    M1 Tank Commander's Submission
    Twingo's Submission can be found at http://rbuggy.dyndns.org/data/twingo.xls

    Both parties purchased everything from newegg.com

    After much review, and it was hard, the winner of the first monthly Techie Forum PC build competition is...(drumroll please)


    It was a hard decision. They both had good setups. mrRT told me his official decision was a tie. So I went back and looked closely at the configurations with the main goal in mind. Multimedia. Twingo's configuration included good speakers, and a better integrated graphics card which are important for multimedia operations. However M1 did have a bigger HDD and Windows XP tends to work better for multimedia which made it hard. But in the end I figured you could always burn the stuff to CD.

    TWINGO you have $300 GAD on the way. M1 you have $30 GAD on the way.

    Note: If anyone needs the links for M1's setup PM me and I'll forward the PM to you. vB cuts up the links to save space so I just removed them...
