much better if she had her own PC to game and code on.

    She's been wishing for at the very least a decent PC to play video games on and code and do some digital arts which she is very talented at and recently won roughly $100 on an artwork that she worked on.

    She's currently saving her way up for a laptop to game just small games and do a lot of programming. and she's getting there. Working a part time job to not only buy a laptop but also pay for her college and her own daily allowance. She's really hardworking and deserving to win this contest and I really hope she would as it would really help her so much, and there's nothing more I could ask for but to see her happy.

    Here is the link to my parts list : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TBDchM

    And I would like to nominate my lovely wife. Her PC has been slowly dying off the last few years and I think its coming to the end of its life, not to mention it really can't keep up with the newer games.
    We don't get a lot of play time in, mainly on sundays, with my work schedule and her work/school/kids sports/ everything else, but it is "our" time, a time away from the stress of everyday life. She is an amazing woman, and I wish I could afford to buy her a new PC but at the current moment it is just not in the budget.
    She is my best friend, and its great being able to play games together whether its an MMO and she is my healer, or if we are just running around an open world exploring together, the setting does not matter , we have been exploring together for 15 years and it is still just as fun, even if he PC is lacking.

    i would like to nominate my wife Jessie Leto.
    i think she should win cause she is and amazing person and has always been there for me in my lowest points. all she wants in life is to help people and is going to school to be a social worker to help kids in the foster care system. also she sold her old gaming pc for gas money to move across the country when i needed her and i have no way of repaying her for making my life as amazing as it is today. if anyone deserves a new PC it is her. i have a few parts here that i was working on building her a computer piece by piece, i really hope she wins so we can game together again.

    Razer Help her out

    Motherboard: Asus Z170-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

    I nominate my friend Beals. He's been one of my best friends since high school, and was a roommate for a while when we were at the same college, which was approximately 5 years ago, which is when he bought his computer he still uses today. The only thing he's added is a 970 (which is awesome cause then he can SLI them) and a terabyte HDD. He really wants to upgrade his computer, but he's gonna being back to college to get his masters and can't afford to, and his computer is definitely starting to show its age. I owe him big time, because he got me out of a dead end job working retail, and got me a job at his employer. I'd love to be able to make it up to him, but I have bills and my car is on its last leg. Thanks for taking to time to read this and thank you for such an awesome give away!

    I would like this PC for my closest friend, my brother. At the moment, my family is going through a tough time and my parents are splitting up. My brother has been overwhelmingly kind to me and is helping me get through this situation. I just want to be able to truly say thank you to him for everything he has done for me.

    Thanks Razer,

    I am nominating my best friend Matt Wing. We have been friends since our high school days and have always helped each other out. Like me he is a gamer and works in IT. Currently he is using a 5 year old computer for gaming and that doesn't play very well. He was planning on building a new computer but has had to put it on hold since he recently proposed to his now fiance, so they are a little tight on money. I think a win like this would be a great wedding present for him!

    Hey, my name is Andrew and I'd really love to win this for my friend Leo.
    Parts: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2L9rZL (not including case / graphics card)

    Let me tell you why: My friend loves gaming, same as me, but unfortunately, he's been stuck with a small budget PC he built around 7 years ago, and has a hard time playing any new games really. He's been saying for the past 2 or 3 years that he wants to build a new rig, however he just doesn't have the money. I owe him big time because I personally only got into PC gaming VERY recently, and he was the one who helped me put together a build and built it for me. He's a PC enthusiast so its really unfortunate for him to not have a powerful rig himself because he's unable to afford it. He's working hard in college and just can't put the money towards it right now. I'd love to play with him online especially on games like Overwatch in the future and other games out right now but we can't due to technical limitations. It would be amazing for me to be able to pay him back by winning this and then he can finally have the powerful rig he's always wanted with the help of the I7 and the GTX970 and some brand new peripherals. Being able to give him the gaming experience he's always dreamt of would mean the world to me. Without him I wouldn't be a PC gamer. Also, for myself a brand new set of awesome new peripherals for my awesome new rig he put together for me would be soooo awesome!

    Hello all,
    Here is my list my friend helped me build:

    I would like to get this gift for my girlfriend, Christina. We met online in an mmorpg, and through many tough years we have been united from different sides of the country to live together. When we first met in the mmorpg Shaiya, the Emachines laptop she was using could barely run the game. She grew up poor and struggled to even keep hold of that laptop. Through tough times, she turned to gaming as a source of comfort and achievement.
    She gave up her entire family, her college dreams, and her lifestyle to move across the country to be with me. Through our own tough times, gaming has been the outlet for us to enjoy ourselves. However, every day it gets harder and harder. The laptop she has can no longer run any game and the desktop we got her is around 10 years old. We have tried updating parts but it just isn't enough. The below is what she goes through daily when she tries to play a game:

    1. The CD-ROM Drive does not open. We are unable to download anything that connects to her computer. This makes it very difficult to update things.
    2. It will take 15 minutes for the Windows login Screen to appear. Another 5 minutes for her to be able to type her password.
    3. Once she logs in it takes another 20 minutes for her to be able to even open her web browser, let alone a launcher for one of our MMORPGS or MOBAS. The lag is immense.
    4. When a game has to update it will take minimum 2 hours, and when downloading a game originally it will take around 5-7 hours.
    5. During game play she cannot alt tab because she will not be able to get back in unless she restarts and goes through the hour process of getting the computer back on. The computer will also crash her saying things like Physical Memory Dump( randomly in games/browsing).
    6. I bought her an old razer keyboard, but a lot of the times the computer won't read the keyboard on start up and we have to restart and use a broken up logitec one.
    7. All updates and downloads reset a lot of the times. Example being her Wifi stick won't connect to the internet due to the driver updates that keep resetting.
    8. When she is in the game, all loading screens will take around 8 minutes, and by the time she is out on the other side our parties will kick her due to the wait.

    As you can see from a couple examples, her computer can't make it much longer. We finally have gotten a new place for us to start our family, but with that comes more responsibility. We cannot afford to get her a computer for our biggest and most favorable hobby; gaming. I want to give her everything in the world because of how much she gave up for me. Please help me if you can, thank you.

    Games: World of Warcraft, Tera, League of Legends, Elder Scrolls Online,Skyforge, Fallout 4, and possibly Blade and Soul and Black Desert if we can get her a new computer!

    The picture below is of both of us. Thank you again for your consideration! Please have a happy new year!

    I would like to nominate my friend/brother willie gatus jr because he has an old and aged PC which is core2duo that has a lot of FPS drops and he cant play well and because we are gamers I want to give this rig as a birthday gift for him because he always help me on my projects like photo editing so as a reward he deserve to have this rig

    thank you NZXT and razer for sponsoring this wonderful event

    The pc is: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/CsfX4D
    the case I picked for him: NZXT S340 - Designed by Razer ATX Mid Tower Case
    and the graphics card : Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 4GB WINDFORCE 3X Video Card
    The part list:
    Processor: Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
    Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ES 750GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
    This part list is good for gaming it can meet for requirements for steam games that me and my other friend's can play.

    My friend name is Rian the reason why I think he deserves this new PC because he loves to play games but sometimes he cant play games with me and my friends because his laptop cant handle the requirements of the game to play the games, and he has to share the laptop with his sister, He also is running a laptop and he always tells me he wants a desktop, he has a job but he has payments (some car payments and insurance, and part phone bill so it will take him forever to get a PC that's really good). He is really a nice guy and he would love to have this PC and I would help him build it together and guide him on how to build his first PC. He would love to record games, live stream and etc but he cant on his laptop so i'm hoping we both can help him out so he can enjoy what he wants to do.

    Hi, I am Lauren and this is the build I have created for my best friend: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/veloxia/saved/6C6wrH I have also chosen the H440 chassis because hellooo beautiful.

    I nominate my friend, "first-to-get-shot" Fabian for he has never felt the light of Lord Gaben and the blessings of the sales he bestows us. Honored Officer John Bain cannot protect him from poor releases and the restraint of the 30 FPS lock on the his Xbox One. My poor friend is a virgin to the feeling of the liberating click from a mechanical switch beneath his fingers, only the cold and sweaty embrace an Xbone controller. Also he really wants Dying Light and I can't send that to him because I'm PC.

    All fun aside, he seriously is an important person to me and I owe him so much. I have only known him for a year but he is truly one of the most optimistic and caring friends I have ever had. His strength and support pushed me to join a gaming team in my home state; if it weren't for him, I would of been too cowardly to try out at all. So, I decided to nominate him because I feel that good people like him deserve something better. Because at the end of the day, despite me being a big American jerk, he still chooses to be there for me when I need it and this is just one of the many ways I can show him my appreciation.
    Plus we could finally play Broforce together or something like that. Might send him Shower with Your Dad Simulator 2015, because that shows my love for him, right?

    My friend that I would like to boost is my best friend, my son. At 11 years old he is into video game developing. We have purchased 2 computers for him, however they are not fast enough to fully support the programs that he is using to create the games. We live a decent life, but don't have the additional money to buy a full fledged gaming computer. It would be great to be able to help support him in his passion. This would be a great start.
