    I live near Sydney... If only I liked CoD4.

      agreed lol, good luck to anyone who actually goes in it

    I like CoD4. If only I lived near Sydney ... and liked PCs

      andrew - doesn't matter where you live, initial part of the comp is online, and the actual event is in Sydney - the prize is flights and accomodation

    Why not use MW2, it has dedicated serv...oh wait.

    Why not CoD 6... oh yeah thats right :D

    I like the promotion, however most of the more hardcore PC gamers build their own rigs and turn their noses up at the idea of a pre-built package PC, myself included :P

      Step 1: Win the package PC
      Step 2: Customize/upgrade it however you want
      Step 3: ???
      Step 4: Profit

        Phase 1: Sell Alienware PC
        Phase 2: Buy 2x HD5870 or GTX480(when they launch) for Crossfire/SLI and use in existing rig
        Phase 3: ...
        Phase 4: Profit :P

      I am a hardcore PC gamer and the only reason I build my own rig / turn my nose up at pre-built is because it's cheaper. I would kill a small furry animal (not unlike your grandmother) for a $5800 alienware rig.

      ...If only my choice of clan game for the last year was CoD4 instead of L4D1.

      I am a hardcore PC gamer and the only reason I build my own rig / turn my nose up at pre-built is because it's cheaper to. I would kill a small furry animal (or play in a CoD4 tournament) for a $5800 alienware rig. It's not like they're going to put dodgy parts in a rig at that cost.

      If only my choice of game for the last year was CoD4 instead of L4D1 :(

    Its S&D 5vs5 promod if you are into that.

    Two problems for me.

    One: I don't have CoD4.

    Two: For me, FPS stands for 'fail-person shooter'.
